Psalm 18

1  I love you, O Lord my strength. 
   The Lord is my crag, my fortress and my deliverer,
2  My God, my rock in whom I take refuge, 
   my shield, the horn of my salvation and my stronghold.
3  I cried to the Lord in my anguish 
   and I was saved from my enemies.
4  The cords of death entwined me 
   and the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5  The cords of the Pit fastened about me 
   and the snares of death entangled me.
6  In my distress I called upon the Lord 
   and cried out to my God for help.
7  He heard my voice in his temple 
   and my cry came to his ears.
8  The earth trembled and quaked; 
   the foundations of the mountains shook;
      they reeled because he was angry.
9  Smoke rose from his nostrils
      and a consuming fire went out of his mouth; 
   burning coals blazed forth from him.
10  He parted the heavens and came down 
   and thick darkness was under his feet.
11  He rode upon the cherubim and flew; 
   he came flying on the wings of the wind.
12  He made darkness his covering round about him, 
   dark waters and thick clouds his pavilion.
13  From the brightness of his presence, through the clouds 
   burst hailstones and coals of fire.
14  The Lord also thundered out of heaven; 
   the Most High uttered his voice
      with hailstones and coals of fire.
15  He sent out his arrows and scattered them; 
   he hurled down lightnings and put them to flight.
16  The springs of the ocean were seen,
      and the foundations of the world uncovered 
   at your rebuke, O Lord,
      at the blast of the breath of your displeasure.
17  He reached down from on high and took me; 
   he drew me out of the mighty waters.
18  He delivered me from my strong enemy, 
   from foes that were too mighty for me.
19  They came upon me in the day of my trouble; 
   but the Lord was my upholder.
20  He brought me out into a place of liberty; 
   he rescued me because he delighted in me.
21  The Lord rewarded me after my righteous dealing; 
   according to the cleanness of my hands he recompensed me,
22  Because I had kept the ways of the Lord 
   and had not gone wickedly away from my God,
23  For I had an eye to all his laws, 
   and did not cast out his commandments from me.
24  I was also wholehearted before him 
   and kept myself from iniquity;
25  Therefore the Lord rewarded me
      after my righteous dealing, 
   and according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
26  With the faithful you show yourself faithful; 
   with the true you show yourself true;
27  With the pure you show yourself pure, 
   but with the crooked you show yourself perverse.
28  For you will save a lowly people 
   and bring down the high looks of the proud.
29  You also shall light my candle; 
   the Lord my God shall make my darkness to be bright.
30  By your help I shall run at an enemy host; 
   with the help of my God I can leap over a wall.
