Context Readings

Hannah's Triumphant Prayer

7 Jehovah dispossesseth, and He maketh rich, He maketh low, yea, He maketh high. 8 He raiseth from the dust the poor, From a dunghill He lifteth up the needy, To cause them to sit with nobles, Yea, a throne of honour He doth cause them to inherit, For to Jehovah are the fixtures of earth, And He setteth on them the habitable world. 9 The feet of His saints He keepeth, And the wicked in darkness are silent, For not by power doth man become mighty.
