He surrounded himself with darkness. He made the dark rain clouds his covering.
Out of the brightness in front of him, he made lightning.
The LORD thundered from heaven. The Most High made his voice heard.
He shot arrows and scattered them. He flashed streaks of lightning and threw them into confusion.
Then the ocean floor could be seen. The foundations of the earth were laid bare at the LORD's stern warning, at the blast of the breath from his nostrils.
He reached down from high above and took hold of me. He pulled me out of the raging water.
He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, because they were too strong for me.
On the day when I faced disaster, they confronted me, but the LORD became my defense.
He brought me out to a wide-open place. He rescued me because he was pleased with me.
The LORD rewarded me because of my righteousness, because my hands are clean. He paid me back
because I have kept the ways of the LORD and I have not wickedly turned away from my God,
