But God drags away the mighty by his power; though they become established, they have no assurance of life.
They die in an instant, in the middle of the night; the people are shaken and they pass away; the mighty are removed without human hand.
Without inquiry he shatters the mighty and sets up others in their place.
"People cry out under a load of oppression; they plead for relief from the arm of the powerful.
