Context Readings

Hannah's Triumphant Prayer

7 The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low and lifts up. 8 He raises the poor from the dust,
He lifts the needy from the ash heap
To make them sit with nobles,
And inherit a seat of honor;
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,
And He set the world on them.
9 He keeps the feet of his saints, and the wicked perish in darkness, for no man shall prevail by their own strength.
