            He casts down, He also lifts high.

2:8               He raises the poor from the dust,

            Lifts up the needy from the dunghill,

            Setting them with nobles,

Granting them seats of honor.

For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S;

He has set the world upon them.

2:9               He guards the steps of His faithful,

But the wicked perish in darkness-

For not by strength shall man prevail.

2:10           The foes of the LORD shall be shattered;

He will thunder against them in the heavens.

The LORD will judge the ends of the earth.

He will give power to His king,

And triumph to His anointed one.
