2 Samuel 22
22:1 And David spake unto Jehovah the words of this song in the day that Jehovah delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:
22:3 God, my rock, in him will I take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge; My saviour, thou savest me from violence.
22:7 In my distress I called upon Jehovah; Yea, I called unto my God: And he heard my voice out of his temple, And my cry `came' into his ears.
22:8 Then the earth shook and trembled, The foundations of heaven quaked And were shaken, because he was wroth.
22:9 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, And fire out of his mouth devoured: Coals were kindled by it.
22:12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, Gathering of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
22:16 Then the channels of the sea appeared, The foundations of the world were laid bare, By the rebuke of Jehovah, At the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, From them that hated me; for they were too mighty for me.
22:21 Jehovah rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
22:25 Therefore hath Jehovah recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to my cleanness in his eyesight.
22:26 With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful; With the perfect man thou wilt show thyself perfect;
22:27 With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; And with the perverse thou wilt show thyself froward.
22:28 And the afflicted people thou wilt save; But thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.
22:31 As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Jehovah is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in him.
22:38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; Neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
22:39 And I have consumed them, and smitten them through, so that they cannot arise: Yea, they are fallen under my feet.
22:40 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle; Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
22:41 Thou hast also made mine enemies turn their backs unto me, That I might cut off them that hate me.
22:43 Then did I beat them small as the dust of the earth, I did crush them as the mire of the streets, and did spread them abroad.
22:44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people; Thou hast kept me to be the head of the nations: A people whom I have not known shall serve me.
22:45 The foreigners shall submit themselves unto me: As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me.
22:49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: Yea, thou liftest me up above them that rise up against me; Thou deliverest me from the violent man.
22:50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah, among the nations, And will sing praises unto thy name.
22:51 Great deliverance giveth he to his king, And showeth lovingkindness to his anointed, To David and to his seed, for evermore.
