2 Samuel 22
A psalm of thanksgiving for God's powerful deliverance, and manifold blessings.
22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: [he is] my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my preserver; thou savest me from violence.
22:5 When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly-men made me afraid;
22:6 The sorrows of hell encompassed me; the snares of death seized me;
22:8 Then the earth shook and trembled: the foundations of heaven moved and shook, 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.
22:10 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness [was] under his feet.
22:11 And he rode upon a cherub, and flew: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.
22:12 And he made darkness pavilions around him, dark waters, [and] thick clouds of the skies.
22:13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.
22:15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.
22:17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;
22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
22:20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
22:23 For all his judgments [were] before me: and [as for] his statutes, I did not depart from them.
22:24 I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from my iniquity.
22:26 With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful, [and] with the upright man thou wilt show thyself upright.
22:27 With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt contend.
22:28 And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thy eyes [are] upon the haughty, [that] thou mayest bring [them] down.
22:30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
22:33 God [is] my strength [and] power: and he maketh my way perfect.
22:34 He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet]: and setteth me upon my high places.
22:35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by my arms.
22:36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
22:37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet have not slipped.
22:38 I have pursued my enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
22:39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they have fallen under my feet.
22:40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.
22:41 Thou hast also given me the necks of my enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.
22:43 Then I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I stamped them as the mire of the street, [and] spread them abroad.
22:44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me [to be] head of the heathen: a people [which] I knew not shall serve me.
22:45 Strangers shall submit themselves to me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient to me.
22:46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall tremble from their close places.
22:48 It [is] God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me,
22:49 And that bringeth me forth from my enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
22:51 [He is] the tower of salvation for his king: and [he] showeth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
