As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the Lord is proven;
He is a shield to all
who take refuge in Him.
For who is God, except the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way blameless.
He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
And sets me upon my high places.
He trains my hands for battle,
So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You have also given me the shield of Your salvation,
Your right hand has held me up;
Your gentleness has made me great.
You enlarged my path under me,
So my feet did not slip.
The Lord lives!
Blessed be my Rock!
Let the God of my salvation be exalted.
~ From Psalm 18
