to interpret your word

Laurentius de Voltolina [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons, 14th century

Instruct my speech and touch my lips with graciousness;
 make me keen to understand, quick to learn,
  and able to remember;
   and keep me finely tuned
    to interpret your word,
     for you are God for ever and ever.

Thomas Aquinas, 1225-1274, Roman Catholic philosopher and theologian


Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed,
rightly handling the word of truth.
