The righteous will confider this, and rejoice and the mouth of all wickedness shall be stopped.

So when they cry unto the Lord in their trouble: he delivereth them out of their diftrefs.

Whofo is wife will ponder thefe things: and they fhall understand the loving kindness of the Lord.

The Lord hath wrought: a mighty falvation for us.

We gat not this by our own fword, neither was it our own arm that faved us: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadft a favour unto us.
