To the chiefH5329 Musician,H5329 A PsalmH4210 of David,H1732 the servantH5650 of the LORD,H3068 whoH834 spakeH1696 unto the LORDH3068 the wordsH1697 of thisH2063 songH7892 in the dayH3117 that the LORDH3068 deliveredH5337 him from the handH3709 of allH3605 his enemies,H341 and from the handH3027 of Saul:H7586 And he said,H559 I will loveH7355 you, O LORD,H3068 my strength.H2391
The LORDH3068 is my rock,H5553 and my fortress,H4686 and my deliverer;H6403 my God,H410 my strength,H6697 in whom I will trust;H2620 my buckler,H4043 and the hornH7161 of my salvation,H3468 and my highH4869 tower.H4869
I will callH7121 on the LORD,H3068 who is worthy to be praised:H1984 so shall I be savedH3467 from my enemies.H341
The sorrowsH2256 of deathH4194 compassedH661 me, and the floodsH5158 of ungodlyH1100 men made me afraid.H1204
The sorrowsH2256 of hellH7585 compassedH5437 me about: the snaresH4170 of deathH4194 preventedH6923 me.
In my distressH6862 I calledH7121 on the LORD,H3068 and criedH7768 to my God:H430 he heardH8085 my voiceH6963 out of his temple,H1964 and my cryH7775 cameH935 beforeH6440 him, even into his ears.H241
Then the earthH776 shookH1607 and trembled;H7493 the foundationsH4146 also of the hillsH2022 movedH7264 and were shaken,H1607 becauseH3588 he was wroth.H2734
There wentH5927 up a smokeH6227 out of his nostrils,H639 and fireH784 out of his mouthH6310 devoured:H398 coalsH1513 were kindledH1197 by it.
He bowedH5186 the heavensH8064 also, and cameH3381 down:H3381 and darknessH6205 was underH8478 his feet.H7272
And he rodeH7392 on a cherub,H3742 and did fly:H5774 yes, he did flyH1675 on the wingsH3671 of the wind.H7307
He madeH7896 darknessH2822 his secretH5643 place; his pavilionH5521 roundH5439 about him were darkH2824 watersH4325 and thick cloudsH5645 of the skies.H7834
At the brightnessH5051 that was beforeH5048 him his thick cloudsH5645 passed,H5674 hailH1259 stones and coalsH1513 of fire.H784
The LORDH3068 also thunderedH7481 in the heavens,H8064 and the HighestH5945 gaveH5414 his voice;H6963 hailH1259 stones and coalsH1513 of fire.H784
Yes, he sentH7971 out his arrows,H2671 and scatteredH6327 them; and he shotH7232 out lightning,H1300 and discomfitedH1949 them.
Then the channelsH650 of watersH4325 were seen,H7200 and the foundationsH4146 of the worldH8398 were discoveredH1540 at your rebuke,H1606 O LORD,H3068 at the blastH5397 of the breathH7307 of your nostrils.H639
He sentH7971 from above,H4791 he tookH3947 me, he drewH4871 me out of manyH7227 waters.H4325
He deliveredH5337 me from my strongH5794 enemy,H341 and from them which hatedH8130 me: for they were too strongH553 for me.
They preventedH6923 me in the dayH3117 of my calamity:H343 but the LORDH3068 was my stay.H4937
He broughtH3318 me forthH3318 also into a largeH4800 place;H4800 he deliveredH2502 me, becauseH3588 he delightedH2654 in me.
The LORDH3068 rewardedH1580 me according to my righteousness;H6664 according to the cleannessH1252 of my handsH3027 has he recompensedH7725 me.
For I have keptH8104 the waysH1870 of the LORD,H3068 and have not wickedlyH7561 departed from my God.H430
For allH3605 his judgmentsH4941 were beforeH5048 me, and I did not putH5493 awayH5493 his statutesH2708 from me.
I was also uprightH8549 beforeH5973 him, and I keptH8104 myself from my iniquity.H5771
Therefore has the LORDH3068 recompensedH7725 me according to my righteousness,H6664 according to the cleannessH1252 of my handsH3027 in his eyesight.H5869
With the mercifulH2623 you will show yourself merciful;H2616 with an uprightH8549 manH1397 you will show yourself upright;H8549
With the pureH1305 you will show yourself pure;H1305 and with the fraudulentH6141 you will show yourself devious.H6617
For you will saveH3467 the afflictedH6041 people;H5971 but will bringH8213 downH8213 highH7311 looks.H5869
For you will lightH215 my candle:H5216 the LORDH3068 my GodH430 will enlightenH5050 my darkness.H2822
For by you I have runH7323 through a troop;H1416 and by my GodH430 have I leapedH1801 over a wall.H7791
As for God,H410 his wayH1870 is perfect:H8549 the wordH565 of the LORDH3068 is tried:H6884 he is a bucklerH4043 to allH3605 those that trustH2620 in him.
For whoH4310 is GodH433 saveH1107 the LORD?H3068 or whoH4310 is a rockH6697 saveH2108 our God?H430
It is GodH410 that girdsH247 me with strength,H2428 and makesH5414 my wayH1870 perfect.H8549
He makesH7737 my feetH7272 like hinds'H355 feet,H7272 and setsH5975 me on my highH1116 places.
He teachesH3925 my handsH3027 to war,H4421 so that a bowH7198 of steelH5154 is brokenH5181 by my arms.H2220
You have also givenH5414 me the shieldH4043 of your salvation:H3468 and your rightH3225 handH3225 has heldH5582 me up, and your gentlenessH6038 has made me great.H7235
You have enlargedH7337 my stepsH6806 underH8478 me, that my feetH7166 did not slip.H4571
I have pursuedH7291 my enemies,H341 and overtakenH5381 them: neitherH3808 did I turnH7725 againH7725 tillH5704 they were consumed.H3615
I have woundedH4272 them that they were not ableH3201 to rise:H6965 they are fallenH5307 underH8478 my feet.H7272
For you have girdedH247 me with strengthH2428 to the battle:H4421 you have subduedH3766 underH8478 me those that roseH6965 up against me.
You have also givenH5414 me the necksH6203 of my enemies;H341 that I might destroyH6789 them that hateH8130 me.
They cried,H7768 but there was noneH369 to saveH3467 them: even to the LORD,H3068 but he answeredH6030 them not.
Then did I beatH7833 them small as the dustH6083 beforeH5921 H6440 the wind:H7307 I did castH7324 them out as the dirtH2916 in the streets.H2351
You have deliveredH6403 me from the strivingsH7379 of the people;H5971 and you have madeH7760 me the headH7218 of the heathen:H1471 a peopleH5971 whom I have not knownH3045 shall serveH5647 me.
As soon as they hearH8085 of me, they shall obeyH8085 me: the strangersH1121 H5236 shall submitH3584 themselves to me.
The strangersH1121 H5236 shall fadeH5034 away, and be afraidH2727 out of their closeH4526 places.
The LORDH3068 lives;H2416 and blessedH1288 be my rock;H6697 and let the GodH430 of my salvationH3468 be exalted.H7311
It is GodH410 that avengesH5414 H5360 me, and subduesH1696 the peopleH5971 underH8478 me.
He deliversH6403 me from my enemies:H341 yes,H637 you liftH7311 me up above those that riseH6965 up against me: you have deliveredH5337 me from the violentH2555 man.H376
ThereforeH5921 H3651 will I give thanksH3034 to you, O LORD,H3068 among the heathen,H1471 and sing praises to your name.H8034
GreatH1431 deliveranceH3444 gives he to his king;H4428 and showsH6213 mercyH2617 to his anointed,H4899 to David,H1732 and to his seedH2233 for ever more.H5769
