To the faithful1 you show yourself faithful,2 to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
to the pure3 you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.427
You save the humble5 but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.628
You, O LORD, keep my lamp7 burning; my God turns my darkness into light.829
With your help9 I can advance against a troopa; with my God I can scale a wall.
As for God, his way is perfect;10 the word of the LORD is flawless.11 He is a shield12 for all who take refuge13 in him.
For who is God besides the LORD?14 And who is the Rock15 except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength16 and makes my way perfect.1733
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;18 he enables me to stand on the heights.1934
He trains my hands for battle;20 my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains21 me; you stoop down to make me great.
