You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
For You save an afflicted people, But haughty eyes You abase.
You rescue those who are humble, but you humiliate the proud.
You take the side of the down-and-out, But the stuck-up you take down a peg.
For you are the saviour of those who are in trouble; but eyes full of pride will be made low.
For you deliver a humble people, but the haughty eyes you bring down.
For You will save the humble people, But will bring down haughty looks.
