2He said: The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, 3my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; you save me from violence. 4I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. 14The Lord thundered from heaven; the Most High uttered his voice. 15He sent out arrows, and scattered themlightning, and routed them. 16Then the channels of the sea were seen, the foundations of the world were laid bare at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. 17He reached from on high, he took me, he drew me out of mighty waters. 18He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me; for they were too mighty for me. 19They came upon me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my stay. 20He brought me out into a broad place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 26With the loyal you show yourself loyal; with the blameless you show yourself blameless; 27with the pure you show yourself pure, and with the crooked you show yourself perverse. 28You deliver a humble people, but your eyes are upon the haughty to bring them down. 29Indeed, you are my lamp, O Lord, the Lord lightens my darkness. 30By you I can crush a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. 31This Godhis way is perfect; the promise of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all who take refuge in him. 32For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God? 33The God who has girded me with strength has opened wide my path. 34He made my feet like the feet of deer, and set me secure on the heights. 35He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 36You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your help has made me great. 37You have made me stride freely, and my feet do not slip; 47The Lord lives! Blessed be my rock, and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation, 48the God who gave me vengeance and brought down peoples under me, 49who brought me out from my enemies; you exalted me above my adversaries, you delivered me from the violent. 50For this I will extol you, O Lord, among the nations, and sing praises to your name. 51He is a tower of salvation for his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever.
