The LORD is my rock,1 my fortress2 and my deliverer;3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.4 He is my shield5 and the horna of my salvation,6 my stronghold.
I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,7 and I am saved from my enemies.84
The cords of death9 entangled me; the torrents10 of destruction overwhelmed me.
The cords of the graveb coiled around me; the snares of death11 confronted me.
