I pursued my enemies and overtook them;
And I did not turn back until they were consumed.
I shattered them so that they were not able to rise;
They fell [wounded] under my feet.
For You have encircled me with strength for the battle;
You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me [in defeat],
And I silenced and destroyed those who hated me.
They cried for help, but there was no one to save them—
Even to the Lord [they cried], but He did not answer them.
Then I beat them fine as the dust before the wind;
I emptied them out as the dirt of the streets.
