c. David's thanking and praising to God in a song 22:1-51
2 Sam. 22 :1 22:1 aAnd David spoke the words of this 1song to Jehovah on the day when Jehovah bdelivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.
2 Sam. 22 :2 22:2 And he said: Jehovah is my crag and my afortress and my Deliverer;
2 Sam. 22 :3 22:3 1My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My ashield and the bhorn of my salvation, my high retreat and my refuge;
My Savior, You save me from violence.
2 Sam. 22 :4 22:4 I called upon Jehovah, who is worthy of praise,
And from my enemies I was saved.
2 Sam. 22 :5 22:5 For the waves of death encompassed me;
The torrents of destruction assailed me.
2 Sam. 22 :6 22:6 The acords of Sheol surrounded me;
The snares of death confronted me.
2 Sam. 22 :7 22:7 In my distress I acalled upon Jehovah
And called to my God.
And He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry came to His ears.
2 Sam. 22 :8 22:8 Then the earth shook and quaked,
And the foundations of the heavens trembled and shook about,
For He was furious.
2 Sam. 22 :9 22:9 Smoke went up from His nostrils,
And fire from His mouth devoured;
Coals blazed forth from Him.
2 Sam. 22 :10 22:10 He bowed the heavens down and adescended,
And deep darkness was under His feet.
2 Sam. 22 :11 22:11 He rode upon a cherub and did fly;
He was seen upon the wings of the wind.
2 Sam. 22 :12 22:12 And He made darkness pavilions around Him:
Dark waterclouds, thick clouds of the skies.
2 Sam. 22 :13 22:13 Out of the brightness before Him
Fiery coals were kindled.
2 Sam. 22 :14 22:14 Jehovah thundered from heaven,
And the Most High uttered His voice.
2 Sam. 22 :15 22:15 And He sent forth arrows and scattered 1my enemies;
Lightning bolts, and discomfited them.
2 Sam. 22 :16 22:16 The achannels of the sea were seen,
The foundations of the habitable land were laid bare,
By the rebuke of Jehovah,
At the blast of the breath of His nostrils.
2 Sam. 22 :17 22:17 He reached forth from on high; He took me;
He adrew me out of great waters.
2 Sam. 22 :18 22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy
And from those who hate me, for they were too mighty for me.
2 Sam. 22 :19 22:19 They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
But Jehovah became my support.
2 Sam. 22 :20 22:20 He brought me forth to a place broad and free;
He rescued me, for He took delight in me.
2 Sam. 22 :21 22:21 Jehovah has recompensed me according to my righteousness;
According to the cleanness of my hands He has repaid me.
2 Sam. 22 :22 22:22 For I have kept the ways of Jehovah
And have not acted wickedly by turning away from my God.
2 Sam. 22 :23 22:23 For all His judgments were before me,
And as for His statutes, I did not turn away from them.
2 Sam. 22 :24 22:24 I was perfect toward Him,
And I kept myself from my iniquity.
2 Sam. 22 :25 22:25 Therefore Jehovah recompensed me according to my righteousness,
According to my cleanness in His sight.
2 Sam. 22 :26 22:26 With the faithful You show Yourself faithful,
With the perfect man You show Yourself perfect,
2 Sam. 22 :27 22:27 With the pure You show Yourself pure,
And with the perverse You show Yourself contrary.
2 Sam. 22 :28 22:28 And You save the afflicted people,
But Your eyes are upon the haughty that You may bring them down;
2 Sam. 22 :29 22:29 For You are my alamp, O Jehovah.
And Jehovah lights up my darkness;
2 Sam. 22 :30 22:30 For by You I can run up against a troop;
By my God I can leap over a wall.
2 Sam. 22 :31 22:31 As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of Jehovah is atried.
He is a bshield to all who take refuge in Him.
2 Sam. 22 :32 22:32 For who is God other than Jehovah,
And who is a rock except our God?
2 Sam. 22 :33 22:33 God is my strong fortress,
And He 1makes my way perfect;
2 Sam. 22 :34 22:34 aHe makes 1my feet like hinds’ feet
And sets me on my bhigh places;
2 Sam. 22 :35 22:35 aHe teaches my hands to wage war
So that my arms may bend a bronze bow.
2 Sam. 22 :36 22:36 And You have given me the ashield of Your salvation,
And Your condescending gentleness has made me great.
2 Sam. 22 :37 22:37 You have broadened the places of my steps under me,
And my feet have not slipped.
2 Sam. 22 :38 22:38 I pursued my enemies and destroyed them,
And I did not turn back until they were consumed.
2 Sam. 22 :39 22:39 And I devoured them and shattered them, so that they did not rise up;
Indeed, they have fallen under my feet.
2 Sam. 22 :40 22:40 And You girded me with strength for war;
You brought down under me those who rose up against me.
2 Sam. 22 :41 22:41 You also made my enemies turn their back to me,
And I annihilated those who hated me.
2 Sam. 22 :42 22:42 They looked, but there was no one to save them;
They looked to Jehovah, but He did not answer them.
2 Sam. 22 :43 22:43 Then I beat them like the dust of the earth;
I pounded them, I stamped them, like the mud of the streets.
2 Sam. 22 :44 22:44 And You rescued me from the strivings of my people;
You have kept me as the head of the nations;
A people whom I have anot known serves me.
2 Sam. 22 :45 22:45 Foreigners come cringing to me;
At the mere hearing of a report, they obey me;
2 Sam. 22 :46 22:46 Foreigners are discouraged
And 1come quaking out of their fortresses.
2 Sam. 22 :47 22:47 Jehovah alives; and blessed be my rock,
And exalted be God, the rock of my salvation,
2 Sam. 22 :48 22:48 The God who executes vengeance for me
And brings down peoples under me,
2 Sam. 22 :49 22:49 And who brings me forth from my enemies.
Yes, You exalted me above those who rise up against me;
From the violent man You delivered me.
2 Sam. 22 :50 22:50 aTherefore I give thanks to You among the nations, O Jehovah;
And I sing psalms to Your name.
2 Sam. 22 :51 22:51 It is He who magnifies salvation to His aking
And executes lovingkindness to His banointed,
To David and to his cseed forever.
