18:1 <> I love you, Yahweh, my strength.

18:2 Yahweh is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.

18:3 I call on Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised; And I am saved from my enemies.

18:4 The cords of death surrounded me. The floods of ungodliness made me afraid.

18:5 The cords of Sheol were round about me; The snares of death came on me.

18:6 In my distress I called on Yahweh, And cried to my God. He heard my voice out of his temple, My cry before him came into his ears.

18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled. The foundations also of the mountains quaked and were shaken, Because he was angry.

18:8 Smoke went out of his nostrils. Consuming fire came out of his mouth. Coals were kindled by it.

18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down. Thick darkness was under his feet.

18:10 He rode on a cherub, and flew. Yes, he soared on the wings of the wind.

18:11 He made darkness his hiding-place, his pavilion around him, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.

18:12 At the brightness before him his thick clouds passed, Hailstones and coals of fire.

18:13 Yahweh also thundered in the sky, The Most High uttered his voice: Hailstones and coals of fire.

18:14 He sent out his arrows, and scattered them; Yes, great lightning bolts, and routed them.

18:15 Then the channels of waters appeared, The foundations of the world were laid bare at your rebuke, Yahweh, At the blast of the breath of your nostrils.

18:16 He sent from on high. He took me. He drew me out of many waters.

18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me; for they were too mighty for me.

18:18 They came on me in the day of my calamity, But Yahweh was my support.

18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place. He delivered me, because he delighted in me.

18:20 Yahweh has rewarded me according to my righteousness. According to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed me.

18:21 For I have kept the ways of Yahweh, And have not wickedly departed from my God.

18:22 For all his ordinances were before me. I didn't put away his statutes from me.

18:23 I was also blameless with him. I kept myself from my iniquity.

18:24 Therefore Yahweh has rewarded me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

18:25 With the merciful you will show yourself merciful. With the perfect man, you will show yourself perfect.

18:26 With the pure, you will show yourself pure. With the crooked you will show yourself shrewd.

18:27 For you will save the afflicted people, But the haughty eyes you will bring down.

18:28 For you will light my lamp, Yahweh. My God will light up my darkness.

18:29 For by you, I advance through a troop. By my God, I leap over a wall.

18:30 As for God, his way is perfect. The word of Yahweh is tried. He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him.

18:31 For who is God, except Yahweh? Who is a rock, besides our God,

18:32 The God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect?

18:33 He makes my feet like deer's feet, And sets me on my high places.

18:34 He teaches my hands to war; So that my arms bend a bow of bronze.

18:35 You have also given me the shield of your salvation. Your right hand sustains me. Your gentleness has made me great.

18:36 You have enlarged my steps under me, My feet have not slipped.

18:37 I will pursue my enemies, and overtake them. Neither will I turn again until they are consumed.

18:38 I will strike them through, so that they will not be able to rise. They shall fall under my feet.

18:39 For you have girded me with strength to the battle. You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.

18:40 You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, That I might cut off those who hate me.

18:41 They cried, but there was none to save; Even to Yahweh, but he didn't answer them.

18:42 Then I beat them small as the dust before the wind. I cast them out as the mire of the streets.

18:43 You have delivered me from the strivings of the people. You have made me the head of the nations. A people whom I have not known shall serve me.

18:44 As soon as they hear of me they shall obey me. The foreigners shall submit themselves to me.

18:45 The foreigners shall fade away, And shall come trembling out of their close places.

18:46 Yahweh lives; and blessed be my rock. Exalted be the God of my salvation,

18:47 Even the God who executes vengeance for me, And subdues peoples under me.

18:48 He rescues me from my enemies. Yes, you lift me up above those who rise up against me. You deliver me from the violent man.

18:49 Therefore I will give thanks to you, Yahweh, among the nations, And will sing praises to your name.

18:50 He gives great deliverance to his king, And shows loving kindness to his anointed, To David and to his seed, forevermore.
