Praise be to the LORD my Rock,
who trains my hands for war,
my fingers for battle.
2 He is my loving God and my fortress,
my stronghold and my deliverer,
my shield, in whom I take refuge,
who subdues peoples under me.
God will strengthen, shield, and deliver. His love is refuge during battle – but not a “get out of battle free” card. He trains our fingers and hearts to fight.
