done wonders; Your counsels of old are steadfast faithfulness.
2 For You have made a city into a heap; a fortified city into a ruin; a palace of strangers

3 Therefore the strong people glorify You; the city of the ruthless nations shall fear You.
4 For You are a refuge to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter

11 And He shall spread out His hands in their midst, as he who swims strokes to swim.
And He will bring down their pride along with the deceit of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of your walls He will lay low, bring down to the
ground, to the dust.
