2 Samuel 22:1-51

And David
<01732>
spake
<01696> (8762)
unto the LORD
<03068>
the words
<01697>
of this song
<07892>
in the day
<03117>
[that] the LORD
<03068>
had delivered
<05337> (8689)
him out of the hand
<03709>
of all his enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and out of the hand
<03709>
of Saul
<07586>_:
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
The LORD
<03068>
[is] my rock
<05553>_,
and my fortress
<04686>_,
and my deliverer
<06403> (8764)_;
The God
<0430>
of my rock
<06697>_;
in him will I trust
<02620> (8799)_:
[he is] my shield
<04043>_,
and the horn
<07161>
of my salvation
<03468>_,
my high tower
<04869>_,
and my refuge
<04498>_,
my saviour
<03467> (8688)_;
thou savest
<03467> (8686)
me from violence
<02555>_.
I will call
<07121> (8799)
on the LORD
<03068>_,
[who is] worthy to be praised
<01984> (8794)_:
so shall I be saved
<03467> (8735)
from mine enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
When the waves
<04867>
of death
<04194>
compassed
<0661> (8804)
me, the floods
<05158>
of ungodly men
<01100>
made me afraid
<01204> (8762)_;
{waves: or, pangs} {ungodly...: Heb. Belial}
The sorrows
<02256>
of hell
<07585>
compassed me about
<05437> (8804)_;
the snares
<04170>
of death
<04194>
prevented
<06923> (8765)
me; {sorrows: or, cords}
In my distress
<06862>
I called
<07121> (8799)
upon the LORD
<03068>_,
and cried
<07121> (8799)
to my God
<0430>_:
and he did hear
<08085> (8799)
my voice
<06963>
out of his temple
<01964>_,
and my cry
<07775>
[did enter] into his ears
<0241>_.
Then the earth
<0776>
shook
<01607> (8691) (8675) <01607> (8799)
and trembled
<07493> (8799)_;
the foundations
<04146>
of heaven
<08064>
moved
<07264> (8799)
and shook
<01607> (8691)_,
because he was wroth
<02734> (8804)_.
There went up
<05927> (8804)
a smoke
<06227>
out of his nostrils
<0639>_,
and fire
<0784>
out of his mouth
<06310>
devoured
<0398> (8799)_:
coals
<01513>
were kindled
<01197> (8804)
by it. {out of his nostrils: Heb. by, etc}
He bowed
<05186> (8799)
the heavens
<08064>
also, and came down
<03381> (8799)_;
and darkness
<06205>
[was] under his feet
<07272>_.
And he rode
<07392> (8799)
upon a cherub
<03742>_,
and did fly
<05774> (8799)_:
and he was seen
<07200> (8735)
upon the wings
<03671>
of the wind
<07307>_.
And he made
<07896> (8799)
darkness
<02822>
pavilions
<05521>
round about
<05439>
him, dark
<02841>
waters
<04325>_,
[and] thick clouds
<05645>
of the skies
<07834>_.
{dark...: Heb. binding of waters}
Through the brightness
<05051>
before him were coals
<01513>
of fire
<0784>
kindled
<01197> (8804)_.
The LORD
<03068>
thundered
<07481> (8686)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and the most High
<05945>
uttered
<05414> (8799)
his voice
<06963>_.
And he sent out
<07971> (8799)
arrows
<02671>_,
and scattered
<06327> (8686)
them; lightning
<01300>_,
and discomfited
<02000> (8799)
them.
And the channels
<0650>
of the sea
<03220>
appeared
<07200> (8735)_,
the foundations
<04146>
of the world
<08398>
were discovered
<01540> (8735)_,
at the rebuking
<01606>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
at the blast
<05397>
of the breath
<07307>
of his nostrils
<0639>_.
He sent
<07971> (8799)
from above
<04791>_,
he took
<03947> (8799)
me; he drew
<04871> (8686)
me out of many
<07227>
waters
<04325>_;
{many: or, great}
He delivered
<05337> (8686)
me from my strong
<05794>
enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
[and] from them that hated
<08130> (8802)
me: for they were too strong
<0553> (8804)
for me.
They prevented
<06923> (8762)
me in the day
<03117>
of my calamity
<0343>_:
but the LORD
<03068>
was my stay
<04937>_.
He brought me forth
<03318> (8686)
also into a large place
<04800>_:
he delivered
<02502> (8762)
me, because he delighted
<02654> (8804)
in me.
The LORD
<03068>
rewarded
<01580> (8799)
me according to my righteousness
<06666>_:
according to the cleanness
<01252>
of my hands
<03027>
hath he recompensed
<07725> (8686)
me.
For I have kept
<08104> (8804)
the ways
<01870>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and have not wickedly departed
<07561> (8804)
from my God
<0430>_.
For all his judgments
<04941>
[were] before me: and [as for] his statutes
<02708>_,
I did not depart
<05493> (8799)
from them.
I was also upright
<08549>
before him, and have kept
<08104> (8691)
myself from mine iniquity
<05771>_.
{before: Heb. to}
Therefore the LORD
<03068>
hath recompensed
<07725> (8686)
me according to my righteousness
<06666>_;
according to my cleanness
<01252>
in his eye sight
<05048> <05869>_.
{in...: Heb. before his eyes}
With the merciful
<02623>
thou wilt shew thyself merciful
<02616> (8691)_,
[and] with the upright
<08549>
man
<01368>
thou wilt shew thyself upright
<08552> (8691)_.
With the pure
<01305> (8737)
thou wilt shew thyself pure
<01305> (8691)_;
and with the froward
<06141>
thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury
<06617> (8691)_.
{shew thyself unsavoury: or, wrestle}
And the afflicted
<06041>
people
<05971>
thou wilt save
<03467> (8686)_:
but thine eyes
<05869>
[are] upon the haughty
<07311> (8802)_,
[that] thou mayest bring [them] down
<08213> (8686)_.
For thou [art] my lamp
<05216>_,
O LORD
<03068>_:
and the LORD
<03068>
will lighten
<05050> (8686)
my darkness
<02822>_.
{lamp: or, candle}
For by thee I have run
<07323> (8799)
through a troop
<01416>_:
by my God
<0430>
have I leaped over
<01801> (8762)
a wall
<07791>_.
{run: or, broken}
[As for] God
<0410>_,
his way
<01870>
[is] perfect
<08549>_;
the word
<0565>
of the LORD
<03068>
[is] tried
<06884> (8803)_:
he [is] a buckler
<04043>
to all them that trust
<02620> (8802)
in him. {tried: or, refined}
For who [is] God
<0410>_,
save
<01107>
the LORD
<03068>_?
and who [is] a rock
<06697>_,
save
<01107>
our God
<0430>_?
God
<0410>
[is] my strength
<04581>
[and] power
<02428>_:
and he maketh
<05425> (8686)
my way
<01870>
perfect
<08549>_.
{maketh: Heb. riddeth, or, looseth}
He maketh
<07737> (0)
my feet
<07272>
like
<07737> (8764)
hinds
<0355>_'
[feet]: and setteth
<05975> (8686)
me upon my high places
<01116>_.
{maketh: Heb. equalleth}
He teacheth
<03925> (8764)
my hands
<03027>
to war
<04421>_;
so that a bow
<07198>
of steel
<05154>
is broken
<05181> (8765)
by mine arms
<02220>_.
{to war: Heb. for the war}
Thou hast also given
<05414> (8799)
me the shield
<04043>
of thy salvation
<03468>_:
and thy gentleness
<06031> (8800) (8676) <06038>
hath made me great
<07235> (8686)_.
{made...: Heb. multiplied me}
Thou hast enlarged
<07337> (8686)
my steps
<06806>
under me; so that my feet
<07166>
did not slip
<04571> (8804)_.
{feet: Heb. ankles}
I have pursued
<07291> (8799)
mine enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and destroyed
<08045> (8686)
them; and turned not again
<07725> (8799)
until I had consumed
<03615> (8763)
them.
And I have consumed
<03615> (8762)
them, and wounded
<04272> (8799)
them, that they could not arise
<06965> (8799)_:
yea, they are fallen
<05307> (8799)
under my feet
<07272>_.
For thou hast girded
<0247> (8762)
me with strength
<02428>
to battle
<04421>_:
them that rose up
<06965> (8801)
against me hast thou subdued
<03766> (8686)
under me. {subdued: Heb. caused to bow}
Thou hast also given
<05414> (8804)
me the necks
<06203>
of mine enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
that I might destroy
<06789> (8686)
them that hate
<08130> (8764)
me.
They looked
<08159> (8799)_,
but [there was] none to save
<03467> (8688)_;
[even] unto the LORD
<03068>_,
but he answered
<06030> (8804)
them not.
Then did I beat
<07833> (8799)
them as small as the dust
<06083>
of the earth
<0776>_,
I did stamp
<01854> (8686)
them as the mire
<02916>
of the street
<02351>_,
[and] did spread them abroad
<07554> (8799)_.
Thou also hast delivered
<06403> (8762)
me from the strivings
<07379>
of my people
<05971>_,
thou hast kept
<08104> (8799)
me [to be] head
<07218>
of the heathen
<01471>_:
a people
<05971>
[which] I knew
<03045> (8804)
not shall serve
<05647> (8799)
me.
Strangers
<01121> <05236>
shall submit
<03584> (8691)
themselves unto me: as soon as they hear
<08085> (8800) <0241>_,
they shall be obedient
<08085> (8735)
unto me. {Strangers: Heb. Sons of the stranger} {submit...: or, yield feigned obedience: Heb. lie}
Strangers
<01121> <05236>
shall fade away
<05034> (8799)_,
and they shall be afraid
<02296> (8799)
out of their close places
<04526>_.
The LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_;
and blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be] my rock
<06697>_;
and exalted
<07311> (8799)
be the God
<0430>
of the rock
<06697>
of my salvation
<03468>_.
It [is] God
<0410>
that avengeth
<05414> (8802) <05360>
me, and that bringeth down
<03381> (8688)
the people
<05971>
under me, {avengeth: Heb. giveth avengement for}
And that bringeth me forth
<03318> (8688)
from mine enemies
<0341> (8802)_:
thou also hast lifted me up on high
<07311> (8787)
above them that rose up
<06965> (8801)
against me: thou hast delivered
<05337> (8686)
me from the violent
<02555>
man
<0376>_.
Therefore I will give thanks
<03034> (8686)
unto thee, O LORD
<03068>_,
among the heathen
<01471>_,
and I will sing praises
<02167> (8762)
unto thy name
<08034>_.
[He is] the tower
<04024> (8675) <01431> (8688)
of salvation
<03444>
for his king
<04428>_:
and sheweth
<06213> (8802)
mercy
<02617>
to his anointed
<04899>_,
unto David
<01732>_,
and to his seed
<02233>
for
<05704>
evermore
<05769>_.
