David’s Song of Praise

22David sang this song to the LORD on the day the LORD rescued him from all his enemies and from Saul.H1732H1696H3068H1697H7892H3117H3068H5337H3709H341H3709H7586 2He sang: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;H559H3068H5553H4686H6403 3my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence.H430H6697H2620H4043H7161H3468H4869H4498H3467H3467H2555 4I called on the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies.H7121H3068H1984H3467H341 5"The waves of death overwhelmed me; floods of destruction swept over me.H4867H4194H661H5158H1100H1204 6The grave wrapped its ropes around me; death laid a trap in my path.H2256H7585H5437H4170H4194H6923 7But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I cried to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry reached his ears.H6862H7121H3068H7121H430H8085H6963H1964H7775H241 8"Then the earth quaked and trembled. The foundations of the heavens shook; they quaked because of his anger.H776H1607H1607H7493H4146H8064H7264H1607H2734 9Smoke poured from his nostrils; fierce flames leaped from his mouth. Glowing coals blazed forth from him.H5927H6227H639H784H6310H398H1513H1197 10He opened the heavens and came down; dark storm clouds were beneath his feet.H5186H8064H3381H6205H7272 11Mounted on a mighty angelic being, he flew, soaring on the wings of the wind.H7392H3742H5774H7200H3671H7307 12He shrouded himself in darkness, veiling his approach with dense rain clouds.H7896H2822H5521H5439H2841H4325H5645H7834 13A great brightness shone around him, and burning coals blazed forth.H5051H1513H784H1197 14The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.H3068H7481H8064H5945H5414H6963 15He shot arrows and scattered his enemies; his lightning flashed, and they were confused.H7971H2671H6327H1300H2000 16Then at the command of the LORD, at the blast of his breath, the bottom of the sea could be seen, and the foundations of the earth were laid bare.H650H3220H7200H4146H8398H1540H1606H3068H5397H7307H639 17"He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters.H7971H4791H3947H4871H7227H4325 18He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me.H5337H5794H341H8130H553 19They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress, but the LORD supported me.H6923H3117H343H3068H4937 20He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.H3318H4800H2502H2654 21The LORD rewarded me for doing right; he restored me because of my innocence.H3068H1580H6666H1252H3027H7725 22For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I have not turned from my God to follow evil.H8104H1870H3068H7561H430 23I have followed all his regulations; I have never abandoned his decrees.H4941H2708H5493 24I am blameless before God; I have kept myself from sin.H8549H8104H5771 25The LORD rewarded me for doing right. He has seen my innocence.H3068H7725H6666H1252H5048H5869 26"To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity.H2623H2616H8549H1368H8552 27To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the wicked you show yourself hostile.H1305H1305H6141H6617 28You rescue the humble, but your eyes watch the proud and humiliate them.H6041H5971H3467H5869H7311H8213 29O LORD, you are my lamp. The LORD lights up my darkness.H5216H3068H3068H5050H2822 30In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.H7323H1416H430H1801H7791 31"God's way is perfect. All the LORD's promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.H410H1870H8549H565H3068H6884H4043H2620 32For who is God except the LORD? Who but our God is a solid rock?H410H1107H3068H6697H1107H430 33God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect.H410H4581H2428H5425H1870H8549 34He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.H7737H7272H7737H355H5975H1116 35He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.H3925H3027H4421H7198H5154H5181H2220 36You have given me your shield of victory; your help has made me great.H5414H4043H3468H6031H6038H7235 37You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.H7337H6806H7166H4571 38"I chased my enemies and destroyed them; I did not stop until they were conquered.H7291H341H8045H7725H3615 39I consumed them; I struck them down so they did not get up; they fell beneath my feet.H3615H4272H6965H5307H7272 40You have armed me with strength for the battle; you have subdued my enemies under my feet.H247H2428H4421H6965H3766 41You placed my foot on their necks. I have destroyed all who hated me.H5414H6203H341H6789H8130 42They looked for help, but no one came to their rescue. They even cried to the LORD, but he refused to answer.H8159H3467H3068H6030 43I ground them as fine as the dust of the earth; I trampled them in the gutter like dirt.H7833H6083H776H1854H2916H2351H7554 44"You gave me victory over my accusers. You preserved me as the ruler over nations; people I don't even know now serve me.H6403H7379H5971H8104H7218H1471H5971H3045H5647 45Foreign nations cringe before me; as soon as they hear of me, they submit.H1121H5236H3584H8085H241H8085 46They all lose their courage and come trembling from their strongholds.H1121H5236H5034H2296H4526 47"The LORD lives! Praise to my Rock! May God, the Rock of my salvation, be exalted!H3068H2416H1288H6697H7311H430H6697H3468 48He is the God who pays back those who harm me; he brings down the nations under meH410H5414H5360H3381H5971 49and delivers me from my enemies. You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies; you save me from violent opponents.H3318H341H7311H6965H5337H2555H376 50For this, O LORD, I will praise you among the nations; I will sing praises to your name.H3034H3068H1471H2167H8034 51You give great victories to your king; you show unfailing love to your anointed, to David and all his descendants forever."H4024H1431H3444H4428H6213H2617H4899H1732H2233H5704H5769
