1 22:1 Chapter 22 This song is also found in Ps. 18. David sang this song to the Lord when the Lord saved him from Saul and all his other enemies. 2The Lord is my Rock, my fortress, my place of safety. 3He is my God, the Rock I run to for protection. He is my shield; by his power I am saved.22:3 by his power I am saved Literally, “He is the horn of my salvation.” He is my hiding place, my place of safety, high in the hills. He is my savior, the one who rescues me from the cruel enemy. 4I called to the Lord for help, and he saved me from my enemies. He is worthy of my praise! 5Waves of death were crashing around me. A deadly flood was carrying me away. 6The ropes of the grave wrapped around me. Death set its trap right there in front of me. 7In my trouble I called to the Lord. Yes, I cried out to my God for help. There in his temple he heard my voice. He heard my cry for help. 8The earth shook and shivered. The foundations of heaven trembled. They shook because he was angry! 9Smoke came from his nose. Burning flames came from his mouth. Red-hot coals fell from him. 10He tore open the sky and came down. He stood on a thick, dark cloud. 11He flew across the sky, riding on a Cherub angel, gliding on the wings of the wind. 12He wrapped himself in darkness that covered him like a tent. He was hidden by dark clouds filled with water. 13Out of the brightness before him, flashes of lightning came down. 14The Lord thundered from the sky. God Most High let his voice be heard. 15He scattered the enemy with his arrows— the lightning bolts that threw them into confusion. 16The Lord shouted his command, and a powerful wind began to blow.22:16 and … blow Or “and a blast of breath came from his nose.” Then the bottom of the sea could be seen, and the earth’s foundations were uncovered. 17The Lord reached down from above and grabbed me. He pulled me from the deep water. 18He saved me from my powerful enemies, who hated me. They were too strong for me, so he saved me. 19They attacked me in my time of trouble, but the Lord was there to support me. 20He was pleased with me, so he rescued me. He took me to a safe place. 21The Lord rewarded me for doing what is right. He was good to me because I am innocent. Proverbs 23:24 The father of a good person is very happy. A wise child brings him joy.
