And David made a song to the Lord in these words, on the day when the Lord made him free from the hands of all his haters, and from the hand of Saul:
And he said, The Lord is my Rock, my walled town, and my saviour, even mine;
My God, my Rock, in him will I put my faith; my breastplate, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my safe place; my saviour, who keeps me safe from the violent man.
I will send up my cry to the Lord, who is to be praised; so will I be made safe from those who are against me.
For the waves of death came round me, and the seas of evil put me in fear;
The cords of hell were round me: the nets of death came on me.
In my trouble my voice went up to the Lord, and my cry to my God: my voice came to his hearing in his holy Temple, and my prayer came to his ears.
Then the earth was moved with a violent shock; the bases of heaven were moved and shaking, because he was angry.
There went up a smoke from his nose, and a fire of destruction from his mouth: coals were lighted by it.
The heavens were bent, so that he might come down; and it was dark under his feet.
