18:Title-50pp -- 2Sa 22:1-51

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.= He sang 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. He said:

1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.1 2 The LORD is my rock,2 my fortress3 and my deliverer;4 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.5 He is my shield6 and the horna of my salvation,7 my stronghold. 3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,8 and I am saved from my enemies.9 4 The cords of death10 entangled me; the torrents11 of destruction overwhelmed me. 5 The cords of the graveb coiled around me; the snares of death12 confronted me. 6 In my distress13 I called to the LORD;14 I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice;15 my cry came16 before him, into his ears. 7 The earth trembled17 and quaked,18 and the foundations of the mountains shook;19 they trembled because he was angry.20 8 Smoke rose from his nostrils;21 consuming fire22 came from his mouth, burning coals23 blazed out of it. 9 He parted the heavens and came down;24 dark clouds25 were under his feet. 10 He mounted the cherubim26 and flew; he soared27 on the wings of the wind.28 11 He made darkness his covering,29 his canopy30 around him-- the dark rain clouds of the sky. 12 Out of the brightness of his presence31 clouds advanced, with hailstones32 and bolts of lightning.33 13 The LORD thundered34 from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.c 14 He shot his arrows35 and scattered [the enemies], great bolts of lightning36 and routed them.37 15 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations38 of the earth laid bare at your rebuke,39 O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.40 16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.41 17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,42 from my foes, who were too strong for me.43 18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,44 but the LORD was my support.45 19 He brought me out into a spacious place;46 he rescued me because he delighted in me.47
