"I love You, O LORD, my strength."
The LORD is 1my arock and 2my fortress and my 3deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I takerefuge ; My 4shield and the 5horn of my salvation, my 6stronghold.
I call upon the LORD, who is 7worthy to be praised, And I am 8saved from my enemies.
The 9cords of deathencompassed me, And the 10torrents of bungodlinesscterrified me.
The 11cords of dSheolsurrounded me; The snares of deathconfronted me.
In my 12distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help ; He heard my voice13out of His temple, And my 14cry for helpbefore Him came into His ears.
Then the 15earthshook and quaked ; And the 16foundations of the mountains were trembling And were shaken, because He was angry.
8Smokewent up eout of His nostrils, And 17fire from His mouthdevoured ; Coals were kindled by it.
He 18bowed the heavens also, and camedown With thick19darknessunder His feet.
He rode upon a 20cherub and flew ; And He sped upon the 21wings of the wind.
He made22darkness His hidingplace, 23His fcanopyaround Him, Darkness of waters, thickclouds of the skies.
From the 24brightnessbefore Him passed His thickclouds, Hailstones and 25coals of fire.
The LORD also 26thundered in the heavens, And the MostHighuttered His voice, Hailstones and coals of fire.
He 27sent out His arrows, and scattered them, And lightningflashes in abundance, and grouted them.
Then the 28channels of waterappeared, And the foundations of the world were hlaidbare At Your 29rebuke, O LORD, At the blast of the 30breath of Your nostrils.
He 31sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of 32manywaters.
He 33delivered me from my strongenemy, And from those who hated me, for they were 34toomighty for me.
They confronted me in 35the day of my calamity, But 36the LORD was my stay.
He brought me forth also into a 37broadplace ; He rescued me, because38He delighted in me.
The LORD has 39rewarded me according to my righteousness ; According to the 40cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.
For I have 41kept the ways of the LORD, And have 42not wickedlydeparted from my God.
For all43His ordinances were before me, And I did not putaway His 44statutes from me.
I was also i45blameless with Him, And I 46kept myself from my iniquity.
Therefore the LORD has 47recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in His eyes.
With 48the kind You show Yourself kind ; With the jblameless49You show Yourself blameless ;
With the pure You show Yourself 50pure, And with the crooked51You show Yourself kastute.
For You 52save an afflictedpeople, But 53haughtyeyes You abase.
For You 54light my lamp ; The LORD my God55illumines my darkness.
For by You I can l56run upon a troop ; And by my God I can 57leap over a wall.
As for God, His way is m58blameless ; The 59word of the LORD is tried ; He is a 60shield to all who takerefuge in Him.
For 61who is God, but the LORD ? And who is a 62rock, except our God,
The God who 63girds me with strength And nmakes my wayo64blameless ?
He 65makes my feet like hinds' feet, And 66sets me upon my highplaces.
He 67trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can 68bend a bow of bronze.
You have also given me 69the shield of Your salvation, And Your 70righthandupholds me; And 71Your pgentlenessmakes me great.
You 72enlarge my stepsunder me, And my q73feet have not slipped.
I 74pursued my enemies and overtook them, And I did not turnback75until they were consumed.
I shattered them, so that they were 76not able to rise ; They fell77under my feet.
For You have 78girded me with strength for battle ; You have r79subduedunder me those who rose up against me.
You have also made my enemies80turn their backs to me, And I s81destroyed those who hated me.
They cried for help, but there was 82none to save, Even to the LORD, but 83He did not answer them.
Then I beat them fine as the 84dustbefore the wind ; I emptied them out as the mire of the streets.
You have delivered me from the 85contentions of the people ; You have placed me as 86head of the nations ; A 87people whom I have not knownserve me.
As soon as they hear , they obey me; Foreignerst88submit to me.
45Foreigners89fadeaway, And 90cometrembling out of their ufortresses.
The LORD91lives, and blessed be 92my rock ; And exalted be 93the God of my salvation,
The God who 94executesvengeance for me, And 95subduespeoplesunder me.
He 96delivers me from my enemies ; Surely You 97lift me above those who rise up against me; You rescue me from the 98violentman.
49Therefore I will 99givethanks to You among the nations, O LORD, And I will 100singpraises to Your name.
He gives greatv101deliverance to His king, And showslovingkindness to 102His anointed, To David and 103his wdescendantsforever .
