Strive thou, O Jehovah, with them that strive with me: Fight thou against them that fight against me.
Take hold of shield and buckler, And stand up for my help.
Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that pursue me: Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
Let them be put to shame and brought to dishonor that seek after my soul: Let them be turned back and confounded that devise my hurt.
Let them be as chaff before the wind, And the angel of Jehovah driving [them] on.
Let their way be dark and slippery, And the angel of Jehovah pursuing them.
