|2||Revised Standard Version||Passage|
|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 honor.
For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S,
and on them he has set the world.
|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.
|10||The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; |
against them he will thunder in heaven.
The LORD will judge the ends of the earth;
he will give strength to his king,
and exalt the power of his anointed."
|11||Then Elka'nah went home to Ramah. And the boy ministered to the LORD, in the presence of Eli the priest.||Samuel ministers at Shiloh. 1Sm.2.11-26|
