And kept Your covenant.

And with the choice things of the everlasting hills,
16 And with the choice things of the earth and its fullness,
And the favor of R1115 Him who dwelt in the bush.

And to the crown of the head of the one distinguished among his brothers.

And his horns are the horns of the R1116 wild ox;

And R1138 underneath are the everlasting arms;
And R1139 He drove out the enemy from before you,
And R1140 said, `Destroy!'

The R1142 fountain of Jacob secluded,
In R1143 a land of grain and new wine;

29 "Blessed R1145 are you, O Israel;
Who R1146 is like you, a people saved by the LORD,
Who R1147 is the shield of your help
And R1148 the sword of your majesty!
So R1149 your enemies will cringe before you,
And R1150 you will tread upon their high places."
