22:1 And David [H1732] spake [H1696] unto the LORD [H3068] the words [H1697] of this song [H7892] in the day [H3117] [that] the LORD [H3068] had delivered [H5337] him out of the hand [H3709] of all his enemies [H341] , and out of the hand [H3709] of Saul [H7586] :
22:2 And he said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] [is] my rock [H5553] , and my fortress [H4686] , and my deliverer [H6403] ;
22:3 The God [H430] of my rock [H6697] ; in him will I trust [H2620] : [he is] my shield [H4043] , and the horn [H7161] of my salvation [H3468] , my high tower [H4869] , and my refuge [H4498] , my saviour [H3467] ; thou savest [H3467] me from violence [H2555] .
22:4 I will call [H7121] on the LORD [H3068] , [who is] worthy to be praised [H1984] : so shall I be saved [H3467] from mine enemies [H341] .
22:5 When the waves [H4867] of death [H4194] compassed [H661] me, the floods [H5158] of ungodly men [H1100] made me afraid [H1204] ;(waves: or, pangs)(ungodly: Heb. Belial)
22:6 The sorrows [H2256] of hell [H7585] compassed me about [H5437] ; the snares [H4170] of death [H4194] prevented [H6923] me;(sorrows: or, cords)
22:7 In my distress [H6862] I called [H7121] upon the LORD [H3068] , and cried [H7121] to my God [H430] : and he did hear [H8085] my voice [H6963] out of his temple [H1964] , and my cry [H7775] [did enter] into his ears [H241] .
22:8 Then the earth [H776] shook [H1607] [H1607] and trembled [H7493] ; the foundations [H4146] of heaven [H8064] moved [H7264] and shook [H1607] , because he was wroth [H2734] .
22:9 There went up [H5927] a smoke [H6227] out of his nostrils [H639] , and fire [H784] out of his mouth [H6310] devoured [H398] : coals [H1513] were kindled [H1197] by it.(out of his nostrils: Heb. by, etc)
22:10 He bowed [H5186] the heavens [H8064] also, and came down [H3381] ; and darkness [H6205] [was] under his feet [H7272] .
22:11 And he rode [H7392] upon a cherub [H3742] , and did fly [H5774] : and he was seen [H7200] upon the wings [H3671] of the wind [H7307] .
22:12 And he made [H7896] darkness [H2822] pavilions [H5521] round about [H5439] him, dark [H2841] waters [H4325] , [and] thick clouds [H5645] of the skies [H7834] .(dark: Heb. binding of waters)
22:13 Through the brightness [H5051] before him were coals [H1513] of fire [H784] kindled [H1197] .
22:14 The LORD [H3068] thundered [H7481] from heaven [H8064] , and the most High [H5945] uttered [H5414] his voice [H6963] .
22:15 And he sent out [H7971] arrows [H2671] , and scattered [H6327] them; lightning [H1300] , and discomfited [H2000] them.
22:16 And the channels [H650] of the sea [H3220] appeared [H7200] , the foundations [H4146] of the world [H8398] were discovered [H1540] , at the rebuking [H1606] of the LORD [H3068] , at the blast [H5397] of the breath [H7307] of his nostrils [H639] .
22:17 He sent [H7971] from above [H4791] , he took [H3947] me; he drew [H4871] me out of many [H7227] waters [H4325] ;(many: or, great)
22:18 He delivered [H5337] me from my strong [H5794] enemy [H341] , [and] from them that hated [H8130] me: for they were too strong [H553] for me.
22:19 They prevented [H6923] me in the day [H3117] of my calamity [H343] : but the LORD [H3068] was my stay [H4937] .
22:20 He brought me forth [H3318] also into a large place [H4800] : he delivered [H2502] me, because he delighted [H2654] in me.
22:21 The LORD [H3068] rewarded [H1580] me according to my righteousness [H6666] : according to the cleanness [H1252] of my hands [H3027] hath he recompensed [H7725] me.
22:22 For I have kept [H8104] the ways [H1870] of the LORD [H3068] , and have not wickedly departed [H7561] from my God [H430] .
22:23 For all his judgments [H4941] [were] before me: and [as for] his statutes [H2708] , I did not depart [H5493] from them.
22:24 I was also upright [H8549] before him, and have kept [H8104] myself from mine iniquity [H5771] .(before: Heb. to)
22:25 Therefore the LORD [H3068] hath recompensed [H7725] me according to my righteousness [H6666] ; according to my cleanness [H1252] in his eye sight [H5048] [H5869] .(in: Heb. before his eyes)
22:26 With the merciful [H2623] thou wilt shew thyself merciful [H2616] , [and] with the upright [H8549] man [H1368] thou wilt shew thyself upright [H8552] .
22:27 With the pure [H1305] thou wilt shew thyself pure [H1305] ; and with the froward [H6141] thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury [H6617] .(shew thyself unsavoury: or, wrestle)
22:28 And the afflicted [H6041] people [H5971] thou wilt save [H3467] : but thine eyes [H5869] [are] upon the haughty [H7311] , [that] thou mayest bring [them] down [H8213] .
22:29 For thou [art] my lamp [H5216] , O LORD [H3068] : and the LORD [H3068] will lighten [H5050] my darkness [H2822] .(lamp: or, candle)
22:30 For by thee I have run [H7323] through a troop [H1416] : by my God [H430] have I leaped over [H1801] a wall [H7791] .(run: or, broken)
22:31 [As for] God [H410] , his way [H1870] [is] perfect [H8549] ; the word [H565] of the LORD [H3068] [is] tried [H6884] : he [is] a buckler [H4043] to all them that trust [H2620] in him.(tried: or, refined)
22:32 For who [is] God [H410] , save [H1107] the LORD [H3068] ? and who [is] a rock [H6697] , save [H1107] our God [H430] ?
22:33 God [H410] [is] my strength [H4581] [and] power [H2428] : and he maketh [H5425] my way [H1870] perfect [H8549] .(maketh: Heb. riddeth, or, looseth)
22:34 He maketh [H7737] my feet [H7272] like [H7737] hinds' [H355] [feet]: and setteth [H5975] me upon my high places [H1116] .(maketh: Heb. equalleth)
22:35 He teacheth [H3925] my hands [H3027] to war [H4421] ; so that a bow [H7198] of steel [H5154] is broken [H5181] by mine arms [H2220] .(to war: Heb. for the war)
22:36 Thou hast also given [H5414] me the shield [H4043] of thy salvation [H3468] : and thy gentleness [H6031] [H6038] hath made me great [H7235] .(made: Heb. multiplied me)
22:37 Thou hast enlarged [H7337] my steps [H6806] under me; so that my feet [H7166] did not slip [H4571] .(feet: Heb. ankles)
22:38 I have pursued [H7291] mine enemies [H341] , and destroyed [H8045] them; and turned not again [H7725] until I had consumed [H3615] them.
22:39 And I have consumed [H3615] them, and wounded [H4272] them, that they could not arise [H6965] : yea, they are fallen [H5307] under my feet [H7272] .
22:40 For thou hast girded [H247] me with strength [H2428] to battle [H4421] : them that rose up [H6965] against me hast thou subdued [H3766] under me.(subdued: Heb. caused to bow)
22:41 Thou hast also given [H5414] me the necks [H6203] of mine enemies [H341] , that I might destroy [H6789] them that hate [H8130] me.
22:42 They looked [H8159] , but [there was] none to save [H3467] ; [even] unto the LORD [H3068] , but he answered [H6030] them not.
22:43 Then did I beat [H7833] them as small as the dust [H6083] of the earth [H776] , I did stamp [H1854] them as the mire [H2916] of the street [H2351] , [and] did spread them abroad [H7554] .
22:44 Thou also hast delivered [H6403] me from the strivings [H7379] of my people [H5971] , thou hast kept [H8104] me [to be] head [H7218] of the heathen [H1471] : a people [H5971] [which] I knew [H3045] not shall serve [H5647] me.
22:45 Strangers [H1121] [H5236] shall submit [H3584] themselves unto me: as soon as they hear [H8085] [H241] , they shall be obedient [H8085] unto me.(Strangers: Heb. Sons of the stranger)(submit: or, yield feigned obedience: Heb. lie)
22:46 Strangers [H1121] [H5236] shall fade away [H5034] , and they shall be afraid [H2296] out of their close places [H4526] .
22:47 The LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] ; and blessed [H1288] [be] my rock [H6697] ; and exalted [H7311] be the God [H430] of the rock [H6697] of my salvation [H3468] .
22:48 It [is] God [H410] that avengeth [H5414] [H5360] me, and that bringeth down [H3381] the people [H5971] under me,(avengeth: Heb. giveth avengement for)
22:49 And that bringeth me forth [H3318] from mine enemies [H341] : thou also hast lifted me up on high [H7311] above them that rose up [H6965] against me: thou hast delivered [H5337] me from the violent [H2555] man [H376] .
22:50 Therefore I will give thanks [H3034] unto thee, O LORD [H3068] , among the heathen [H1471] , and I will sing praises [H2167] unto thy name [H8034] .
22:51 [He is] the tower [H4024] [H1431] of salvation [H3444] for his king [H4428] : and sheweth [H6213] mercy [H2617] to his anointed [H4899] , unto David [H1732] , and to his seed [H2233] for [H5704] evermore [H5769] .
