6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all their host by the breath of his mouth. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 The LORD looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men; 13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 from where he sits enthroned he looks forth on all the inhabitants of the earth, 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth--
15 he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds. 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine. 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and shield. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21 Yea, our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 Let thy steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in thee. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
