The LORD looks from heaven; he beholds all the sons of men.
From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
He fashions their hearts alike; he considers all their works.
There is no king saved by the multitude of a host:
a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
A horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the LORD:
he is our help and our shield.
