for me.

who is he that will strike hands with me?  17:4 For thou hast hid
their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them.

children shall fail.

as a shadow.

stir up himself against the hypocrite.

hands shall be stronger and stronger.

of my heart.

darkness.

darkness.

art my mother, and my sister.

together is in the dust.
