1 And Hannah prayed and said: My heart exults in Jehovah; My horn is exalted in Jehovah; My mouth is enlarged against my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.
2 There is none holy like Jehovah, For there is none besides You; Nor is there a rock like our God.
3 Talk no more so very proudly; Do not let arrogance go forth from your mouth; For Jehovah is a God of knowledge, And actions are weighed by Him.
4 The bows of the mighty men are broken, And those who stumbled are girded with strength.
5 Those who were full have hired themselves out for food, And those who were hungry are not so any longer. She who was barren has borne seven, And she who had many children languishes.
6 Jehovah kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and brings up.
7 Jehovah makes poor and makes rich; He makes low and also lifts up.
8 He raises the poor from the dust, From the ash heap He lifts the needy, That He may seat them with princes And cause them to inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of the earth are Jehovah's, And He has set the world upon them.
9 He will keep the feet of His faithful ones, But the wicked will be silenced in darkness; For not by strength shall any man prevail.
10 Those who strive with Jehovah will be shattered; Against them He will thunder in heaven. Jehovah will judge the ends of the earth; And He will give strength to His king And exalt the horn of His anointed.
