God's Deliverance of His People

2 LORD, I have 1heard the report about You and I 2fear. O LORD, 3revive 4Your work in the midst of the years, In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember 5mercy.
3 God comes from 6Teman, And the Holy One from Mount 7Paran. Selah. His 8splendor covers the heavens, And the 9earth is full of His praise.
4 His 10radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, And there is the hiding of His 11power.
7 I saw the tents of Cushan under 16distress, The tent curtains of the land of 17Midian were trembling.
8 Did the LORD rage against the 18rivers, Or was Your anger against the rivers, Or was Your wrath against the 19sea, That You 20rode on Your horses, On Your 21chariots of salvation?
9 Your 22bow was made bare *, The rods of chastisement were sworn. Selah. You 23cleaved the earth with rivers.
10 The mountains saw You and quaked; The downpour of waters swept by. The deep 24uttered forth its voice, It lifted high its hands.
11 25Sun and moon stood in their places; They went away at the 26light of Your arrows, At the radiance of Your gleaming spear.
12 In indignation You 27marched through the earth; In anger You 28trampled the nations.
13 You went forth for the 29salvation of Your people, For the salvation of Your 30anointed. You struck the 31head of the house of the evil To lay him open from thigh to neck. Selah.
14 You pierced with his 32own spears The head of his throngs. They 33stormed in to scatter us; Their exultation was like those Who 34devour the oppressed in secret.
15 You 35trampled on the sea with Your horses, On the 36surge of many waters.
16 I heard and my inward parts 37trembled, At the sound my lips quivered. Decay enters my 38bones, And in my place I tremble. Because I must 39wait quietly for the day of distress, For the 40people to arise who will invade us.
17 Though the 41fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the 42olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the 43flock should be cut off from the fold And there be 44no cattle in the stalls,
18 Yet I will 45exult in the LORD, I will 46rejoice in the 47God of my salvation.
19 The Lord GOD is my 48strength, And 49He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my 50high places. For the choir director, on my stringed instruments.
