Proverbs 30:5-6

5-6The believer replied, "Every promise of God proves true;

he protects everyone who runs to him for help.

So don't second-guess him;

he might take you to task and show up your lies."

7-9And then he prayed, "God, I'm asking for two things

before I die; don't refuse me—

Banish lies from my lips

and liars from my presence.

Give me enough food to live on,

neither too much nor too little.

If I'm too full, I might get independent,

saying, 'God? Who needs him?'

If I'm poor, I might steal

and dishonor the name of my God."
