1 Samuel 2:3-5 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

Do not increase speaking very proud[a] words!
    Let no arrogance go forth from your mouth,
    for Yahweh is a God of knowledge
    whose deeds are not weighed.[b]
The bows of mighty warriors are shattered,
    but those who stumble gird themselves with strength.
Those who were full must hire themselves out for bread,
    but those who are hungry will become fat.
As for the infertile, she will bear seven,
    but she who has many sons withers away.
