1 Samuel 2:1-10
1 And Hannah prayed and said:
“My heart rejoices in the Lord;
My horn is exalted in the Lord.
I smile at my enemies,
Because I rejoice in Your salvation.
2 “No one is holy like the Lord,
For there is none besides You,
Nor is there any rock like our God.
3 “Talk no more so very proudly;
Let no arrogance come from your mouth,
For the Lord is the God of knowledge;
And by Him actions are weighed.
4 “The bows of the mighty men are broken,
And those who stumbled are girded with strength.
5 Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread,
And the hungry have ceased to hunger.
Even the barren has borne seven,
And she who has many children has become feeble.
6 “The Lord kills and makes alive;
He brings down to the grave and brings up.
7 The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
He brings low and lifts up.
8 He raises the poor from the dust
And lifts the beggar from the ash heap,
To set them among princes
And make them inherit the throne of glory.
“For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,
And He has set the world upon them.
9 He will guard the feet of His saints,
But the wicked shall be silent in darkness.
“For by strength no man shall prevail.
10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces;
From heaven He will thunder against them.
The Lord will judge the ends of the earth.
“He will give strength to His king,
And exalt the [c]horn of His anointed.”
1 哈拿禱告說：「我的心因耶和華快樂，我的角因耶和華高舉，我的口向仇敵張開，我因耶和華的救恩歡欣！ 2 只有耶和華為聖，除他以外沒有可比的，也沒有磐石像我們的神。 3 人不要誇口說驕傲的話，也不要出狂妄的言語；因耶和華是大有智識的神，人的行為被他衡量。 4 勇士的弓都已折斷，跌倒的人以力量束腰。 5 素來飽足的，反做用人求食；飢餓的，再不飢餓。不生育的，生了七個兒子；多有兒女的，反倒衰微。 6 耶和華使人死，也使人活；使人下陰間，也使人往上升。 7 他使人貧窮，也使人富足；使人卑微，也使人高貴。 8 他從灰塵裡抬舉貧寒人，從糞堆中提拔窮乏人，使他們與王子同坐，得著榮耀的座位。地的柱子屬於耶和華，他將世界立在其上。 9 他必保護聖民的腳步，使惡人在黑暗中寂然不動，人都不能靠力量得勝。 10 與耶和華爭競的必被打碎，耶和華必從天上以雷攻擊他，必審判地極的人；將力量賜予所立的王，高舉受膏者的角。」
