2 Samuel 22:31-51 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
31 This God - how perfect are his deeds, how dependable his words! He is like a shield for all who seek his protection. 32 The Lord alone is God; God alone is our defense. 33 This God is my strong refuge; he makes a my pathway safe. 34 He makes me sure-footed as a deer; 1 he keeps me safe on the mountains. 35 He trains me for battle, so that I can use the strongest bow. 36 O Lord, you protect me and save me; your help has made me great. 37 You have kept me from being captured, and I have never fallen. 38 I pursue my enemies and defeat them; I do not stop until I destroy them. 39 I strike them down, and they cannot rise; they lie defeated before me. 40 You give me strength for the battle and victory over my enemies. 41 You make my enemies run from me; I destroy those who hate me. 42 They look for help, but no one saves them; they call to the Lord, but he does not answer. 43 I crush them, and they become like dust; I trample on them like mud in the streets. 44 You saved me from my rebellious people and maintained my rule over the nations; people I did not know have now become my subjects. 45 Foreigners bow before me; when they hear me, they obey. 46 They lose their courage and come trembling b from their fortresses. 47 The Lord lives! Praise my defender! Proclaim the greatness of the strong God who saves me! 48 He gives me victory over my enemies; he subdues the nations under me 49 and saves me from my foes. O Lord, you give me victory over my enemies and protect me from violent men. 50 And so I praise you among the nations; 2 I sing praises to you. 51 God gives great victories to his king; he shows constant love to the one he has chosen, to David and his descendants forever.
