37 I pursued my enemies(A) and overtook them;
    I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
38 I crushed them(B) so that they could not rise;(C)
    they fell beneath my feet.(D)
39 You armed me with strength(E) for battle;
    you humbled my adversaries(F) before me.
40 You made my enemies turn their backs(G) in flight,
    and I destroyed(H) my foes.
41 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them(I)
    to the Lord, but he did not answer.(J)
42 I beat them as fine as windblown dust;(K)
    I trampled them[a] like mud in the streets.
