The Lord is my hope: I shall not be ashamed in him. 2 For according to his glory he made me; And according to his goodness, 1 So H:B ‘grace’. so he gave to me; 3 And according to his compassion he raised me up; And according to his great beauty he exalted me; 4 And he brought me up from the depths of Sheol, And from the mouth of death he drew me. 5 And I laid low my enemies, And he justified me in his grace; 6 For I believed in the Lord's Christ, And it was plain to me that he was the Lord. 7 And he showed me 2 So B:H ‘him’. his sign, And led me in his light; 8 And he gave me the rod of his strength, That I might subdue the thoughts of peoples, And lay low the power of mighty men; 9 To make war by his word, And to gain the victory by his might. 10 And the Lord cast down my enemy by his word, And he became like the chaff which the wind carries away. 11 And I gave praise to the Most High, Because he made great his servant and the son of his handmaid. Hallelujah.
