O let not the scepter of wickedness rest upon the land of the righteous, lest the righteous should put forth their hands to do wrong. Psalm 125:3(NASB)

Lord, arise and have compassion on Zion, and let the time to be gracious to her, yes, the appointed time, come; Psalm 102:13(NASB) yes, let the LORD build up Zion and appear in His glory. Lord, regard the prayer of the destitute and do not despise their prayer. Psalm 102:16-17(NASB)

O Lord GOD, please stop: How can Jacob stand, for he is small? Amos 7:5(NASB) O let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary, for Your sake, O Lord. Daniel 9:17(NASB)
