Lord, battle with those who battle with me. Fight against those who fight against me.
Pick up the shield and armor. Rise up and help me.
Lift up your spears, both large and small, against those who chase me. Tell me, "I will save you."
Make those who want to kill me be ashamed and disgraced. Make those who plan to harm me turn back and run away.
Make them like chaff blown by the wind as the angel of the Lord forces them away.
Let their road be dark and slippery as the angel of the Lord chases them.
