1I love you, O Lord, my strength.
2The Lord 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 stronghold.
3I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, so I shall be saved from my enemies.
4The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of perdition assailed me;
5the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me.
6In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
