10 All the nations surrounded me,
    but in the name of the Lord I cut them down.(A)
11 They surrounded me(B) on every side,(C)
    but in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
12 They swarmed around me like bees,(D)
    but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns;(E)
    in the name of the Lord I cut them down.(F)
13 I was pushed back and about to fall,
    but the Lord helped me.(G)
14 The Lord is my strength(H) and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.(I)

15 Shouts of joy(J) and victory
    resound in the tents of the righteous:
“The Lord’s right hand(K) has done mighty things!(L)
16     The Lord’s right hand is lifted high;
    the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”
17 I will not die(M) but live,
    and will proclaim(N) what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has chastened(O) me severely,
    but he has not given me over to death.(P)
