Changed their glory

Blessed art thou, O Israel, who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help and the sword of thy excellency? Thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee, and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory and the lifter up of my head.
