2 Samuel 22
A psalm of thanksgiving for God's powerful deliverance, and manifold blessings.
22:3 My God, was my rock, I sought refuge in him,My shield, and my horn of salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, My Saviour! from violence, thou didst save me.
22:5 When the breakers of death had encompassed me,the torrents of perdition, made me afraid,
22:6 the meshes of hades, had surrounded me,the snares of death had confronted me,
22:8 Then did the earth shake and quake, the foundations of the heavens, were deeply moved,yea they did shake, because he was angry,
22:9 There went up a smoke in his nostrils, and, a fire out of his mouth, devoured,live coals, were kindled from it:
22:10 Then he stretched out the heavens, and came down,and, thick gloom, was under his feet;
22:11 Then he rode on a cherub, and flew,and was seen on the wings of the wind;
22:12 And made of the darkness around him, pavilions,gathering of waters, clouds of vapours.
22:13 Out of the brightness before him, were kindled live coals of fire;
22:15 And he sent forth arrows, and scattered them,lightning, and confused them;
22:17 He sent from on high, he took me,he drew me out of many waters;
22:18 He rescued me from my foe, in his might,from them who hated me, because they were too strong for me:
22:20 And brought out, into a large place, even me,he delivered me, because he delighted in me:
22:23 For, all his regulations, were before me,and, as for his statutes, I turned not from them.
22:24 So became I blameless towards him,and kept myself from mine iniquity:
22:26 With the loving, thou didst show thyself loving,with the blameless hero, thou didst show thyself blameless;
22:27 With the pure, thou didst show thyself pure,but, with the perverse, thou didst shew thyself ready to contend:
22:28 And, a patient people, thou didst save,but, thine eyes, were on the loftythou layedst them low;
22:30 For, by thee, I ran through a troop,by my God, I leapt over a wall.
22:33 GOD, is my fortress of strength,and shewed to the blameless his way;
22:34 Planting my feet like the hinds',yea, on my high places, he caused me to stand;
22:35 Teaching my hands, to war,so that a bow of bronze was bent by mine arms;
22:36 Thus didst thou grant me, as a shield, thy salvation,and, thy condescension, made me great.
22:37 Thou didst widen my stepping-places, under me,so that mine ankles faltered not:
22:38 I pursued my foes, and destroyed them,and returned not, till they were consumed;
22:39 So I consumed them, and crushed them, and they rose not again,thus fell they under my feet:
22:40 Thus didst thou gird me with strength, for the battle,thou subduedst mine assailants under me:
22:41 And, as for my foes, thou didst give me their neck,yea, them who hated me, that I might destroy them:
22:43 Then did I beat them in pieces, like the dust of the earth,like the clay of the lanes, did I crush them, stamp them down.
22:44 Thus didst thou rescue me from the contentions of my people, didst keep me to be the head of nations:a people whom I had not known, served me;
22:45 The sons of the foreigner, came cringing unto me,at the hearing of the ear, they submitted to me,
22:46 The sons of the foreigner, were disheartened, and came quaking, out of their fortresses.
22:48 The GOD who hath avenged me, and brought down peoples under me;
22:49 And brought me forth from among my foes,yea, from mine assailants, hast thou set me on high, from the man of violence, hast thou delivered me.
22:51 Who hath made great the victories of his King,and shown lovingkindness to his Anointed One, to David and to his Seed, unto times age-abiding.
