You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great.
You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped.
I pursued my enemies and overtook them, And I did not turn back until they were consumed.
I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; They fell under my feet.
For You have encircled me with strength for battle; You have forced those who rose up against me to bow down under me.
You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, And I destroyed those who hated me.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save, They cried
to the LORD, but He did not answer them.
Then I beat them fine like the dust before the wind; I emptied them out like the mud of the streets.
You have rescued me from the contentions of the people; You have placed me as head of the nations; A people whom I have not known serve me.
As soon as they hear, they obey me; Foreigners pretend to obey me.
Foreigners lose heart, And come trembling out of their fortresses.
The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation,
The God who executes vengeance for me, And subdues peoples under me.
