For Thou dost light my lamp; HaShem my G-d doth lighten my darkness.
For by Thee I run upon a troop; and by my G-d do I scale a wall.
As for G-d, His way is perfect; the word of HaShem is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in Him.
For who is G-d, save HaShem? And who is a Rock, except our G-d?
The G-d that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way straight;
Who maketh my feet like hinds', and setteth me upon my high places;
Who traineth my hands for war, so that mine arms do bend a bow of brass.
Thou hast also given me Thy shield of salvation, and Thy right hand hath holden me up; and Thy condescension hath made me great.
Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped.
I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them; neither did I turn back till they were consumed.
I have smitten them through, so that they are not able to rise; they are fallen under my feet.
For Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle; Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
Thou hast also made mine enemies turn their backs unto me, and I did cut off them that hate me.
They cried, but there was none to save; even unto HaShem, but He answered them not.
Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind; I did cast them out as the mire of the streets.
Thou hast delivered me from the contentions of the people; Thou hast made me the head of the nations; a people whom I have not known serve me.
As soon as they hear of me, they obey me; the sons of the stranger dwindle away before me.
The sons of the stranger fade away, and come trembling out of their close places.
HaShem liveth, and blessed be my Rock; and exalted be the G-d of my salvation;
Even the G-d that executeth vengeance for me, and subdueth peoples under me.
He delivereth me from mine enemies; yea, Thou liftest me up above them that rise up against me; Thou deliverest me from the violent man.
Therefore I will give thanks unto Thee, O HaShem, among the nations, and will sing praises unto Thy name.
Great salvation giveth He to His king; and showeth mercy to His anointed, to David and to his seed, for evermore.
