Psalm 113:7–8; Daniel 4:17; Luke 1:52

He mraises the poor from the dust

and lifts the needy from the ash heap,

to make them nsit with princes,

with the princes of his people.

17 The sentence is by the decree of fthe watchers, the decision by the word of gthe holy ones, to the end that the living may know that the Most High mrules the kingdom of men nand gives it to whom he will and osets over it the lowliest of men.

52  jhe has brought down the mighty from their thrones

land exalted those of humble estate;
