Amos 2:14–15; Romans 9:16

14  fFlight shall perish from the swift,

fand the strong shall not retain his strength,

gnor shall the mighty save his life;

15  he who handles the bow shall not stand,

and he who is hswift of foot shall not save himself,

inor shall he who rides the horse save his life;


16 So then it depends not on human will or exertion,1 but on God, who has mercy.
