He 1trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand 2supported me, and your 3gentleness made me great.
You 4gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.
I pursued my enemies and overtook them, and did not turn back till they were consumed.
I thrust them through, so that they were not able to rise; they fell under my feet.
For you equipped me with strength for the battle; you made those who rise against me sink under me.
You made my enemies 5turn their backs to me,a and those who hated me I destroyed.
416They cried for help, but there was none to save; they cried to the LORD, but he did not answer them.
I beat them fine as 7dust before the wind; I cast them out like 8the mire of the streets.
You delivered me from 9strife with the people; you made me 10the head of the nations; 11people whom I had not known served me.
As soon as they heard of me they obeyed me; 12foreigners 13came cringing to me.
