No king is saved by the size of his army;1 no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse2 is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes3 of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,419
to deliver them from death5 and keep them alive in famine.620
We wait7 in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,8 for we trust in his holy name.922
May your unfailing love10 rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
