New Living Translation:
“My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side!”
King James Version:
“When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: This I know; for God is for me.”
Contemporary English Version:
“When I pray, Lord God, my enemies will retreat, because I know for certain that you are with me.”
“I know that when l call for help, my enemies will turn and run. I know that because God is with me!”
Beloved, this verse of the Bible today expresses strong confidence in prayer. Great is the strength of prayer; the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much against their enemies: when Moses lifted up his hands, Israel prevailed: Hezekiah prayed and God heard him, Samson and a host of others prayed and were not disappointed. The only thing you need to do is to call on God for help, you don’t have anything to do with your enemies, don’t be afraid of them, cry/call on God to secure the overthrow of them all. All powers in heavens and the earth belongs to God and He has power to answer prayers. As a child of God, have this assurance that God is for you and when you pray, know that your enemies are conquered because God is always on your side, and He is greater than they; He will make them turn back from you. Put your confidence in God, let Him be your guide from now even unto death.
