Book of 2 Samuel
King James Version
David's Song of Praise
22:11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.
22:12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.
22:13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.
22:14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.
22:15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.
22:16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
22:17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;
22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
22:19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
22:20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
22:21 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
22:22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22:23 For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them.
22:24 I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity.
22:25 Therefore the LORD hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight.
22:26 With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt show thyself upright.
22:27 With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt show thyself unsavory.
22:28 And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.
22:29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.
22:30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
22:33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
22:34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places.
22:35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
22:36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
22:37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.
22:38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
22:39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.
22:40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.
22:41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.
22:42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
22:43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.
22:44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me.
22:45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.
22:46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places.
22:47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.
22:48 It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me.
22:49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
22:50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
22:51 He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.
