121Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has 2chosen as his heritage!
The LORD 3looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man;
from 4where he sits enthroned he 5looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth,
he who fashions the hearts of them all and observes all their deeds.
166The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
177The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue.
Behold, 8the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, 9on those who hope in his steadfast love,
that he may 10deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in 11famine.
Our soul 12waits for the LORD; he is our 13help and 14our shield.
For our heart is 15glad in him, because we 16trust in his holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
