10 The Lord (A)brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
    he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11 (B)The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
    the plans of his heart to all generations.
12 (C)Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people whom he has (D)chosen as his heritage!

13 The Lord (E)looks down from heaven;
    he sees all the children of man;
14 from (F)where he sits enthroned he (G)looks out
    on all the inhabitants of the earth,
15 he who fashions the hearts of them all
    and observes all their deeds.
16 (H)The king is not saved by his great army;
    a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
17 (I)The war horse is a false hope for salvation,
    and by its great might it cannot rescue.
