We have a strong city; walls and bulwarks doth He appoint for salvation. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation that keepeth faithfulness may enter in. The mind stayed on Thee Thou keepest in perfect peace; because it trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever, for the Lord is God, an everlasting Rock. For He hath brought down them that dwell on high, the lofty city, laying it low, laying it low even to the ground, bringing it even to the dust. The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
