1 Samuel 2:9
He keepeth the feet of his saints, but the wicked are silenced in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
He delighteth not in the strength of the horse, he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man;
The king is not saved by the multitude of his forces; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
Will he esteem thy riches? Not gold, nor all the resources of strength!
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to the intelligent, nor yet favour to men of knowledge; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength; but the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
Then will his mind change, and he will pass on, and become guilty: this his power is become his +god.
lest strangers be filled with thy wealth, and the fruits of thy toil come into the house of a stranger;
1 Samuel 2:31
Behold, days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father's house, that there shall not be an old man in thy house.
For Jehovah hath ransomed Jacob, and redeemed him from the hand of one stronger than he.
I will seek the lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up the broken, and will strengthen that which was sick; but I will destroy the fat and the strong: I will feed them with judgment.
Therefore will I bring the worst of the nations, and they shall possess their houses; and I will make the pride of the strong to cease; and their sanctuaries shall be profaned.
Or how can any one enter into the house of the strong man and plunder his goods, unless first he bind the strong man? and then he will plunder his house.
But no one can, having entered into his house, plunder the goods of the strong man unless he first bind the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.
but when the stronger than he coming upon him overcomes him, he takes away his panoply in which he trusted, and he will divide the spoil he has taken from him.
And flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver his soul.
