2 Samuel 22

  1 H1732 And David H1696 spake [H8762]   H3068 unto the LORD H1697 the words H7892 of this song H3117 in the day H3068 that the LORD H5337 had delivered [H8689]   H3709 him out of the hand H341 of all his enemies [H8802]   H3709 , and out of the hand H7586 of Saul:
  2 H559 And he said [H8799]   H3068 , The LORD H5553 is my rock H4686 , and my fortress H6403 , and my deliverer [H8764]  ;
  3 H430 The God H6697 of my rock H2620 ; in him will I trust [H8799]   H4043 : he is my shield H7161 , and the horn H3468 of my salvation H4869 , my high tower H4498 , and my refuge H3467 , my saviour [H8688]   H3467 ; thou savest [H8686]   H2555 me from violence.
  4 H7121 I will call [H8799]   H3068 on the LORD H1984 , who is worthy to be praised [H8794]   H3467 : so shall I be saved [H8735]   H341 from mine enemies [H8802]  .
  5 H4867 When the waves H4194 of death H661 compassed [H8804]   H5158 me, the floods H1100 of ungodly men H1204 made me afraid [H8762]  ;
  6 H2256 The sorrows H7585 of hell H5437 compassed me about [H8804]   H4170 ; the snares H4194 of death H6923 prevented [H8765]   me;
  7 H6862 In my distress H7121 I called [H8799]   H3068 upon the LORD H7121 , and cried [H8799]   H430 to my God H8085 : and he did hear [H8799]   H6963 my voice H1964 out of his temple H7775 , and my cry H241 did enter into his ears.
  8 H776 Then the earth H1607 shook [H8691]   [H8675]   H1607   [H8799]   H7493 and trembled [H8799]   H4146 ; the foundations H8064 of heaven H7264 moved [H8799]   H1607 and shook [H8691]   H2734 , because he was wroth [H8804]  .
  9 H5927 There went up [H8804]   H6227 a smoke H639 out of his nostrils H784 , and fire H6310 out of his mouth H398 devoured [H8799]   H1513 : coals H1197 were kindled [H8804]   by it.
  10 H5186 He bowed [H8799]   H8064 the heavens H3381 also, and came down [H8799]   H6205 ; and darkness H7272 was under his feet.
  11 H7392 And he rode [H8799]   H3742 upon a cherub H5774 , and did fly [H8799]   H7200 : and he was seen [H8735]   H3671 upon the wings H7307 of the wind.
  12 H7896 And he made [H8799]   H2822 darkness H5521 pavilions H5439 round about H2841 him, dark H4325 waters H5645 , and thick clouds H7834 of the skies.
  13 H5051 Through the brightness H1513 before him were coals H784 of fire H1197 kindled [H8804]  .
  14 H3068 The LORD H7481 thundered [H8686]   H8064 from heaven H5945 , and the most High H5414 uttered [H8799]   H6963 his voice.
  15 H7971 And he sent out [H8799]   H2671 arrows H6327 , and scattered [H8686]   H1300 them; lightning H2000 , and discomfited [H8799]   them.
  16 H650 And the channels H3220 of the sea H7200 appeared [H8735]   H4146 , the foundations H8398 of the world H1540 were discovered [H8735]   H1606 , at the rebuking H3068 of the LORD H5397 , at the blast H7307 of the breath H639 of his nostrils.
  17 H7971 He sent [H8799]   H4791 from above H3947 , he took [H8799]   H4871 me; he drew [H8686]   H7227 me out of many H4325 waters;
  18 H5337 He delivered [H8686]   H5794 me from my strong H341 enemy [H8802]   H8130 , and from them that hated [H8802]   H553 me: for they were too strong [H8804]   for me.
  19 H6923 They prevented [H8762]   H3117 me in the day H343 of my calamity H3068 : but the LORD H4937 was my stay.
  20 H3318 He brought me forth [H8686]   H4800 also into a large place H2502 : he delivered [H8762]   H2654 me, because he delighted [H8804]   in me.
  21 H3068 The LORD H1580 rewarded [H8799]   H6666 me according to my righteousness H1252 : according to the cleanness H3027 of my hands H7725 hath he recompensed [H8686]   me.
  22 H8104 For I have kept [H8804]   H1870 the ways H3068 of the LORD H7561 , and have not wickedly departed [H8804]   H430 from my God.
  23 H4941 For all his judgments H2708 were before me: and as for his statutes H5493 , I did not depart [H8799]   from them.
  24 H8549 I was also upright H8104 before him, and have kept [H8691]   H5771 myself from mine iniquity.
  25 H3068 Therefore the LORD H7725 hath recompensed [H8686]   H6666 me according to my righteousness H1252 ; according to my cleanness H5048 in his eye sight H5869  .
  26 H2623 With the merciful H2616 thou wilt shew thyself merciful [H8691]   H8549 , and with the upright H1368 man H8552 thou wilt shew thyself upright [H8691]  .
  27 H1305 With the pure [H8737]   H1305 thou wilt shew thyself pure [H8691]   H6141 ; and with the froward H6617 thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury [H8691]  .
  28 H6041 And the afflicted H5971 people H3467 thou wilt save [H8686]   H5869 : but thine eyes H7311 are upon the haughty [H8802]   H8213 , that thou mayest bring them down [H8686]  .
  29 H5216 For thou art my lamp H3068 , O LORD H3068 : and the LORD H5050 will lighten [H8686]   H2822 my darkness.
  30 H7323 For by thee I have run [H8799]   H1416 through a troop H430 : by my God H1801 have I leaped over [H8762]   H7791 a wall.
  31 H410 As for God H1870 , his way H8549 is perfect H565 ; the word H3068 of the LORD H6884 is tried [H8803]   H4043 : he is a buckler H2620 to all them that trust [H8802]   in him.
  32 H410 For who is God H1107 , save H3068 the LORD H6697 ? and who is a rock H1107 , save H430 our God?
  33 H410 God H4581 is my strength H2428 and power H5425 : and he maketh [H8686]   H1870 my way H8549 perfect.
  34 H7737 He maketh H7272 my feet H7737 like [H8764]   H355 hinds H5975 ' feet : and setteth [H8686]   H1116 me upon my high places.
  35 H3925 He teacheth [H8764]   H3027 my hands H4421 to war H7198 ; so that a bow H5154 of steel H5181 is broken [H8765]   H2220 by mine arms.
  36 H5414 Thou hast also given [H8799]   H4043 me the shield H3468 of thy salvation H6031 : and thy gentleness [H8800]   [H8676]   H6038   H7235 hath made me great [H8686]  .
  37 H7337 Thou hast enlarged [H8686]   H6806 my steps H7166 under me; so that my feet H4571 did not slip [H8804]  .
  38 H7291 I have pursued [H8799]   H341 mine enemies [H8802]   H8045 , and destroyed [H8686]   H7725 them; and turned not again [H8799]   H3615 until I had consumed [H8763]   them.
  39 H3615 And I have consumed [H8762]   H4272 them, and wounded [H8799]   H6965 them, that they could not arise [H8799]   H5307 : yea, they are fallen [H8799]   H7272 under my feet.
  40 H247 For thou hast girded [H8762]   H2428 me with strength H4421 to battle H6965 : them that rose up [H8801]   H3766 against me hast thou subdued [H8686]   under me.
  41 H5414 Thou hast also given [H8804]   H6203 me the necks H341 of mine enemies [H8802]   H6789 , that I might destroy [H8686]   H8130 them that hate [H8764]   me.
  42 H8159 They looked [H8799]   H3467 , but there was none to save [H8688]   H3068 ; even unto the LORD H6030 , but he answered [H8804]   them not.
  43 H7833 Then did I beat [H8799]   H6083 them as small as the dust H776 of the earth H1854 , I did stamp [H8686]   H2916 them as the mire H2351 of the street H7554 , and did spread them abroad [H8799]  .
  44 H6403 Thou also hast delivered [H8762]   H7379 me from the strivings H5971 of my people H8104 , thou hast kept [H8799]   H7218 me to be head H1471 of the heathen H5971 : a people H3045 which I knew [H8804]   H5647 not shall serve [H8799]   me.
  45 H1121 Strangers H5236   H3584 shall submit [H8691]   H8085 themselves unto me: as soon as they hear [H8800]   H241   H8085 , they shall be obedient [H8735]   unto me.
  46 H1121 Strangers H5236   H5034 shall fade away [H8799]   H2296 , and they shall be afraid [H8799]   H4526 out of their close places.
  47 H3068 The LORD H2416 liveth H1288 ; and blessed [H8803]   H6697 be my rock H7311 ; and exalted [H8799]   H430 be the God H6697 of the rock H3468 of my salvation.
  48 H410 It is God H5414 that avengeth [H8802]   H5360   H3381 me, and that bringeth down [H8688]   H5971 the people under me,
  49 H3318 And that bringeth me forth [H8688]   H341 from mine enemies [H8802]   H7311 : thou also hast lifted me up on high [H8787]   H6965 above them that rose up [H8801]   H5337 against me: thou hast delivered [H8686]   H2555 me from the violent H376 man.
  50 H3034 Therefore I will give thanks [H8686]   H3068 unto thee, O LORD H1471 , among the heathen H2167 , and I will sing praises [H8762]   H8034 unto thy name.
  51 H4024 He is the tower [H8675]   H1431   [H8688]   H3444 of salvation H4428 for his king H6213 : and sheweth [H8802]   H2617 mercy H4899 to his anointed H1732 , unto David H2233 , and to his seed H5704 for H5769 evermore.
