Azariah and the Three Jews 2–4,11–20

2Then Azariah stood still in the fire and prayed aloud:
3 ‘Blessed are you, O Lord, God of our ancestors, and worthy of praise;
   and glorious is your name for ever!
4 For you are just in all you have done;
   all your works are true and your ways right,
   and all your judgements are true.
11 For your name’s sake do not give us up for ever,
   and do not annul your covenant.
12   Do not withdraw your mercy from us,
for the sake of Abraham your beloved
   and for the sake of your servant Isaac
   and Israel your holy one,
13 to whom you promised
   to multiply their descendants like the stars of heaven
   and like the sand on the shore of the sea.
14 For we, O Lord, have become fewer than any other nation,
   and are brought low this day in all the world because of our sins.
15 In our day we have no ruler, or prophet, or leader,
   no burnt-offering, or sacrifice, or oblation, or incense,
   no place to make an offering before you and to find mercy.
16 Yet with a contrite heart and a humble spirit may we be accepted,
17   as though it were with burnt-offerings of rams and bulls,
   or with tens of thousands of fat lambs;
   such may our sacrifice be in your sight today,
   and may we unreservedly follow you,*
   for no shame will come to those who trust in you.
18 And now with all our heart we follow you;
   we fear you and seek your presence.
19 Do not put us to shame,
   but deal with us in your patience
   and in your abundant mercy.
20 Deliver us in accordance with your marvellous works,
   and bring glory to your name, O Lord.
