David's Song of Praise

22:1-51pp -- Ps 18:1-50

1 David sang1 to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. 2 He said: "The LORD is my rock,2 my fortress3 and my deliverer;4 3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,5 my shield6 and the horna7 of my salvation. He is my stronghold,8 my refuge and my savior-- from violent men you save me. 4 I call to the LORD, who is worthy9 of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. 5 "The waves10 of death swirled about me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. 6 The cords of the graveb11 coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. 7 In my distress12 I called13 to the LORD; I called out to my God. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came to his ears. 8 "The earth14 trembled and quaked,15 the foundations16 of the heavensc shook; they trembled because he was angry.
