12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his inheritance.
13 The Lord has looked down from heaven. He has seen all the sons of men.
14 From his well-prepared dwelling place, he has gazed upon all who dwell on the earth.
15 He has formed the hearts of each one of them; he understands all their works.
16 The king is not saved by great power, nor will the giant be saved by his many powers.
17 The horse is false safety; for he will not be saved by the abundance of his powers.
18 Behold, the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him and on those who hope in his mercy,
19 so as to rescue their souls from death and to feed them during famine.
20 Our soul remains with the Lord. For he is our helper and protector.
21 For in him, our heart will rejoice, and in his holy name, we have hoped.
22 Let your mercy be upon us, O Lord, just as we have hoped in you.
6 For that night was known beforehand by our fathers, so that, knowing the truth of the oaths in which they had trusted, they might be more peaceful in their souls.
7 Yet your people received not only the salvation of the just, but also the destruction of the unjust.
8 For just as you wounded our adversaries, so also did you greatly esteem calling us forth.
9 For the just children of goodness were secretly offering sacrifice, and in agreement they administered the law of justice, so that both good and bad would be able to receive justice, and so that you might now approve of their chanting to the father.
