“For who is God,

This God
is my strong refuge

so that my arms can bend a bow
of bronze.

for my steps

did not turn back
until they were consumed.

I thrust them through,
so that they did not rise;

with strength
for the battle;
you made those
who rise
against me
sink under me.

turn their backs
to me,
those who hated me,
I destroyed them.
They looked,
there was none to save;
they cried
to the Lord,
he did not answer them.

fine as the dust
of the earth;
I crushed them
stamped them down
like the mire
of the streets.
“You delivered me
from strife
with my people;
you kept me
as the head
of the nations;

served me.
Foreigners came cringing
to me;
as soon as they heard
of me,
they obeyed me.
lost heart
came trembling
out of their fortresses.

under me,

from my enemies;

from men
of violence.
