Psalms 18
New Living Translation
18[For the choir director: A psalm of David, the servant of the LORD. He sang this song to the LORD on the day the LORD rescued him from all his enemies and from Saul. He sang.] I love you, LORD; you are my strength.H5329H1732H5650H3068H1696H3068H1697H7892H3117H3068H5337H3709H341H3027H7586H559H7355H3068H2391 2The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.H3068H5553H4686H6403H410H6697H2620H4043H7161H3468H4869 3I called on the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies.H7121H3068H1984H3467H341 4The ropes of death entangled me; floods of destruction swept over me.H2256H4194H661H5158H1100H1204 5The grave wrapped its ropes around me; death laid a trap in my path.H2256H7585H5437H4170H4194H6923 6But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.H6862H7121H3068H7768H430H8085H6963H1964H7775H935H6440H241 7Then the earth quaked and trembled. The foundations of the mountains shook; they quaked because of his anger.H776H1607H7493H4146H2022H7264H1607H2734 8Smoke poured from his nostrils; fierce flames leaped from his mouth. Glowing coals blazed forth from him.H5927H6227H639H784H6310H398H1513H1197 9He opened the heavens and came down; dark storm clouds were beneath his feet.H5186H8064H3381H6205H7272 10Mounted on a mighty angelic being, he flew, soaring on the wings of the wind.H7392H3742H5774H1675H3671H7307 11He shrouded himself in darkness, veiling his approach with dark rain clouds.H7896H2822H5643H5521H5439H2824H4325H5645H7834 12Thick clouds shielded the brightness around him and rained down hail and burning coals.H5051H5645H5674H1259H1513H784 13The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded amid the hail and burning coals.H3068H7481H8064H5945H5414H6963H1259H1513H784 14He shot his arrows and scattered his enemies; his lightning flashed, and they were greatly confused.H7971H2671H6327H7232H1300H2000 15Then at your command, O LORD, at the blast of your breath, the bottom of the sea could be seen, and the foundations of the earth were laid bare.H650H4325H7200H4146H8398H1540H1606H3068H5397H7307H639 16He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters.H7971H4791H3947H4871H7227H4325 17He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me.H5337H5794H341H8130H553 18They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress, but the LORD supported me.H6923H3117H343H3068H4937 19He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.H3318H4800H2502H2654 20The LORD rewarded me for doing right; he restored me because of my innocence.H3068H1580H6664H1252H3027H7725 21For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I have not turned from my God to follow evil.H8104H1870H3068H7561H430 22I have followed all his regulations; I have never abandoned his decrees.H4941H5493H2708 23I am blameless before God; I have kept myself from sin.H8549H8104H5771 24The LORD rewarded me for doing right. He has seen my innocence.H3068H7725H6664H1252H3027H5869 25To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity.H2623H2616H8549H1399H8552 26To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the wicked you show yourself hostile.H1305H1305H6141H6617 27You rescue the humble, but you humiliate the proud.H3467H6041H5971H8213H7311H5869 28You light a lamp for me. The LORD, my God, lights up my darkness.H215H5216H3068H430H5050H2822 29In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.H7323H1416H430H1801H7791 30God's way is perfect. All the LORD's promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.H410H1870H8549H565H3068H6884H4043H2620 31For who is God except the LORD? Who but our God is a solid rock?H433H1107H3068H6697H2108H430 32God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect.H410H247H2428H5414H1870H8549 33He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.H7737H7272H355H5975H1116 34He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.H3925H3027H4421H7198H5154H5181H2220 35You have given me your shield of victory. Your right hand supports me; your help has made me great.H5414H4043H3468H3225H5582H6037H7235 36You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.H7337H6806H7166H4571 37I chased my enemies and caught them; I did not stop until they were conquered.H7291H341H5381H7725H3615 38I struck them down so they could not get up; they fell beneath my feet.H4272H3201H6965H5307H7272 39You have armed me with strength for the battle; you have subdued my enemies under my feet.H247H2428H4421H3766H6965 40You placed my foot on their necks. I have destroyed all who hated me.H5414H6203H341H6789H8130 41They called for help, but no one came to their rescue. They even cried to the LORD, but he refused to answer.H7768H3467H3068H6030 42I ground them as fine as dust in the wind. I swept them into the gutter like dirt.H7833H6083H6440H7307H7324H2916H2351 43You gave me victory over my accusers. You appointed me ruler over nations; people I don't even know now serve me.H6403H7379H5971H7760H7218H1471H5971H3045H5647 44As soon as they hear of me, they submit; foreign nations cringe before me.H8088H241H8085H1121H5236H3584 45They all lose their courage and come trembling from their strongholds.H1121H5236H5034H2727H4526 46The LORD lives! Praise to my Rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted!H3068H2416H1288H6697H430H3468H7311 47He is the God who pays back those who harm me; he subdues the nations under meH410H5414H5360H1696H5971 48and rescues me from my enemies. You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies; you save me from violent opponents.H6403H341H7311H6965H5337H2555H376 49For this, O LORD, I will praise you among the nations; I will sing praises to your name.H3034H3068H1471H2167H8034 50You give great victories to your king; you show unfailing love to your anointed, to David and all his descendants forever.H1431H3444H4428H6213H2617H4899H1732H2233H5704H5769
