<< Psalms 18:1 >>



  • 2 Samuel 22 1-2 Samuel 22 51
    David spoke the words of this song to the Lord on the day the Lord rescued him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.He said: The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer,my God, my mountain where I seek refuge. My shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold, my refuge, and my Savior, You save me from violence.I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I was saved from my enemies.For the waves of death engulfed me; the torrents of destruction terrified me.The ropes of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me.I called to the Lord in my distress; I called to my God. From His temple He heard my voice, and my cry for help reached His ears.Then the earth shook and quaked; the foundations of the heavens trembled; they shook because He burned with anger.Smoke rose from His nostrils, and consuming fire came from His mouth; coals were set ablaze by it.He parted the heavens and came down, a dark cloud beneath His feet.He rode on a cherub and flew, soaring on the wings of the wind.He made darkness a canopy around Him, a gathering of water and thick clouds.From the radiance of His presence, flaming coals were ignited.The Lord thundered from heaven; the Most High projected His voice.He shot arrows and scattered them; He hurled lightning bolts and routed them.The depths of the sea became visible, the foundations of the world were exposed at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of His nostrils.He reached down from heaven and took hold of me; He pulled me out of deep waters.He rescued me from my powerful enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me.They confronted me in the day of my distress, but the Lord was my support.He brought me out to a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me.The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; He repaid me according to the cleanness of my hands.For I have kept the ways of the Lord and have not turned from my God to wickedness.Indeed, I have kept all His ordinances in mind and have not disregarded His statutes.I was blameless before Him and kept myself from sinning.So the Lord repaid me according to my righteousness, according to my cleanness in His sight.With the faithful You prove Yourself faithful; with the blameless man You prove Yourself blameless;with the pure You prove Yourself pure, but with the crooked You prove Yourself shrewd.You rescue an afflicted people, but Your eyes are set against the proud— You humble them.Lord, You are my lamp; the Lord illuminates my darkness.With You I can attack a barrier, and with my God I can leap over a wall.God— His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is pure. He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.For who is God besides the Lord? And who is a rock? Only our God.God is my strong refuge; He makes my way perfect.He makes my feet like the feet of a deer and sets me securely on the heights.He trains my hands for war; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.You have given me the shield of Your salvation; Your help exalts me.You widen a place beneath me for my steps, and my ankles do not give way.I pursue my enemies and destroy them; I do not turn back until they are wiped out.I wipe them out and crush them, and they do not rise; they fall beneath my feet.You have clothed me with strength for battle; You subdue my adversaries beneath me.You have made my enemies retreat before me; I annihilate those who hate me.They look, but there is no one to save them— they look to the Lord, but He does not answer them.I pulverize them like dust of the earth; I crush them and trample them like mud in the streets.You have freed me from the feuds among my people; You have appointed me the head of nations; a people I had not known serve me.Foreigners submit to me grudgingly; as soon as they hear, they obey me.Foreigners lose heart and come trembling from their fortifications.The Lord lives— may my rock be praised! God, the rock of my salvation, is exalted.God— He gives me vengeance and casts down peoples under me.He frees me from my enemies. You exalt me above my adversaries; You rescue me from violent men.Therefore I will praise You, Lord, among the nations; I will sing about Your name.He is a tower of salvation for His king; He shows loyalty to His anointed, to David and his descendants forever.
  • Isaiah 12:1-6
    On that day you will say:“ I will praise You, Lord, although You were angry with me. Your anger has turned away, and You have had compassion on me.Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust Him and not be afraid, for Yah, the Lord, is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation.”You will joyfully draw water from the springs of salvation,and on that day you will say:“ Give thanks to Yahweh; proclaim His name! Celebrate His works among the peoples. Declare that His name is exalted.Sing to Yahweh, for He has done glorious things. Let this be known throughout the earth.Cry out and sing, citizen of Zion, for the Holy One of Israel is among you in His greatness.”
  • 1 Samuel 2 1-1 Samuel 2 10
    Hannah prayed: My heart rejoices in the Lord; my horn is lifted up by the Lord. My mouth boasts over my enemies, because I rejoice in Your salvation.There is no one holy like the Lord. There is no one besides You! And there is no rock like our God.Do not boast so proudly, or let arrogant words come out of your mouth, for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and actions are weighed by Him.The bows of the warriors are broken, but the feeble are clothed with strength.Those who are full hire themselves out for food, but those who are starving hunger no more. The woman who is childless gives birth to seven, but the woman with many sons pines away.The Lord brings death and gives life; He sends some to Sheol, and He raises others up.The Lord brings poverty and gives wealth; He humbles and He exalts.He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile. He seats them with noblemen and gives them a throne of honor. For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; He has set the world on them.He guards the steps of His faithful ones, but the wicked perish in darkness, for a man does not prevail by his own strength.Those who oppose the Lord will be shattered; He will thunder in the heavens against them. The Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give power to His king; He will lift up the horn of His anointed.

  • Psalms 34:19
    Many adversities come to the one who is righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
  • Psalms 116:1-6
    I love the Lord because He has heard my appeal for mercy.Because He has turned His ear to me, I will call out to Him as long as I live.The ropes of death were wrapped around me, and the torments of Sheol overcame me; I encountered trouble and sorrow.Then I called on the name of Yahweh:“ Yahweh, save me!”The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is compassionate.The Lord guards the inexperienced; I was helpless, and He saved me.
  • Psalms 144:1-2
    May the Lord, my rock, be praised, who trains my hands for battle and my fingers for warfare.He is my faithful love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer. He is my shield, and I take refuge in Him; He subdues my people under me.

  • Exodus 15:1-21
    Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord. They said: I will sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalted; He has thrown the horse and its rider into the sea.The Lord is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. This is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him.The Lord is a warrior; Yahweh is His name.He threw Pharaoh’s chariots and his army into the sea; the elite of his officers were drowned in the Red Sea.The floods covered them; they sank to the depths like a stone.Lord, Your right hand is glorious in power. Lord, Your right hand shattered the enemy.You overthrew Your adversaries by Your great majesty. You unleashed Your burning wrath; it consumed them like stubble.The waters heaped up at the blast of Your nostrils; the currents stood firm like a dam. The watery depths congealed in the heart of the sea.The enemy said:“ I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil. My desire will be gratified at their expense. I will draw my sword; my hand will destroy them.”But You blew with Your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.Lord, who is like You among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, revered with praises, performing wonders?You stretched out Your right hand, and the earth swallowed them.You will lead the people You have redeemed with Your faithful love; You will guide them to Your holy dwelling with Your strength.When the peoples hear, they will shudder; anguish will seize the inhabitants of Philistia.Then the chiefs of Edom will be terrified; trembling will seize the leaders of Moab; the inhabitants of Canaan will panic;and terror and dread will fall on them. They will be as still as a stone because of Your powerful arm until Your people pass by, Lord, until the people whom You purchased pass by.You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of Your possession; Lord, You have prepared the place for Your dwelling; Lord, Your hands have established the sanctuary.The Lord will reign forever and ever!When Pharaoh’s horses with his chariots and horsemen went into the sea, the Lord brought the waters of the sea back over them. But the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground.Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her with their tambourines and danced.Miriam sang to them: Sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalted; He has thrown the horse and its rider into the sea.
  • Judges 5:1-31
    On that day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang:When the leaders lead in Israel, when the people volunteer, praise the Lord.Listen, kings! Pay attention, princes! I will sing to the Lord; I will sing praise to the Lord God of Israel.Lord, when You came from Seir, when You marched from the fields of Edom, the earth trembled, the heavens poured rain, and the clouds poured water.The mountains melted before the Lord, even Sinai before the Lord, the God of Israel.In the days of Shamgar son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the main ways were deserted because travelers kept to the side roads.Villages were deserted, they were deserted in Israel, until I, Deborah, arose, a mother in Israel.Israel chose new gods, then war was in the gates. Not a shield or spear was seen among 40,000 in Israel.My heart is with the leaders of Israel, with the volunteers of the people. Praise the Lord!You who ride on white donkeys, who sit on saddle blankets, and who travel on the road, give praise!Let them tell the righteous acts of the Lord, the righteous deeds of His warriors in Israel, with the voices of the singers at the watering places. Then the Lord’s people went down to the gates.“ Awake! Awake, Deborah! Awake! Awake, sing a song! Arise, Barak, and take hold of your captives, son of Abinoam!”The survivors came down to the nobles; the Lord’s people came down to me with the warriors.Those with their roots in Amalek came from Ephraim; Benjamin came with your people after you. The leaders came down from Machir, and those who carry a marshal’s staff came from Zebulun.The princes of Issachar were with Deborah; Issachar was with Barak. They set out at his heels in the valley. There was great searching of heart among the clans of Reuben.Why did you sit among the sheepfolds listening to the playing of pipes for the flocks? There was great searching of heart among the clans of Reuben.Gilead remained beyond the Jordan. Dan, why did you linger at the ships? Asher remained at the seashore and stayed in his harbors.Zebulun was a people risking their lives, Naphtali also, on the heights of the battlefield.Kings came and fought. Then the kings of Canaan fought at Taanach by the waters of Megiddo, but they took no spoil of silver.The stars fought from the heavens; the stars fought with Sisera from their courses.The river Kishon swept them away, the ancient river, the river Kishon. March on, my soul, in strength!The horses’ hooves then hammered— the galloping, galloping of his stallions.“ Curse Meroz,” says the Angel of the Lord,“ Bitterly curse her inhabitants, for they did not come to help the Lord, to help the Lord against the mighty warriors.”Jael is most blessed of women, the wife of Heber the Kenite; she is most blessed among tent-dwelling women.He asked for water; she gave him milk. She brought him curdled milk in a majestic bowl.She reached for a tent peg, her right hand, for a workman’s mallet. Then she hammered Sisera— she crushed his head; she shattered and pierced his temple.He collapsed, he fell, he lay down at her feet; he collapsed, he fell at her feet; where he collapsed, there he fell— dead.Sisera’s mother looked through the window; she peered through the lattice, crying out:“ Why is his chariot so long in coming? Why don’t I hear the hoofbeats of his horses?”Her wisest princesses answer her; she even answers herself:“ Are they not finding and dividing the spoil— a girl or two for each warrior, the spoil of colored garments for Sisera, the spoil of an embroidered garment or two for my neck?”Lord, may all your enemies perish as Sisera did. But may those who love Him be like the rising of the sun in its strength. And the land was peaceful 40 years.
