1 Samuel 2:8-10 Modern English Version (MEV)

He raises up the poor out of the dust
    and lifts up the oppressed from the dunghill
to make them sit with princes
    and inherit a throne of glory.

“For the pillars of the earth belong to the Lord,
    and He has set the world upon them.
He will guard the feet of His saints,
    but the wicked will be silent in darkness.

“For by strength shall no man prevail.
10     The adversaries of the Lord will be broken to pieces;
He will thunder against them out of heaven.
    The Lord will judge the ends of the earth.

“He will give strength to His king
    and exalt the horn of His anointed.”

1 Samuel 2:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes
    and has them inherit a throne of honor.

“For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s;
    on them he has set the world.
He will guard the feet of his faithful servants,
    but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness.

“It is not by strength that one prevails;
10     those who oppose the Lord will be broken.
The Most High will thunder from heaven;
    the Lord will judge the ends of the earth.

“He will give strength to his king
    and exalt the horn of his anointed.”
