1 Samuel 2:8
Raiseth, from the dust, the poor, From the dunghill, uplifteth the needy, To give them a dwelling with nobles, And, a throne of glory, to make them inherit. For, to Yahweh, belong the pillars of the earth, And he setteth thereon the habitable world.
For, not always, shall the needy, be forgotten, - nor, the hope of the oppressed, perish for ever.
What, then, shall one answer the messengers of a nation? That Yahweh, hath founded Zion, And in her, shall seek refuge the oppressed of his people.
Return to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope, - Even to-day, do I declare - Double, will I return to thee!
But against none of the sons of Israel, shall a dog sharpen his tongue, neither against man nor beast, - that ye may know that Yahweh maketh a difference between Egypt and Israel.
But, the king, shall rejoice in God, - Every one shall glory who sweareth by him, For the mouth of them who speak falsehood, shall be stopped.
The upright seeth and is glad, And, all perverseness, hath closed her mouth.
Now we know that, whatsoever things the law saith, to them who are within the law, it speaketh, in order that, every mouth, may be stopped and all the world come, under penal sentence, unto God.
