With your help1 I can advance against a troopa; with my God I can scale a wall.
As for God, his way is perfect;2 the word of the LORD is flawless.3 He is a shield4 for all who take refuge5 in him.
For who is God besides the LORD?6 And who is the Rock7 except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength8 and makes my way perfect.933
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;10 he enables me to stand on the heights.1134
He trains my hands for battle;12 my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains13 me; you stoop down to make me great.
You broaden the path14 beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.1537
I pursued my enemies16 and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
I crushed them17 so that they could not rise;18 they fell beneath my feet.1939
You armed me with strength20 for battle; you made my adversaries bow21 at my feet.
You made my enemies turn their backs22 in flight, and I destroyed23 my foes.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save them24-- to the LORD, but he did not answer.2542
I beat them as fine as dust26 borne on the wind; I poured them out like mud in the streets.
You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations;27 people I did not know28 are subject to me.
As soon as they hear me, they obey me; foreigners29 cringe before me.
They all lose heart;30 they come trembling31 from their strongholds.3246
The LORD lives!33 Praise be to my Rock!34 Exalted be God35 my Savior!3647
He is the God who avenges37 me, who subdues nations38 under me,
who saves39 me from my enemies.40 You exalted me above my foes; from violent men41 you rescued me.
Therefore I will praise you among the nations,42 O LORD; I will sing43 praises to your name.4450
He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed,45 to David46 and his descendants forever.47
