As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Yahweh is tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him.
For who is God, save Yahweh? Who is a rock, save our God?
God is my strong fortress; He guides the perfect in his way.
He makes his feet like hinds' [feet], Sets me on my high places.
He teaches my hands to war, So that my arms do bend a bow of brass.
You have also given me the shield of your salvation; Your gentleness has made me great.
You have enlarged my steps under me; My feet have not slipped.
I have pursued my enemies, and destroyed them; Neither did I turn again until they were consumed.
I have consumed them, and struck them through, so that they can't arise: Yes, they are fallen under my feet.
For you have girded me with strength to the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, That I might cut off those who hate me.
They looked, but there was none to save; Even to Yahweh, but he didn't answer them.
Then did I beat them small as the dust of the earth, I did crush them as the mire of the streets, and did spread them abroad.
You also have delivered me from the strivings of my people; You have kept me to be the head of the nations: A people whom I have not known shall serve me.
The foreigners shall submit themselves to me: As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me.
The foreigners shall fade away, Shall come trembling out of their close places.
Yahweh lives; Blessed be my rock; Exalted be God, the rock of my salvation,
Even the God who executes vengeance for me, Who brings down peoples under me,
Who brings me forth from my enemies: Yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me; You deliver me from the violent man.
Therefore I will give thanks to you, Yahweh, among the nations, Will sing praises to your name.
Great deliverance gives he to his king, Shows lovingkindness to his anointed, To David and to his seed, forevermore.
