22:6 The cords of Sheol have surrounded me, Before me have been the snares of death.
22:8 And shake and tremble doth the earth, Foundations of the heavens are troubled, And are shaken, for He hath wrath!
22:9 Gone up hath smoke by His nostrils. And fire from His mouth devoureth, Brands have been kindled by it.
22:10 And He inclineth heaven, and cometh down, And thick darkness [is] under His feet.
22:11 And He rideth on a cherub, and doth fly, And is seen on the wings of the wind.
22:12 And He setteth darkness Round about Himtabernacles, Darkness of watersthick clouds of the skies.
22:13 From the brightness before Him Were brands of fire kindled!
22:15 And He sendeth forth arrows, And scattereth them; Lightning, and troubleth them;

22:30 For by Thee I runa troop, By my God I leap a wall.
22:33 Godmy bulwark, [my] strength, And He maketh perfect my way;
22:34 Making my feet like hinds, And on my high places causeth me to stand,
22:35 Teaching my hands for battle, And brought down was a bow of brass by mine arms,
22:36 And Thou givest to me the shield of Thy salvation, And Thy lowliness maketh me great.
22:37 Thou enlargest my step under me, And mine ankles have not slidden.
22:38 I pursue mine enemies and destroy them, And I turn not till they are consumed.
22:39 And I consume them, and smite them, And they rise not, and fall under my feet.
22:40 And Thou girdest me [with] strength for battle, Thou causest my withstanders to bow under me.

22:49 And bringing me forth from mine enemies, Yea, above my withstanders Thou raisest me up. From a man of violence Thou deliverest me.
