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.
He delivers me from my enemies;
Surely You lift me above those who rise up against me;
You rescue me from the violent man.
Therefore, I will give thanks to You among the nations,
O Lord, and I will sing praises to Your name.
He gives great deliverance to His king.
And shows lovingkindness to His anointed,
To Dave and his descendants forever.
(Psalm 18:46-50 NASB)
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 girded me with strength for battle;
You have subdued under me those who rose up against 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 none to save, Even to the Lord, but He did not answer them.
Then I beat them out as the mire of the streets.
You have delivered 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, the obey me;
Foreigners submit to me.
Foreigners fade away,
And come trembling out of their fortresses.
(Psalm 18:37-45 NASB)
