iTrust in the Lord with all your heart,

and jdo not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways kacknowledge him,

and he lwill make straight your paths.

but the righteous will tflourish like a green leaf.

and blessed is he qwho trusts in the Lord.


24  A man's nsteps are from the Lord;

how then can man understand his way?


22  bA wise man scales the city of the mighty

and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.


31  nThe horse is made ready for the day of battle,

but othe victory belongs to the Lord.
