19 God is not a man, that he should lie,
    nor a son of man, that he should repent.
Has he said, and he won’t do it?
    Or has he spoken, and he won’t make it good?
20 Behold, I have received a command to bless.
    He has blessed, and I can’t reverse it.
21 He has not seen iniquity in Jacob.
    Neither has he seen perverseness in Israel.
Yahweh his God is with him.
    The shout of a king is among them.
