1 Samuel 2:1–10

And Hannah prayed, and said,

aMy heart rejoiceth in the Lord,

bMine horn is exalted in the Lord:

My mouth is enlarged over mine enemies;

Because I crejoice in thy salvation.

dThere is none holy as the Lord:

For there is enone beside thee:

Neither is there any frock like our God.

Talk no more so exceeding proudly;

gLet not arrogancy come out of your mouth:

For the Lord is a God of knowledge,

And by him actions are weighed.

hThe bows of the mighty men are broken,

And they that stumbled are girded with strength.

iThey that were full have hired out themselves for bread;

And they that were hungry ceased:

So that kthe barren hath born seven;

And lshe that hath many children is waxed feeble.

mThe Lord killeth, and maketh alive:

He bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.

The Lord nmaketh poor, and maketh rich:

oHe bringeth low, and lifteth up.

pHe raiseth up the poor out of the dust,

And lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill,

qTo set them among princes,

And to make them inherit the throne of glory:

For rthe pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,

And he hath set the world upon them.

sHe will keep the feet of his saints,

And the wicked shall be silent in darkness;

For by strength shall no man prevail.

10  The adversaries of the Lord shall be tbroken to pieces;

uOut of heaven shall he thunder upon them:

wThe Lord shall judge the ends of the earth;

And he shall give strength unto his king,

And xexalt the horn of his anointed.
