1 Samuel 10:23-2423Then they ran and took him from there. And when he stood among the people, c he was taller than any of the people from his shoulders upward. 24And Samuel said to all the people, “Do you see him d whom the Lord has chosen? There is none like him among all the people.” And all the people shouted, e “Long live the king!”

in those who i hope in his steadfast love.
Proverbs 31:3030 j Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
