But I would seek God, put my case to God,
who does great things beyond comprehension, wonderful things without number;
who provides rain over the earth's surface, sends water to the open country,
exalts the lowly, raises mourners to victory;
who frustrates the schemes of the clever so that their hands achieve no success,
trapping the wise in their cleverness so that the plans of the devious don't succeed.
They encounter darkness during the day, and at noon they fumble about as at night.
Yet he rescues the orphan from the sword of their mouth, the needy from the grip of the strong;
so the poor have hope and violence shuts its mouth.
