The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness;1 according to the cleanness of my hands2 he has rewarded me.321
For I have kept the ways of the LORD;4 I have not done evil by turning5 from my God.
All his laws are before me;6 I have not turned away from his decrees.
I have been blameless7 before him and have kept myself from sin.
The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness,8 according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
To the faithful9 you show yourself faithful,10 to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
to the pure11 you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.1227
You save the humble13 but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.1428
You, O LORD, keep my lamp15 burning; my God turns my darkness into light.1629
With your help17 I can advance against a troopa; with my God I can scale a wall.
As for God, his way is perfect;18 the word of the LORD is flawless.19 He is a shield20 for all who take refuge21 in him.
For who is God besides the LORD?22 And who is the Rock23 except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength24 and makes my way perfect.2533
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;26 he enables me to stand on the heights.2734
He trains my hands for battle;28 my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains29 me; you stoop down to make me great.
You broaden the path30 beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.3137
I pursued my enemies32 and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
I crushed them33 so that they could not rise;34 they fell beneath my feet.3539
You armed me with strength36 for battle; you made my adversaries bow37 at my feet.
You made my enemies turn their backs38 in flight, and I destroyed39 my foes.
