"To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
to the pure1 you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.228
You save the humble,3 but your eyes are on the haughty4 to bring them low.529
You are my lamp,6 O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troopa; with my God I can scale a wall.
"As for God, his way is perfect;7 the word of the LORD is flawless.8 He is a shield9 for all who take refuge in him.
For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock10 except our God?1133
It is God who arms me with strengthb and makes my way perfect.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;12 he enables me to stand on the heights.1335
He trains my hands14 for battle; my arms can bend a bow15 of bronze.
You give me your shield16 of victory; you stoop down to make me great.
