18:1 To the chief Musician [H5329] , [A Psalm] of David [H1732] , the servant [H5650] of the LORD [H3068] , who spake [H1696] unto the LORD [H3068] the words [H1697] of this song [H7892] in the day [H3117] [that] the LORD [H3068] delivered [H5337] him from the hand [H3709] of all his enemies [H341] , and from the hand [H3027] of Saul [H7586] : And he said [H559] , I will love [H7355] thee, O LORD [H3068] , my strength [H2391] .
18:2 The LORD [H3068] [is] my rock [H5553] , and my fortress [H4686] , and my deliverer [H6403] ; my God [H410] , my strength [H6697] , in whom I will trust [H2620] ; my buckler [H4043] , and the horn [H7161] of my salvation [H3468] , [and] my high tower [H4869] .(my strength: Heb. my rock)
18:3 I will call [H7121] upon the LORD [H3068] , [who is worthy] to be praised [H1984] : so shall I be saved [H3467] from mine enemies [H341] .
18:4 The sorrows [H2256] of death [H4194] compassed [H661] me, and the floods [H5158] of ungodly men [H1100] made me afraid [H1204] .(ungodly men: Heb. Belial)
18:5 The sorrows [H2256] of hell [H7585] compassed me about [H5437] : the snares [H4170] of death [H4194] prevented [H6923] me.(sorrows: or, cords)
18:6 In my distress [H6862] I called [H7121] upon the LORD [H3068] , and cried [H7768] unto my God [H430] : he heard [H8085] my voice [H6963] out of his temple [H1964] , and my cry [H7775] came [H935] before [H6440] him, [even] into his ears [H241] .
18:7 Then the earth [H776] shook [H1607] and trembled [H7493] ; the foundations [H4146] also of the hills [H2022] moved [H7264] and were shaken [H1607] , because he was wroth [H2734] .
18:8 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 his, etc)
18:9 He bowed [H5186] the heavens [H8064] also, and came down [H3381] : and darkness [H6205] [was] under his feet [H7272] .
18:10 And he rode [H7392] upon a cherub [H3742] , and did fly [H5774] : yea, he did fly [H1675] upon the wings [H3671] of the wind [H7307] .
18:11 He made [H7896] darkness [H2822] his secret place [H5643] ; his pavilion [H5521] round about [H5439] him [were] dark [H2824] waters [H4325] [and] thick clouds [H5645] of the skies [H7834] .
18:12 At the brightness [H5051] [that was] before him his thick clouds [H5645] passed [H5674] , hail [H1259] [stones] and coals [H1513] of fire [H784] .
18:13 The LORD [H3068] also thundered [H7481] in the heavens [H8064] , and the Highest [H5945] gave [H5414] his voice [H6963] ; hail [H1259] [stones] and coals [H1513] of fire [H784] .
18:14 Yea, he sent out [H7971] his arrows [H2671] , and scattered [H6327] them; and he shot out [H7232] lightnings [H1300] , and discomfited [H2000] them.
18:15 Then the channels [H650] of waters [H4325] were seen [H7200] , and the foundations [H4146] of the world [H8398] were discovered [H1540] at thy rebuke [H1606] , O LORD [H3068] , at the blast [H5397] of the breath [H7307] of thy nostrils [H639] .
18:16 He sent [H7971] from above [H4791] , he took [H3947] me, he drew [H4871] me out of many [H7227] waters [H4325] .(many: or, great)
18:17 He delivered [H5337] me from my strong [H5794] enemy [H341] , and from them which hated [H8130] me: for they were too strong [H553] for me.
18:18 They prevented [H6923] me in the day [H3117] of my calamity [H343] : but the LORD [H3068] was my stay [H4937] .
18:19 He brought me forth [H3318] also into a large place [H4800] ; he delivered [H2502] me, because he delighted [H2654] in me.
18:20 The LORD [H3068] rewarded [H1580] me according to my righteousness [H6664] ; according to the cleanness [H1252] of my hands [H3027] hath he recompensed [H7725] me.
18:21 For I have kept [H8104] the ways [H1870] of the LORD [H3068] , and have not wickedly departed [H7561] from my God [H430] .
18:22 For all his judgments [H4941] [were] before me, and I did not put away [H5493] his statutes [H2708] from me.
18:23 I was also upright [H8549] before him, and I kept [H8104] myself from mine iniquity [H5771] .(before: Heb. with)
18:24 Therefore hath the LORD [H3068] recompensed [H7725] me according to my righteousness [H6664] , according to the cleanness [H1252] of my hands [H3027] in his eyesight [H5869] .(in: Heb. before his eyes)
18:25 With the merciful [H2623] thou wilt shew thyself merciful [H2616] ; with an upright [H8549] man [H1399] thou wilt shew thyself upright [H8552] ;
18:26 With the pure [H1305] thou wilt shew thyself pure [H1305] ; and with the froward [H6141] thou wilt shew thyself froward [H6617] .(shew thyself froward: or, wrestle)
18:27 For thou wilt save [H3467] the afflicted [H6041] people [H5971] ; but wilt bring down [H8213] high [H7311] looks [H5869] .
18:28 For thou wilt light [H215] my candle [H5216] : the LORD [H3068] my God [H430] will enlighten [H5050] my darkness [H2822] .(candle: or, lamp)
18:29 For by thee I have run through [H7323] a troop [H1416] ; and by my God [H430] have I leaped over [H1801] a wall [H7791] .(run: or, broken)
18:30 [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 those that trust [H2620] in him.(tried: or, refined)
18:31 For who [is] God [H433] save [H1107] the LORD [H3068] ? or who [is] a rock [H6697] save [H2108] our God [H430] ?
18:32 [It is] God [H410] that girdeth [H247] me with strength [H2428] , and maketh [H5414] my way [H1870] perfect [H8549] .
18:33 He maketh [H7737] my feet [H7272] like hinds' [H355] [feet], and setteth [H5975] me upon my high places [H1116] .
18:34 He teacheth [H3925] my hands [H3027] to war [H4421] , so that a bow [H7198] of steel [H5154] is broken [H5181] by mine arms [H2220] .
18:35 Thou hast also given [H5414] me the shield [H4043] of thy salvation [H3468] : and thy right hand [H3225] hath holden me up [H5582] , and thy gentleness [H6037] hath made me great [H7235] .(thy gentleness: or, with thy meekness thou hast multiplied me)
18:36 Thou hast enlarged [H7337] my steps [H6806] under me, that my feet [H7166] did not slip [H4571] .(my feet: Heb. mine ankles)
18:37 I have pursued [H7291] mine enemies [H341] , and overtaken [H5381] them: neither did I turn again [H7725] till they were consumed [H3615] .
18:38 I have wounded [H4272] them that they were not able [H3201] to rise [H6965] : they are fallen [H5307] under my feet [H7272] .
18:39 For thou hast girded [H247] me with strength [H2428] unto the battle [H4421] : thou hast subdued [H3766] under me those that rose up [H6965] against me.(subdued: Heb. caused to bow)
18:40 Thou hast also given [H5414] me the necks [H6203] of mine enemies [H341] ; that I might destroy [H6789] them that hate [H8130] me.
18:41 They cried [H7768] , but [there was] none to save [H3467] [them: even] unto the LORD [H3068] , but he answered [H6030] them not.
18:42 Then did I beat [H7833] them small as the dust [H6083] before [H6440] the wind [H7307] : I did cast them out [H7324] as the dirt [H2916] in the streets [H2351] .
18:43 Thou hast delivered [H6403] me from the strivings [H7379] of the people [H5971] ; [and] thou hast made [H7760] me the head [H7218] of the heathen [H1471] : a people [H5971] [whom] I have not known [H3045] shall serve [H5647] me.
18:44 As soon as they hear [H8088] [H241] of me, they shall obey [H8085] me: the strangers [H1121] [H5236] shall submit [H3584] themselves unto me.(As soon: Heb. At the hearing of the ear)(submit: or, yield feigned obedience)(strangers: Heb. sons of the stranger)
18:45 The strangers [H1121] [H5236] shall fade away [H5034] , and be afraid [H2727] out of their close places [H4526] .(strangers: Heb. sons of the stranger)
18:46 The LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] ; and blessed [H1288] [be] my rock [H6697] ; and let the God [H430] of my salvation [H3468] be exalted [H7311] .
18:47 [It is] God [H410] that avengeth [H5414] [H5360] me, and subdueth [H1696] the people [H5971] under me.(avengeth: Heb. giveth avengements for)(subdueth: or, destroyeth)
18:48 He delivereth [H6403] me from mine enemies [H341] : yea, thou liftest me up [H7311] above those that rise up [H6965] against me: thou hast delivered [H5337] me from the violent [H2555] man [H376] .(violent: Heb. man of violence)
18:49 Therefore will I give thanks [H3034] unto thee, O LORD [H3068] , among the heathen [H1471] , and sing praises [H2167] unto thy name [H8034] .(give: or, confess)
18:50 Great [H1431] deliverance [H3444] giveth he to his king [H4428] ; and sheweth [H6213] mercy [H2617] to his anointed [H4899] , to David [H1732] , and to his seed [H2233] for [H5704] evermore [H5769] .
