A Soldier's Psalm
(Psalm 18:27-42, NAPSV)

God, You save the humble people,
and bring down those with haughty looks.
God, You light lamp;
and lighten up the darkness.

By You, can run against a troop,
By You, can leap over a wall.

As for You God, Your way is perfect;
Your Word is proven true;
You are a shield to and all who trust You.
Who is God, except You?
Who is a rock, except You?

It is You who arms with strength,
And keeps on the right path.
You make feet like those of deer,
And set on high places.

You teach hands to make war,
So that can bend a bow of bronze.
You gave the shield of Your salvation;
Your right hand has held up,
Your gentleness has made great.
You enlarged the road under
So feet did not slip.

As a result, has pursued your enemies and overtaken them;
did not turn back until they were destroyed.
has wounded them so severely that they could not get up.
They have fallen under feet.

You have armed with strength for battle;
You have subdued those who rose up against
You have given the necks of your enemies,
Those who hated were destroyed.

They cried out, but there was no one to save them;
Even to You, Lord, but You did not answer them.
Then, beat them as fine as the dust before the wind;
and cast them out like dirt in the streets.
