THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

18:1I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

18:2The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

18:3I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

18:4The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

18:5The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

18:6In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

18:7Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

18:8There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

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

18:10And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

18:11He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

18:12At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

18:13The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

18:14Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

18:15Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

18:16He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

18:17He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18:18They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.

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