New International Version
Psalm 81: 8 "Hear, O my people, and I will warn you—
if you would but listen to me, O Israel!
Psalm 125: 5 But those who turn to crooked ways
the LORD will banish with the evildoers.
Peace be upon Israel.
Face what's around you. Don't hide from it. When you face it, you can be who you want to be in the situation but when you shy away from it, you give the situation control over your will.
