Come now, you who say: To-day or to-morrow we will go into this city, and spend a year there, and trade, and make money.
And you do not know what shall happen to-morrow.

And he prayed earnestly that it might not

And the heaven gave rain
My brothers, if any among you errs from the
Let him know,
error of his way
