For there is no other god besides you, one who cares for everyone, who could ask you to justify your judgments;

Your strength is the source of your justice and because you are the Lord of all, you can be merciful to everyone.

To those who doubt your sovereign power you show your strength and you confound the insolence of those who ignore it.
