May 30: God is Israel’s Protector

Psalm 18:31-40

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 perfect.

He makes my feet like the feet of deer; 
and sets me on my high places.

He teaches my hands to make war, 
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.

I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them; 
neither did I turn back again till they were destroyed.

I have wounded them, 
so that they could not rise; 
they have fallen under my feet.

For You have armed me with strength for the battle; 
You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.

You have also given me the necks of my enemies, 
so that I destroyed those who hated me.
