23 With bitterness archers attacked him; they shot at him with hostility.
24 But his bow remained steady, his strong arms stayeda limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
25 because of your father’s God, who helps you, because of the Almighty,b who blesses you with blessings of the skies above, blessings of the deep springs below, blessings of the breast and womb.
