The LORD is their strength, And He is a saving defense to His anointed.
And all the horns of the wicked He will cut off, But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.
He has given freely to the poor, His righteousness endures forever; His horn will be exalted in honor.
And He has lifted up a horn for His people, Praise for all His godly ones; Even for the sons of Israel, a people near to Him. Praise the LORD!
