They all lose heart;2 they come trembling3 from their strongholds.446
The LORD lives!5 Praise be to my Rock!6 Exalted be God7 my Savior!847
He is the God who avenges9 me, who subdues nations10 under me,
who saves11 me from my enemies.12 You exalted me above my foes; from violent men13 you rescued me.
Therefore I will praise you among the nations,14 O LORD; I will sing15 praises to your name.1650
He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed,17 to David18 and his descendants forever.19
