The counsel of HaShem standeth for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.
Happy is the nation whose G-d is HaShem; the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.
HaShem looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men;
From the place of His habitation He looketh intently upon all the inhabitants of the earth;
He that fashioneth the hearts of them all, that considereth all their doings.
A king is not saved by the multitude of a host; a mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain thing for safety; neither doth it afford escape by its great strength.
Behold, the eye of HaShem is toward them that fear Him, toward them that wait for His mercy;
To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul hath waited for HaShem; He is our help and our shield.
For in Him doth our heart rejoice, because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Thy mercy, O HaShem, be upon us, according as we have waited for Thee.
