12 They surrounded me like bees but were extinguished [as quickly] as a fire in thorns; in the name of ADONAI I cut them down. 12 They swarmed around me like bees, but they died out as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the LORD I cut them off.
13 You pushed me hard to make me fall, but ADONAI helped me. 13 I was pushed back and about to fall, but the LORD helped me.

16 ADONAI's right hand is raised in triumph! ADONAI's right hand struck powerfully!" 16 The LORD's right hand is lifted high; the LORD's right hand has done mighty things!"
17 I will not die; no, I will live and proclaim the great deeds of Yah! 17 I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done.
18 Yah disciplined me severely, but did not hand me over to death. 18 The LORD has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.
19 Open the gates of righteousness for me; I will enter them and thank Yah. 19 Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.
