YLT 1 To the Overseer. -- By a servant of Jehovah, by David, who hath spoken to Jehovah the words of this song in the day Jehovah delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul, and he saith: -- I love Thee, O Jehovah, my strength. NIV 1 I love you, O LORD, my strength. YLT 2 Jehovah [is] my rock, and my bulwark, And my deliverer, My God [is] my rock, I trust in Him: My shield, and a horn of my salvation, My high tower. NIV 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. YLT 3 The `Praised One' I call Jehovah, And from my enemies I am saved. NIV 3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. YLT 4 Compassed me have cords of death, And streams of the worthless make me afraid. NIV 4 The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. YLT 5 Cords of Sheol have surrounded me, Before me have been snares of death. NIV 5 The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. YLT 6 In mine adversity I call Jehovah, And unto my God I cry. He heareth from His temple my voice, And My cry before Him cometh into His ears. NIV 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. YLT 7 And shake and tremble doth the earth, And foundations of hills are troubled, And they shake -- because He hath wrath. NIV 7 The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. YLT 8 Gone up hath smoke by His nostrils, And fire from His mouth consumeth, Coals have been kindled by it. NIV 8 Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. YLT 9 And He inclineth the heavens, and cometh down, And thick darkness [is] under His feet. NIV 9 He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. YLT 10 And He rideth on a cherub, and doth fly, And He flieth on wings of wind. NIV 10 He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. YLT 11 He maketh darkness His secret place, Round about Him His tabernacle, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies. NIV 11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him-- the dark rain clouds of the sky. YLT 12 From the brightness over-against Him His thick clouds have passed on, Hail and coals of fire. NIV 12 Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. YLT 13 And thunder in the heavens doth Jehovah, And the Most High giveth forth His voice, Hail and coals of fire. NIV 13 The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. YLT 14 And He sendeth His arrows and scattereth them, And much lightning, and crusheth them. NIV 14 He shot his arrows and scattered [the enemies], great bolts of lightning and routed them. YLT 15 And seen are the streams of waters, And revealed are foundations of the earth. From Thy rebuke, O Jehovah, From the breath of the spirit of Thine anger. NIV 15 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.
