Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation; Thy right hand hath held me up, and Thy gentleness hath made me great.
Thou hast enlarged my path under me, that my feet did not slip.
I have pursued mine enemies and overtaken them; neither did I turn back until 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 for the battle; Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.
They cried, but there was none to save them, even unto the LORD, but He answered them not.
Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind; I did 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 unto me.
The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
