my God, my rock, in whom I seek refuge;
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.
and I am saved from my enemies.
The torrents of Belial have terrified me.
The snares of death confronted me.
and I cried for help to my God.
He heard my voice out of his temple,
And my cry to him came into his ears.
The foundations also of the mountains quaked
and they shook back and forth because he was angry.
and fire from his mouth devoured.
Coals were set aflame by it.
And a thick cloud was under his feet.
his lair around him, darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
with hail and coals of fire.
And the Most High gave forth his voice: hail and coals of fire.
And he multiplied lightning bolts and confused them.
The foundations of the world were uncovered
at your rebuke, O Yahweh,
at the blast of the breath of your nostrils.
He took me;
He drew me out of many waters.
from those who hate me,
for they were too mighty for me.
but Yahweh was my support.
He delivered me because he delighted in me.
according to my righteousness.
According to the purity of my hands
has he recompensed me.
and have not wickedly departed from my God.
I did not put away his statutes from me.
I kept myself from my iniquity.
according to my righteousness,
according to the purity of my hands in his eyesight.
you will show yourself faithful.
With the blameless man
you will show yourself blameless.
you will show yourself pure.
With the crooked
you will show yourself cunning.
but the haughty eyes you will humiliate.
My God will illuminate my darkness.
By my God, I leap over a wall.
The speech of Yahweh has been tested.
He is a shield to all those who seek refuge in him.
Who is a rock besides our God,
and makes my road blameless?
and sets me on my high places.
so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
And your right hand supports me.
And your humility has made me great.
And my ankles have not slipped.
And I will not return until they are consumed.
They will fall under my feet.
You cause those who rise up to bow down underneath me.
that I might annihilate those who hate me.
they cried to Yahweh, but he did not answer them.
I crushed them like the mud of the streets.
You have made me the head of the nations.
A people whom I have not known will serve me.
Children of foreigners will cringe before me.
and will come trembling out of their dens.
And let the God of my deliverance be exalted—
and subdues peoples under me.
Yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me.
You deliver me from the violent person.
and will make music to your name.
and shows covenant faithfulness to his anointed one,
to David and to his seed forevermore.
