    With deep respect for the religious beliefs of all Alaskans, I                                                             
      offer a prayer from the words of William Shakespeare in the                                                              
    Merchant of Venice:                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
    The quality of mercy is not strained.                                                                                       
    It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven                                                                                  
    Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:                                                                                  
    It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.                                                                              
    'Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes                                                                                 
    The throned monarch better than his crown.                                                                                  
    His scepter shows the force of temporal power,                                                                              
    The attribute to awe and majesty                                                                                            
    Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;                                                                               
    But mercy is above this sceptered sway.                                                                                     
    It is enthroned in the hearts of kings;                                                                                     
    It is an attribute to God Himself;                                                                                          
    And earthly power doth then show likest God's

    When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew,                                                                                 
    Though justice be thy plea, consider this:                                                                                  
    That in the course of justice none of us                                                                                    
    Should see salvation. We do pray for mercy,                                                                                 
    And that same prayer doth teach us all to render                                                                            
    The deeds of mercy. I have spoke thus much                                                                                  
    To mitigate the justice of thy plea,                                                                                        
    Which, if thou follow, this strict court of Venice                                                                          
    Must needs give sentence 'gainst the merchant there.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
       And I ask that we remember the prophetic words of Amos in                                                               
    5:24: But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness                                                             
    like a mighty stream.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
    As we say together, Amen.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Representative McCabe.
