One of the things that jumped out at me:
vs 4: The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
vs 5: The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward.
God has given, awakened, opened. I think it is sad and dangerous if we forget where all the good: gifts of wisdom, knowledge & strength of character comes from.
