The quality of mercy is not strained;
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed—
It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.
Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
– Psalm 6:2
God be merciful unto us, and bless; and cause his face to shine upon us.
– Psalm 67:1
