38 whatever prayer or petition
anyone from Your people Israel might have—
each man knowing his own afflictions[a](A)
and spreading out his hands toward this temple(B)
39 may You hear in heaven, Your dwelling place,
and may You forgive, act, and repay the man,
according to all his ways, since You know his heart,
for You alone know every human heart,(C)
40 so that they may fear(D) You
all the days they live on the land(E)
You gave our ancestors.
