And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
And he hath put a new song in my mouth,even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."
Psalm 40: 1-3
