- Blessed be the Lord my strength, which [a]teacheth mine hands to fight, and my fingers to battle.
He is my goodness and my fortress, my tower and [b]my deliverer, my shield and in him I trust, [c]which subdueth my people under me.
(a) Who of a poor shepherd hath made me a valiant warrior and mighty conqueror.
(b) Hebrew, my deliverer unto me: for the Prophet cannot satisfy himself with any words.
(c) He confesseth that neither by his own authority, power or policy his kingdom was quiet, but by the secret grace of God.
