You broaden the path1 beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.237
I pursued my enemies3 and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
I crushed them4 so that they could not rise;5 they fell beneath my feet.639
You armed me with strength7 for battle; you made my adversaries bow8 at my feet.
You made my enemies turn their backs9 in flight, and I destroyed10 my foes.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save them11-- to the LORD, but he did not answer.1242
I beat them as fine as dust13 borne on the wind; I poured them out like mud in the streets.
You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations;14 people I did not know15 are subject to me.
As soon as they hear me, they obey me; foreigners16 cringe before me.
They all lose heart;17 they come trembling18 from their strongholds.1946
The LORD lives!20 Praise be to my Rock!21 Exalted be God22 my Savior!23
