1 Samuel 2:7–8

oThe Lord makes poor and makes rich;

phe brings low and he exalts.

qHe raises up the poor from the dust;

he lifts the needy from the ash heap

rto make them sit with princes

and inherit a seat of honor.

sFor the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,

and on them he has set the world.

and xits place knows it no more.

Psalm 113:7

and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
