Psalms 18

David praiseth God for his manifold and marvellous blessings.

Psalms 18:1 {To the chief Musician. Of the servant of Yahweh, of David,—who spake unto Yahweh the words of this song,—in the day when Yahweh had rescued him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul; and he said:—} I will love thee, O Yahweh my strength! Psalms 18:2 Yahweh, was my mountain crag and my stronghold, and my deliverer: My GOD, was my rock, I sought refuge in him, My shield, and my horn of salvation, my high tower. Psalms 18:3 As one worthy to be praised, called I on Yahweh,—And, from my foes, was I saved. Psalms 18:4 The meshes of death encompassed me, The torrents of perdition, made me afraid; Psalms 18:5 The meshes of hades, had surrounded me, The snares of death, had confronted me, Psalms 18:6 In my distress, called I on Yahweh, And, unto my God, made outcry for help, He heard, out of his temple, my voice, And my outcry for help came before him—entered into his ears! Psalms 18:7 Then did the earth shake and quake, Even, the foundations of the mountains, were deeply moved, Yea they did shake, because he was angry. Psalms 18:8 There went up smoke in his nostrils, and, a fire out of his mouth, devoured, Live coals, were kindled from it: Psalms 18:9 Then he stretched out the heaven, and came down,—and, thick gloom, was under his feet; Psalms 18:10 Then he rode on a cherub, and flew, and darted on the wings of the wind; Psalms 18:11 Made darkness his hiding-place, Round about him—his pavilion, Darkness of waters, clouds of vapours. Psalms 18:12 Out of the brightness before him, his clouds rolled along, hail, and live coals of fire. Psalms 18:13 Then did Yahweh thunder in the heavens, and the Highest uttered his voice,—hail, and live coals of fire. Psalms 18:14 And he sent forth his arrows and scattered them, yea, lightnings, he shot out, and confused them. Psalms 18:15 Then appeared the channels of waters, were uncovered the foundations of the world,—At thy rebuke O Yahweh, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. Psalms 18:16 He sent from on high, he took me,—he drew me out of many waters. Psalms 18:17 He rescued me from my foe, in his might, and from them who hated me, because they were too strong for me: Psalms 18:18 They confronted me, in the day of my necessity, Then became Yahweh my stay: Psalms 18:19 And brought me out, into a large place, he delivered me, because he delighted in me. Psalms 18:20 Yahweh rewarded me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands, he repaid me; Psalms 18:21 For I had kept the ways of Yahweh, and not broken away from my God; Psalms 18:22 For, all his regulations, were before me, and, his statutes, did I not put from me: Psalms 18:23 So became I blameless with him, and kept myself from mine iniquity. Psalms 18:24 Yahweh therefore repaid me according to my righteousness, according to the pureness of my hands, before his eyes. Psalms 18:25 With the loving, thou didst show thyself loving,—With the blameless man, thou didst show thyself blameless; Psalms 18:26 With the pure, thou didst show thyself pure, But, with the perverse, thou didst show thyself ready to contend. Psalms 18:27 For, as for thee, an oppressed people, thou didst save, but, looks that were lofty, layedst thou low; Psalms 18:28 For, thou, didst light up my lamp, Yahweh my God, enlightened my darkness; Psalms 18:29 For, by thee, I ran through a troop, and, by my God, I leapt over a wall. Psalms 18:30 As for GOD, blameless is his way, The speech of Yahweh hath been proved, A shield, he is to all who seek refuge in him. Psalms 18:31 For who is a GOD, save Yahweh? And who is a Rock, save our God? Psalms 18:32 The GOD who girded me with strength, and set forth, as blameless, my way: Psalms 18:33 Planting my feet like hinds' [feet], yea, on my high places, he caused me to stand: Psalms 18:34 Teaching my hands to war,—so that a bow of bronze was bent by mine arms. Psalms 18:35 Thus didst thou grant me, as a shield, thy salvation,—and, thy right hand, sustained me, and, thy condescension, made me great. Psalms 18:36 Thou didst widen my stepping-places under me, so that, mine ankles, faltered not. Psalms 18:37 I pursued my foes, and overtook them, and returned not, till they were consumed: Psalms 18:38 I crushed them, and they were unable to rise, They fell under my feet. Psalms 18:39 Thus didst thou gird me with strength, for the battle, Thou subduedst mine assailants under me. Psalms 18:40 As for my foes, thou didst give me their neck, and, as for them who hated me, I destroyed them. Psalms 18:41 They cried out, but there was none to save, unto Yahweh, but he answered them not. Psalms 18:42 Then did I beat them in pieces, like dust on the face of the wind. Like the mire in the lanes, did I scatter them. Psalms 18:43 Thus didst thou rescue me from the contentions of a people,—didst appoint me to be the head of nations, A people I had not known, served me: Psalms 18:44 At the hearing of the ear, they submitted to me, the sons of the foreigner, came cringing unto me: Psalms 18:45 The sons of the foreigner, lost heart, and came quaking out of their fortresses. Psalms 18:46 Yahweh liveth and, blessed, be my Rock, yea, exalted, be the God of my salvation: Psalms 18:47 The GOD, who hath avenged me,—and subjugated peoples under me: Psalms 18:48 Who hath delivered me from my foes,—Yea, from mine assailants, hast thou set me on high, From the man of violence, hast thou rescued me. Psalms 18:49 For this cause, will I praise thee among the nations, O Yahweh, and, to thy Name, will I sweep the strings:— Psalms 18:50 Who hath made great the victories of his King,—and shown lovingkindness to his Anointed One, To David and to his Seed, Unto times age-abiding.
