The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
Read Psalm 18:4 Using Other Translations
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction assailed me;
The ropes of death entangled me; floods of destruction swept over me.
