He made darkness his covering,1 his canopy2 around him-- the dark rain clouds of the sky.
Out of the brightness of his presence3 clouds advanced, with hailstones4 and bolts of lightning.513
The LORD thundered6 from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.a14
He shot his arrows7 and scattered [the enemies], great bolts of lightning8 and routed them.915
The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations10 of the earth laid bare at your rebuke,11 O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.1216
He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.1317
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,14 from my foes, who were too strong for me.1518
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,16 but the LORD was my support.1719
He brought me out into a spacious place;18 he rescued me because he delighted in me.1920
The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness;20 according to the cleanness of my hands21 he has rewarded me.2221
For I have kept the ways of the LORD;23 I have not done evil by turning24 from my God.
