You uncovered your bow, you called for many arrows.1 "Selah" You split the earth with rivers;
the mountains saw you and writhed.2 Torrents of water swept by; the deep roared3 and lifted its waves4 on high.
Sun and moon stood still5 in the heavens at the glint of your flying arrows,6 at the lightning7 of your flashing spear.
In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed8 the nations.
You came out9 to deliver10 your people, to save your anointed11 one. You crushed12 the leader of the land of wickedness, you stripped him from head to foot. "Selah"
With his own spear you pierced his head when his warriors stormed out to scatter us,13 gloating as though about to devour the wretched14 who were in hiding.
You trampled the sea15 with your horses, churning the great waters.1616
I heard and my heart pounded, my lips quivered at the sound; decay crept into my bones, and my legs trembled.17 Yet I will wait patiently18 for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us.
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food,19 though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,2018
yet I will rejoice in the LORD,21 I will be joyful in God my Savior.2219
The Sovereign LORD is my strength;23 he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.24 For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.
