Assumption Of The Blessed
17 All the people were greatly
astonished. They bowed down and worshiped God, saying with one
accord, "Blessed are You, our God, who today have brought to
nought the enemies of Your people." 18 Then
Uzziah said to her: "Blessed are you, daughter, by the Most
High God, above all the women on earth; and blessed be the Lord
God, the Creator of Heaven and earth, who guided your blow at the
head of the chief of our enemies.
Your deed of hope will never be forgotten by those who tell of the
might of God. 20 May God make this redound to your
everlasting honor, rewarding you with blessings, because you
risked your life when your people were being oppressed, and you
averted our disaster, walking uprightly before our God." And
all the people answered, "Amen! Amen!"
When they had visited her, all with one accord blessed her,
saying: "You are the glory of Jerusalem, the surpassing joy
of Israel; You are the splendid boast of our people. 10
With your own hand you have done all this; You have done good to
Israel, and God is pleased with what you have wrought. May you be
blessed by the Lord Almighty forever and ever!" And all the
people answered, "Amen!"
45: 11 The
King is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for He is your lord.
12 The Daughter of Tyre will come with a gift,
men of wealth will seek your favor. 13 All
glorious is the princess within her chamber; her gown is
interwoven with gold. 14 In embroidered
garments she is led to the King; her virgin companions follow her
and are brought to you. 15 They are led in with
joy and gladness; they enter the palace of the King. 16 Your
sons will take the place of your fathers; you will make them
princes throughout the land. 17 I will
perpetuate your memory through all generations; therefore the
nations will call you blessed for ever and ever.
