Bible: 2 Samuel 22:35-51
my arms can bend even the strongest bow. 3
your willingness to help enables me to prevail. 6
22:37 You widen my path; 7
my feet 8 do not slip.
22:38 I chase my enemies and destroy them;
I do not turn back until I wipe them out.
22:39 I wipe them out and beat them to death;
they cannot get up;
they fall at my feet.
22:40 You give me strength for battle; 9
you make my foes kneel before me. 10
22:41 You make my enemies retreat; 11
I destroy those who hate me.
they cry out to the
22:43 I grind them as fine as the dust of the ground;
I crush them and stomp on them like clay 15 in the streets.
22:44 You rescue me from a hostile army; 16
you preserve me as a leader of nations;
people over whom I had no authority are now my subjects. 17
22:45 Foreigners are powerless before me; 18
when they hear of my exploits, they submit to me. 19
22:46 Foreigners lose their courage; 20
22:48 The one true God completely vindicates me; 29
he makes nations submit to me. 30
22:49 He delivers me from my enemies; 31
you rescue me from violent men.
22:50 So I will give you thanks, O
I will sing praises to you. 35
22:51 He gives his chosen king magnificent victories; 36
he is faithful to his chosen ruler, 37
to David and to his descendants forever!”
