1 And Hannah prayed,
and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted
in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because
I rejoice in thy salvation.
2 There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee:
neither is there any rock like our God.
3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come
out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by
him actions are weighed.
4 The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled
are girded with strength.
5 They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and
they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven;
and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.
6 The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the
grave, and bringeth up.
7 The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and
8 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the
beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to
make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the
earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them.
9 He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall
be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
10 The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out
of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the
ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king,
and exalt the horn of his anointed.
