You are my mouth, O God, as You explain why You are handing people over to trouble because of what they are doing to Jerusalem. We will be as Your mouth as You cause many to know Your might in order that many shall know You are the LORD.
This exhortation does not come in error or uncleanness, nor is it in deceit. For we have been approved by You, O GOD, to be entrusted with the gospel, not as pleasing men, but You, who tests our hearts. You have made us witnesses -- and we have exhorted, comforted, and charged Your people that they might be worthy of You, who calls us into Your kingdom and glory. And Your Word is welcome to us, not as the word of men, but as it is in truth that effectively works in us who believe.
