He trains me for battle, so that I can use the strongest bow.
O Lord, you protect me and save me; your care has made me great, and your power has kept me safe.
You have kept me from being captured, and I have never fallen.
I pursue my enemies and catch them; I do not stop until I destroy them.
I strike them down, and they cannot rise; they lie defeated before me.
You give me strength for the battle and victory over my enemies.
You make my enemies run from me; I destroy those who hate me.
They cry for help, but no one saves them; they call to the Lord, but he does not answer.
I crush them, so that they become like dust which the wind blows away. I trample on them like mud in the streets.
You saved me from a rebellious people and made me ruler over the nations; people I did not know have now become my subjects.
Foreigners bow before me; when they hear me, they obey.
