He trains my hands for battle;1 my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains2 me; your help has made me great.
You provide a broad path3 for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.437
I pursued my enemies5 and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
I crushed them6 so that they could not rise;7 they fell beneath my feet.839
You armed me with strength9 for battle; you humbled my adversaries10 before me.
You made my enemies turn their backs11 in flight, and I destroyed12 my foes.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save them13-- to the LORD, but he did not answer.1442
I beat them as fine as windblown dust;15 I trampled thema like mud in the streets.
You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations.16 People I did not know17 now serve me,
foreigners18 cower before me; as soon as they hear of me, they obey me.
