2 Samuel 22:31-51 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
31 God, his way is immaculate, the word of the Lord is tried by fire: he is the shield of all that trust in him. 32 Who is God but the Lord: and who is strong but our God? 33 God who hath girded me with strength, and made my way perfect. 34 Making my feet like the feet of harts, and setting me upon my high places. 35 He teacheth my hands to war: and maketh my arms like a bow of brass. 36 Thou hast given me the shield of my salvation: and thy mildness hath multiplied me. 37 Thou shalt enlarge my steps under me: and my ankles shall not fail. 38 I will pursue after my enemies, and crush them: and will not return again till I consume them. 39 I will consume them and break them in pieces, so that they shall not rise: they shall fall under my feet. 40 Thou hast girded me with strength to battle: thou hast made them that resisted me to bow under me. 41 My enemies thou hast made to turn their back to me: them that hated me, and I shall destroy them. 42 They shall cry, and there shall be none to save: to the Lord, and he shall not hear them. 43 I shall beat them as small as the dust of the earth: I shall crush them and spread them abroad like the mire of the streets. 44 Thou wilt save me from the contradictions of my people: thou wilt keep me to be the head of the Gentiles: the people which I know not, shall serve me, 45 The sons of the stranger will resist me, at the hearing of the ear they will obey me. 46 The strangers are melted away, and shall be straitened in their distresses. 47 The Lord liveth, and my God is blessed: and the strong God of my salvation shall be exalted: 48 God who giveth me revenge, and bringest down people under me, 49 Who bringest me forth from my enemies, and liftest me up from them that resist me: from the wicked man thou shalt deliver me. 50 Therefore will I give thanks to thee, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and will sing to thy name. 51 Giving great salvation to his king, and shewing mercy to David his anointed, and to his seed for ever.
