Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke,11 the earth will wear out like a garment12 and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation13 will last forever,14 my righteousness will never fail.15
Awake, awake!22 Clothe yourself with strength,23 O arm24 of the LORD; awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of old.25 Was it not you who cut Rahab26 to pieces, who pierced that monster27 through?
that you forget40 the LORD your Maker,41 who stretched out the heavens42 and laid the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror43 every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor?44
