19 God is not a man who lies,
or a son of man who changes His mind.
Does He speak and not act,
or promise and not fulfill?(A)
20 I have indeed received a command to bless;
since He has blessed,[a] I cannot change it.
21 He considers no disaster for Jacob;
He sees no trouble for Israel.[b]
The Lord their God is with them,(B)
and there is rejoicing over the King among them.
