Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 2:1 - And Hannah prayed, and said:
My heart exulteth in Jehovah;
My horn is exalted in Jehovah;

Because I rejoice in thy salvation.

There is none holy as Jehovah;
For there is none besides thee,
Neither is there any rock like our God.

Talk no more so exceeding proudly;
Let not arrogancy come out of your mouth;
For Jehovah is a God of knowledge,
And by him actions are weighed.

The bows of the mighty men are broken;
And they that stumbled are girded with strength.

But the wicked shall be put to silence in darkness;
For by strength shall no man prevail.
