For they did not take the land by their sword-- their arm did not bring them victory-- but by Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your face, for You were pleased with them.
For I do not trust in my bow, and my sword does not bring me victory.
He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless.
For while we were still helpless, at the appointed moment, Christ died for the ungodly.
But God, who is abundant in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us,
made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. By grace you are saved!
He also raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavens, in Christ Jesus,
so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace in [His] kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift--
not from works, so that no one can boast.
