1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord, who spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said: I will love You, O Lord, my strength. 1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies. 3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.
4 The pangs of death surrounded me, And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. 4 The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5 The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me. 5 The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me.
6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears. 6 In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.
7 Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry. 7 The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.
