Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
A light to lighten the Gentiles, and
the glory of thy people Israel.
thou, O Israel: who
like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who
the sword of thy excellency!
and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee;
and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
And what one nation in the earth is like thy people,
like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt,
the nations and their gods?
For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel
a people unto thee for ever: and thou, LORD, art become their God.
O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not;
and in the night season, and am not silent.
that inhabitest the praises of Israel
