Psalms 18

David praiseth God for his manifold and marvellous blessings.

Psalms 18:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid the seruant of the Lorde, which spake vnto the Lord the wordes of this song (in the day that the Lorde deliuered him from the hande of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul) and sayd,} I will loue thee dearely, O Lord my strength. Psalms 18:2 The Lorde is my rocke, and my fortresse, and he that deliuereth me, my God and my strength: in him will I trust, my shield, the horne also of my saluation, and my refuge. Psalms 18:3 I will call vpon the Lorde, which is worthie to be praysed: so shall I be safe from mine enemies. Psalms 18:4 The sorowes of death compassed me, and the floods of wickednes made me afraide. Psalms 18:5 The sorowes of the graue haue compassed me about: the snares of death ouertooke me. Psalms 18:6 But in my trouble did I call vpon the Lord, and cryed vnto my God: he heard my voyce out of his Temple, and my crye did come before him, euen into his eares. Psalms 18:7 Then the earth trembled, and quaked: the foundations also of the mountaines mooued and shooke, because he was angrie. Psalms 18:8 Smoke went out at his nostrels, & a consuming fire out of his mouth: coales were kindled thereat. Psalms 18:9 He bowed the heauens also & came downe, and darkenes was vnder his feete. Psalms 18:10 And he rode vpon Cherub and did flie, and he came flying vpon the wings of the winde. Psalms 18:11 He made darkenes his secrete place, and his pauilion round about him, euen darkenesse of waters, and cloudes of the ayre. Psalms 18:12 At the brightnes of his presence his clouds passed, haylestones and coles of fire. Psalms 18:13 The Lord also thundred in the heauen, and the Highest gaue his voyce, haylestones and coales of fire. Psalms 18:14 Then hee sent out his arrowes and scattred them, and he increased lightnings and destroyed them. Psalms 18:15 And the chanels of waters were seene, and the foundations of the worlde were discouered at thy rebuking, O Lorde, at the blasting of the breath of thy nostrels. Psalms 18:16 He hath sent downe from aboue and taken mee: hee hath drawen mee out of many waters. Psalms 18:17 He hath deliuered mee from my strong enemie, and from them which hate 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 Hee brought mee foorth also into a large place: hee deliuered mee because hee fauoured me. Psalms 18:20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousnes: according to the purenes of mine hands he recompensed me: Psalms 18:21 Because I kept the wayes of the Lord, and did not wickedly against my God. Psalms 18:22 For all his Lawes were before mee, and I did not cast away his commaundements from mee. Psalms 18:23 I was vpright also with him, & haue kept me from my wickednes. Psalms 18:24 Therefore the Lorde rewarded me according to my righteousnesse, and according to the purenes of mine hands in his sight. Psalms 18:25 With the godly thou wilt shewe thy selfe godly: with the 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 shewe thy selfe froward. Psalms 18:27 Thus thou wilt saue the poore people, and wilt cast downe the proude lookes. Psalms 18:28 Surely thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God wil lighten my darkenes. Psalms 18:29 For by thee I haue broken through an hoste, and by my God I haue leaped ouer a wall. Psalms 18:30 The way of God is vncorrupt: the worde of the Lord is tried in the fire: he is a shield to all that trust in him. Psalms 18:31 For who is God besides the Lord? And who is mightie saue our God? Psalms 18:32 God girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way vpright. Psalms 18:33 He maketh my feete like hindes feete, and setteth me vpon mine high places. Psalms 18:34 He teacheth mine hands to fight: so that a bowe of brasse is broken with mine armes. Psalms 18:35 Thou hast also giuen me the shield of thy saluation, and thy right hand hath stayed me, and thy louing kindenes hath caused me to increase. Psalms 18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps vnder mee, and mine heeles haue not slid. Psalms 18:37 I haue pursued mine enemies, and taken them, and haue not turned againe till I had consumed them. 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 me with strength to battell: them, that rose against me, thou hast subdued vnder me. Psalms 18:40 And thou hast giuen me the neckes of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me. Psalms 18:41 They cryed but there was none to saue them, euen vnto the Lorde, but hee answered them not. Psalms 18:42 Then I did beate them small as the dust before the winde: I did treade them flat as the clay in the streetes. Psalms 18:43 Thou hast deliuered me from the contentions of the people: thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people, whom I haue not knowen, shal serue me. Psalms 18:44 As soone as they heare, they shall obey me: the strangers shall be in subiection to me. Psalms 18:45 Strangers shall shrinke away, and feare in their priuie chambers. Psalms 18:46 Let the Lorde liue, and blessed be my strength, and the God of my saluation be exalted. Psalms 18:47 It is God that giueth me power to auenge me, and subdueth the people vnder me. Psalms 18:48 O my deliuerer from mine enemies, euen thou hast set mee vp from them, that rose against me: thou hast deliuered mee from the cruell man. Psalms 18:49 Therefore I will prayse thee, O Lorde, among the nations, and wil sing vnto thy Name. Psalms 18:50 Great deliuerances giueth hee vnto his King, and sheweth mercie to his anoynted, euen to Dauid, and to his seede for euer.
