David's Song of Deliverance

1And David spoke to 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: 2And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; 3The 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 savior; you save me from violence. 4I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies. 5When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid; 6The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me; 7In my distress I called on 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. 8Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth. 9There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 10He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet. 11And he rode on a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen on the wings of the wind. 12And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. 13Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled. 14The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice. 15And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them. 16And 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. 17He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters; 18He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. 19They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. 20He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 21The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed me. 22For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. 23For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them. 24I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from my iniquity. 25Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight. 26With the merciful you will show yourself merciful, and with the upright man you will show yourself upright. 27With the pure you will show yourself pure; and with the fraudulent you will show yourself unsavory. 28And the afflicted people you will save: but your eyes are on the haughty, that you may bring them down. 29For you are my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. 30For by you I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. 31As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. 32For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? 33God is my strength and power: and he makes my way perfect. 34He makes my feet like hinds' feet: and sets me on my high places. 35He teaches my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by my arms. 36You have also given me the shield of your salvation: and your gentleness has made me great. 37You have enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip. 38I have pursued my enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them. 39And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yes, they are fallen under my feet. 40For you have girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me have you subdued under me. 41You have also given me the necks of my enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me. 42They looked, but there was none to save; even to the LORD, but he answered them not. 43Then 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. 44You also have delivered me from the strivings of my people, you have kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me. 45Strangers shall submit themselves to me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient to me. 46Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places. 47The LORD lives; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. 48It is God that avenges me, and that brings down the people under me. 49And that brings me forth from my enemies: you also have lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: you have delivered me from the violent man. 50Therefore I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises to your name. 51He is the tower of salvation for his king: and shows mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for ever more.
