You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet.
For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
You have armed me with strength for the battle; you have subdued my enemies under my feet.
You armed me well for this fight, you smashed the upstarts.
For I have been armed by you with strength for the fight: you have made low under me those who come out against me.
For you girded me with strength for the battle; you made my assailants sink under me.
For You have armed me with strength for the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
