(A)It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    (B)than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    (C)than to trust in princes.

10 (D)All nations surrounded me;
    in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
11 They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side;
    in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
12 (E)They surrounded me like bees;
    they went out like (F)a fire among thorns;
    in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
13 I was (G)pushed hard,[a] so that I was falling,
    but the Lord helped me.

14 The Lord is my strength and my song;
    (H)he has become my salvation.
