1: And David spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul: edit

2: And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; edit

3: The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. edit

4: I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. edit

5: When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid; edit

6: The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me; edit

7: In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears. edit

8: Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth. edit

9: There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. edit

10: He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet. edit

11: And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind. edit

12: And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. edit

13: Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled. edit

14: The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice. edit

15: And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them. edit

16: And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. edit

17: He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters; edit

18: He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. edit

19: They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. edit

20: He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me. edit

21: The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. edit

22: For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. edit

23: For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them. edit

24: I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity. edit

25: Therefore the LORD hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight. edit

26: With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright. edit

27: With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury. edit

28: And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down. edit

29: For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. edit

30: For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. edit

31: As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. edit

32: For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? edit

33: God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect. edit

34: He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places. edit

35: He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. edit

36: Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great. edit

37: Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip. edit

38: I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them. edit

39: And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet. edit

40: For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me. edit

41: Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me. edit

42: They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not. edit

43: Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad. edit

44: Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me. edit

45: Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me. edit

46: Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places. edit

47: The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. edit

48: It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me. edit

49: And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. edit

50: Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. edit

51: He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore. edit
