2 Samuel 22
                       
2SAM 22:1 David spoke to Yahweh the words of this song in the day that Yahweh delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:
2SAM 22:2 and he said, Yahweh is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, even mine;
2SAM 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 savior, you save me from violence.
2SAM 22:4 I will call on Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised: So shall I be saved from my enemies.
2SAM 22:5 For the waves of death compassed me; The floods of ungodliness made me afraid:
2SAM 22:6 The cords of Sheol were round about me; The snares of death came on me.
2SAM 22:7 In my distress I called on Yahweh; Yes, I called to my God: He heard my voice out of his temple, My cry [came] into his ears.
2SAM 22:8 Then the earth shook and trembled, The foundations of heaven quaked Were shaken, because he was angry.
2SAM 22:9 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, Fire out of his mouth devoured: Coals were kindled by it.
2SAM 22:10 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; Thick darkness was under his feet.
2SAM 22:11 He rode on a cherub, and did fly; Yes, he was seen on the wings of the wind.
2SAM 22:12 He made darkness pavilions round about him, Gathering of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
2SAM 22:13 At the brightness before him Coals of fire were kindled.
2SAM 22:14 Yahweh thundered from heaven, The Most High uttered his voice.
2SAM 22:15 He sent out arrows, and scattered them; Lightning, and confused them.
2SAM 22:16 Then the channels of the sea appeared, The foundations of the world were laid bare, By the rebuke of Yahweh, At the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
2SAM 22:17 He sent from on high, he took me; He drew me out of many waters;
2SAM 22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me; for they were too mighty for me.
2SAM 22:19 They came on me in the day of my calamity; But Yahweh was my stay.
2SAM 22:20 He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because he delighted in me.
2SAM 22:21 Yahweh rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed me.
2SAM 22:22 For I have kept the ways of Yahweh, And have not wickedly departed from my God.
2SAM 22:23 For all his ordinances were before me; As for his statutes, I did not depart from them.
2SAM 22:24 I was also perfect toward him; I kept myself from my iniquity.
2SAM 22:25 Therefore has Yahweh recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to my cleanness in his eyesight.
2SAM 22:26 With the merciful you will show yourself merciful; With the perfect man you will show yourself perfect;
2SAM 22:27 With the pure you will show yourself pure; With the crooked you will show yourself shrewd.
2SAM 22:28 The afflicted people you will save; But your eyes are on the haughty, that you may bring them down.
2SAM 22:29 For you are my lamp, Yahweh; Yahweh will lighten my darkness.
2SAM 22:30 For by you I run on a troop; By my God do I leap over a wall.
2SAM 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Yahweh is tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him.
2SAM 22:32 For who is God, save Yahweh? Who is a rock, save our God?
2SAM 22:33 God is my strong fortress; He guides the perfect in his way.
2SAM 22:34 He makes his feet like hinds' [feet], Sets me on my high places.
2SAM 22:35 He teaches my hands to war, So that my arms do bend a bow of brass.
2SAM 22:36 You have also given me the shield of your salvation; Your gentleness has made me great.
2SAM 22:37 You have enlarged my steps under me; My feet have not slipped.
2SAM 22:38 I have pursued my enemies, and destroyed them; Neither did I turn again until they were consumed.
2SAM 22:39 I have consumed them, and struck them through, so that they can't arise: Yes, they are fallen under my feet.
2SAM 22:40 For you have girded me with strength to the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
2SAM 22:41 You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, That I might cut off those who hate me.
2SAM 22:42 They looked, but there was none to save; Even to Yahweh, but he didn't answer them.
2SAM 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.
2SAM 22:44 You also have delivered me from the strivings of my people; You have kept me to be the head of the nations: A people whom I have not known shall serve me.
2SAM 22:45 The foreigners shall submit themselves to me: As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me.
2SAM 22:46 The foreigners shall fade away, Shall come trembling out of their close places.
2SAM 22:47 Yahweh lives; Blessed be my rock; Exalted be God, the rock of my salvation,
2SAM 22:48 Even the God who executes vengeance for me, Who brings down peoples under me,
2SAM 22:49 Who brings me forth from my enemies: Yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me; You deliver me from the violent man.
2SAM 22:50 Therefore I will give thanks to you, Yahweh, among the nations, Will sing praises to your name.
2SAM 22:51 Great deliverance gives he to his king, Shows loving kindness to his anointed, To David and to his seed, forevermore.
