For who is God except the LORD ? Who but our God is a solid rock?
God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect.
He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.
You have given me your shield of victory; your help has made me great.

and delivers me from my enemies. You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies; you save me from violent opponents.

You give great victories to your king; you show unfailing love to your anointed, to David and all his descendants forever.”
