Every Knee will Bow

23 By myself I have sworn—
    from my mouth has gone out integrity,
        a promise[a] that won’t be revoked:
‘To me every knee will bow,
    and[b] every tongue will swear.’
24 One will say of me,[c]
    ‘Only in the Lord are victories and might.’
All who raged against him will come[d] to him
    and will be put to shame.
25 In the Lord all the descendants of Israel
    will triumph and make their boast.”
