I crushed them1 so that they could not rise;2 they fell beneath my feet.339
You armed me with strength4 for battle; you made my adversaries bow5 at my feet.
You made my enemies turn their backs6 in flight, and I destroyed7 my foes.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save them8-- to the LORD, but he did not answer.942
I beat them as fine as dust10 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;11 people I did not know12 are subject to me.
As soon as they hear me, they obey me; foreigners13 cringe before me.
They all lose heart;14 they come trembling15 from their strongholds.1646
The LORD lives!17 Praise be to my Rock!18 Exalted be God19 my Savior!2047
He is the God who avenges21 me, who subdues nations22 under me,
who saves23 me from my enemies.24 You exalted me above my foes; from violent men25 you rescued me.
