He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered? If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?

How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

The Lord is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed. The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.
