Quotation by unknown author

The Lord killeth, and maketh alive; he bringeth down to the grave,
and bringeth up.
The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth
up.
Heraiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar
from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit
the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's and
he hath set the world upon them.
He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent
in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven
shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth;
and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his
anointed.
