  10. God causes His enemies to flee (vv. 11-14)
  11. God frees the captives and dwells among them (vv. 15-18)
  12. God bears His children's burdens (v. 19)
  13. God alone can cause us to escape death (v. 20)
  14. God shatters His enemies (vv. 21-23)
  15. God is King (vv. 24-25)
  16. God is the fountain of Israel (vv. 26-27)
