19 God is not human,(A) that he should lie,(B)
    not a human being, that he should change his mind.(C)
Does he speak and then not act?
    Does he promise(D) and not fulfill?
20 I have received a command to bless;(E)
    he has blessed,(F) and I cannot change it.(G)

21 “No misfortune is seen in Jacob,(H)
    no misery observed[a] in Israel.(I)
The Lord their God is with them;(J)
    the shout of the King(K) is among them.
22 God brought them out of Egypt;(L)
    they have the strength of a wild ox.(M)
23 There is no divination against[b] Jacob,
    no evil omens(N) against[c] Israel.
It will now be said of Jacob
    and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’
