1 Samuel 2:7
The LORD makes poor, and makes rich: he brings low, and lifts up.
Hannah's Prayer of Thanksgiving

1And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoices in the LORD, my horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over my enemies; because I rejoice in your salvation. 2There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside you: neither is there any rock like our God. 3Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogance come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed. 4The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength. 5They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren has born seven; and she that has many children is waxed feeble. 6The LORD kills, and makes alive: he brings down to the grave, and brings up. 7The LORD makes poor, and makes rich: he brings low, and lifts up. 8He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he has set the world on them. 9He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. 10The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder on them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength to his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed. 11And Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. And the child did minister to the LORD before Eli the priest.
