In God have we made our boast all the day long, And we will give thanks unto thy name for ever. Selah
They that trust in their wealth, And boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
They prate, they speak arrogantly: All the workers of iniquity boast themselves.

Boast not thyself of tomorrow; For thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? shall the saw magnify itself against him that wieldeth it? as if a rod should wield them that lift it up, or as if a staff should lift up him that is not wood.
But ye shall be named the priests of Jehovah; men shall call you the ministers of our God: ye shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
