English.png English text

The righteous love for ever more;
their reward also is with the Lord;
and the care of them is with the Most High.

Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom,
and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand.

For with His right hand shall He cover them,
and with His arm shall He protect them.

Wisdom 5: 15, 16
