David's Song of Deliverance

1And David spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. 2He said,

“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,

3my1 God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

my shield, and the horn of my salvation,

my stronghold and my refuge,

my savior; you save me from violence.

4I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

and I am saved from my enemies.

5“For the waves of death encompassed me,

the torrents of destruction assailed me;2

6the cords of Sheol entangled me;

the snares of death confronted me.

7“In my distress I called upon the Lord;

to my God I called.

From his temple he heard my voice,

and my cry came to his ears.

8“Then the earth reeled and rocked;

the foundations of the heavens trembled

and quaked, because he was angry.

9Smoke went up from his nostrils,3

and devouring fire from his mouth;

glowing coals flamed forth from him.

10He bowed the heavens and came down;

thick darkness was under his feet.

11He rode on a cherub and flew;

he was seen on the wings of the wind.

12He made darkness around him his canopy,

thick clouds, a gathering of water.

13Out of the brightness before him

coals of fire flamed forth.

14The Lord thundered from heaven,

and the Most High uttered his voice.

15And he sent out arrows and scattered them;

lightning, and routed them.

16Then the channels of the sea were seen;

the foundations of the world were laid bare,

at the rebuke of the Lord,

at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.

17“He sent from on high, he took me;

he drew me out of many waters.

18He rescued me from my strong enemy,

from those who hated me,

for they were too mighty for me.

19They confronted me in the day of my calamity,

but the Lord was my support.

20He brought me out into a broad place;

he rescued me, because he delighted in me.
