But the plans of the LORD stand firm8 forever, the purposes9 of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,10 the people he chose11 for his inheritance.1213
From heaven the LORD looks down13 and sees all mankind;1414
from his dwelling place15 he watches all who live on earth--
he who forms16 the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.1716
No king is saved by the size of his army;18 no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse19 is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes20 of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,21
