1 Sam 2:1-10 Wednesday Morning 2
My heart rejoices in Yahweh; * I find my strength in Yahweh.
I laugh out loud at my enemies * as I rejoice in your saving help.
There is no Holy One like Yahweh; * there is no Rock like our God.
Bring your arrogant words to an end, * keep your lips from boasting,
for Yahweh is an all-knowing God, * the Mighty who weighs men's deeds.
The bows of the mighty are broken, * but the weak are clothed with strength.
Those with plenty must labor for bread, * but the hungry need work no more.
The childless wife has children now, * but the fruitful wife bears no more.
Yahweh puts to death and gives life, * he brings men to the grave and back.
The Lord makes poor and makes rich, * he brings men low and raises them on high.
He raises the poor from the dust, * he lifts the needy from the refuse dump,
to make them companions of princes, * to give them a glorious throne.
For the foundations of the earth are the Lord's, * on them he has set the world.
He guards the steps of his faithful, * but the wicked perish in Darkness.
For no man's power gives him victory; * the enemies of Yahweh shall be broken.
The Most High will thunder in the heavens; * Yahweh will judge the whole world.
He will give power to his king * and exalt the might of his anointed.
