to the pure1 you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.227
You save the humble3 but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.428
You, O LORD, keep my lamp5 burning; my God turns my darkness into light.629
With your help7 I can advance against a troopa; with my God I can scale a wall.
As for God, his way is perfect;8 the word of the LORD is flawless.9 He is a shield10 for all who take refuge11 in him.
For who is God besides the LORD?12 And who is the Rock13 except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength14 and makes my way perfect.1533
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;16 he enables me to stand on the heights.1734
He trains my hands for battle;18 my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains19 me; you stoop down to make me great.
You broaden the path20 beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.21
