Psalms 18

David praiseth God for his manifold and marvellous blessings.

Psalms 18:1 {To the chiefe musicion, [a psalme] of Dauid, the seruant of the LORD, who spake vnto the LORD the words of this song, in the day [that] the LORD deliuered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,} I will loue thee, O LORD, my strength. Psalms 18:2 The LORD [is] my rocke, and my fortresse, and my deliuerer: my God, my strength in whome I will trust, my buckler, and the horne of my saluation, [and] my high tower. Psalms 18:3 I will call vpon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saued from mine enemies. Psalms 18:4 The sorrowes of death compassed me, and the floods of vngodly men made me afraid. Psalms 18:5 The sorrowes of hell compassed me about: the snares of death preuented me. Psalms 18:6 In my distresse I called vpon the LORD, and cryed vnto my God: hee heard my voyce out of his temple, and my crie came before him, [euen] into his eares. Psalms 18:7 Then the earth shooke and trembled; the foundations also of the hilles mooued and were shaken, because hee was wroth. Psalms 18:8 There went vp a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth deuoured, coales were kindled by it. Psalms 18:9 He bowed the heauens also, and came downe: and darkenesse [was] vnder his feet. Psalms 18:10 And he rode vpon a Cherub, and did flie: yea he did flie vpon the wings of the wind. Psalms 18:11 He made darkenes his secret place: his pauilion round about him, [were] darke waters, [and] thicke cloudes of the skies. Psalms 18:12 At the brightnes [that was] before him his thicke clouds passed, haile [stones] and coales of fire. Psalms 18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heauens, and the highest gaue his voyce; hailestones and coales of fire. Psalms 18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrowes, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. Psalms 18:15 Then the chanels of waters were seene, and the foundations of the world were discouered: at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. Psalms 18:16 He sent from aboue, he tooke me, he drew me out of many waters. Psalms 18:17 He deliuered me from my strong enemie, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. Psalms 18:18 They preuented me in the day of my calamitie: but the LORD was my stay. Psalms 18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place: he deliuered me, because he delighted in me. Psalms 18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousnesse, according to the cleannesse of my hands hath hee recompensed me. Psalms 18:21 For I haue kept the wayes of the LORD, and haue not wickedly departed from my God. Psalms 18:22 For all his iudgements [were] before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me. Psalms 18:23 I was also vpright before him: and I kept my selfe from mine iniquity. Psalms 18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousnesse, according to the cleannesse of my hands in his eye-sight. Psalms 18:25 With the mercifull thou wilt shew thy selfe mercifull, with an vpright man thou wilt shew thy selfe vpright. Psalms 18:26 With the pure thou wilt shewe thy selfe pure, and with the froward thou wilt shew thy selfe froward. Psalms 18:27 For thou wilt saue the afflicted people: but wilt bring downe high lookes. Psalms 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkenesse. Psalms 18:29 For by thee I haue run through a troupe? and by my God haue I leaped ouer a wall. Psalms 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. Psalms 18:31 For who [is] God saue the LORD? or who [is] a rocke saue our God? Psalms 18:32 It is God that girdeth mee with strength, and maketh my way perfect. Psalms 18:33 Hee maketh my feete like hindes [feete], and setteth me vpon my high places. Psalms 18:34 He teacheth my hands to warre, so that a bow of steele is broken by mine armes. Psalms 18:35 Thou hast also giuen me the shield of thy saluation: and thy right hand hath holden me vp, and thy gentlenesse hath made me great. Psalms 18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steppes vnder me; that my feete did not slippe. Psalms 18:37 I haue pursued mine enemies, and ouertaken them: neither did I turne againe till they were consumed. Psalms 18:38 I haue wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen vnder my feete. Psalms 18:39 For thou hast girded mee with strength vnto the battell: thou hast subdued vnder me, those that rose vp against me. Psalms 18:40 Thou hast also giuen mee the neckes of mine enemies: that I might destroy them that hate me. Psalms 18:41 They cried, but there was none to saue [them: euen] vnto the LORD, but he answered them not. Psalms 18:42 Then did I beate them small as the dust before the winde: I did cast them out, as the dirt in the streetes. Psalms 18:43 Thou hast deliuered me from the striuings of the people, [and] thou hast made mee the head of the heathen: a people [whom] I haue not knowen, shall serue me. Psalms 18:44 As soone as they heare of mee, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselues vnto me. Psalms 18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places. Psalms 18:46 The LORD liueth, and blessed be my rocke: and let the God of my saluation be exalted. Psalms 18:47 It is God that auengeth mee, and subdueth the people vnder me. Psalms 18:48 He deliuereth me from mine enemies: yea thou liftest mee vp aboue those that rise vp against me; thou hast deliuered me from the violent man. Psalms 18:49 Therfore will I giue thankes vnto thee, (O LORD) among the heathen: and sing prayses vnto thy name. Psalms 18:50 Great deliuerance giueth he to his King: and sheweth mercy to his Annointed, to Dauid, and to his seede for euermore.
