"To God belong wisdom1 and power;2 counsel and understanding are his.3
What he tears down4 cannot be rebuilt;5 the man he imprisons cannot be released.6
If he holds back the waters,7 there is drought;8 if he lets them loose, they devastate the land.9
To him belong strength and victory;10 both deceived and deceiver are his.11
