"As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried; He is a buckler to all them that trust in Him.
"For who is God, save the LORD? And who is a rock, save our God?
God is my strength and power, and He maketh my way perfect.
He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation, and Thy gentleness hath made me great.
Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, so that my feet did not slip.
I have pursued mine enemies and destroyed them, and turned not again until I had consumed them.
And I have consumed them and wounded them, that they could not arise; yea, they are fallen under my feet.
For Thou hast girded me with strength to battle; them that rose up against me hast Thou subdued under me.
Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.
They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but He answered them not.
Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth; I stamped them as the mire of the street and spread them abroad.
"Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people; Thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen; a people whom I knew not shall serve me.
Strangers shall submit themselves unto me; as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.
Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their secret places.
"The LORD liveth! And blessed be my Rock! And exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation!
It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me,
and that bringeth me forth from mine enemies. Thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me; Thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
Therefore I will give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto Thy name.
He is the tower of salvation for His king, and showeth mercy to His anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore."
