He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by my arms.
Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath held me up and thy gentleness hath made me great.
Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
I have pursued my enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they have fallen under my feet.
For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
Thou hast also given me the necks of my enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
They cried, but [there was] none to save [them]: [even] to the LORD, but he answered them not.
Then I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; [and] thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people [whom] I have not known shall serve me.
As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves to me.
