For promotion [cometh] neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
But God [is] the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
That he may set [him] with princes, [even] with the princes of his people.
