katapi HOME 1 Samuel 2:1-10 - Hannah's song of praise.  1Sm.2.1-10

2 1 Hannah also prayed and said,

"My heart exults in Yahweh;
my strength is exalted in Yahweh.
My mouth derides my enemies,
because I rejoice in your salvation.

2 2 "There is none holy like Yahweh,
there is none besides you;
there is no rock like our God.
2 3 Talk no more so very proudly,
let not arrogance come from your mouth;
for Yahweh is a God of knowledge,
and by him actions are weighed.
2 4 The bows of the mighty are broken,
but the feeble gird on strength.
2 5 Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread,
but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger.
The barren has borne seven,
but she who has many children is forlorn.
2 6 Yahweh kills and brings to life;
he brings down to Sheol and raises up.
2 7 Yahweh makes poor and makes rich;
he brings low, he also exalts.
2 8 He raises up the poor from the dust;
he lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honour.
For the pillars of the earth are YahwehS,
and on them he has set the world.

2 9 "He will guard the feet of his faithful ones;
but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness;
for not by might shall a man prevail.
2 10 The adversaries of Yahweh shall be broken to pieces;
against them he will thunder in heaven.
Yahweh will judge the ends of the earth;
he will give strength to his king,
and exalt the power of his anointed."
