KJV 31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried : he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. NIV 31 "As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. KJV 32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? NIV 32 For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? KJV 33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect. NIV 33 It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. KJV 34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places. NIV 34 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. KJV 35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. NIV 35 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. KJV 36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great . NIV 36 You give me your shield of victory; you stoop down to make me great. KJV 37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip . NIV 37 You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn. KJV 38 I have pursued mine enemies , and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them. NIV 38 "I pursued my enemies and crushed them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. KJV 39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise : yea, they are fallen under my feet. NIV 39 I crushed them completely, and they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. KJV 40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me. NIV 40 You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet. KJV 41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies , that I might destroy them that hate me. NIV 41 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes. KJV 42 They looked , but there was none to save ; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not. NIV 42 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them-- to the LORD, but he did not answer. KJV 43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad . NIV 43 I beat them as fine as the dust of the earth; I pounded and trampled them like mud in the streets. KJV 44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me. NIV 44 "You have delivered me from the attacks of my people; you have preserved me as the head of nations. People I did not know are subject to me, KJV 45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear , they shall be obedient unto me. NIV 45 and foreigners come cringing to me; as soon as they hear me, they obey me. KJV 46 Strangers shall fade away , and they shall be afraid out of their close places. NIV 46 They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds. KJV 47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. NIV 47 "The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior! KJV 48 It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me, NIV 48 He is the God who avenges me, who puts the nations under me, KJV 49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies : thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. NIV 49 who sets me free from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from violent men you rescued me. KJV 50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
