1 Samuel 2:7-8

Context

2:7 The Lord impoverishes and makes wealthy;

he humbles and he exalts.

2:8 He lifts the weak 1  from the dust;

he raises 2  the poor from the ash heap

to seat them with princes

and to bestow on them an honored position. 3 

The foundations of the earth belong to the Lord,

and he has placed the world on them.

1 tn Or “lowly”; Heb “insignificant.”

2 tn The imperfect verbal form, which is parallel to the participle in the preceding line, is best understood here as indicating what typically happens.

3 tn Heb “a seat of honor.”
