He parted the heavens and came down;1 dark clouds2 were under his feet.
He mounted the cherubim3 and flew; he soared4 on the wings of the wind.511
He made darkness his covering,6 his canopy7 around him-- the dark rain clouds of the sky.
Out of the brightness of his presence8 clouds advanced, with hailstones9 and bolts of lightning.1013
The LORD thundered11 from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.a14
He shot his arrows12 and scattered [the enemies], great bolts of lightning13 and routed them.1415
The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations15 of the earth laid bare at your rebuke,16 O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.1716
He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.1817
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,19 from my foes, who were too strong for me.2018
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,21 but the LORD was my support.2219
He brought me out into a spacious place;23 he rescued me because he delighted in me.24
