9 The eye [`ayin] also which saw [shazaph] him shall see him no more [yacaph]; neither shall his place [maqowm] any more behold [shuwr]

There is but one source from which we obtain life,
fulfillment, and happiness.
And that source is God, Jesus Christ, Bible doctrine,

of our life.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
