The LORD also thundered in the heavens, And the Most High uttered His voice, Hailstones and coals of fire.
He sent out His arrows, and scattered them, And lightning flashes in abundance, and routed them.
Then the channels of water appeared, And the foundations of the world were exposed By Your rebuke, LORD, At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.
He sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters.
He saved me from my strong enemy, And from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster, But the LORD was my support.
He also brought me out into an open place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me.
The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has repaid me.
For I have kept the ways of the LORD, And have not acted wickedly against my God.
For all His judgments were before me, And I did not put away His statutes from me.
I was also blameless with Him, And I kept myself from my wrongdoing.
Therefore the LORD has repaid me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in His eyes.
With the faithful You show Yourself faithful; With the blameless You prove Yourself blameless;
With the pure You show Yourself pure, And with the crooked You show Yourself astute.
For You save an afflicted people, But You humiliate haughty eyes.
For You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness.
For by You I can run at a troop of warriors; And by my God I can leap over a wall.
As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is refined; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God,
The God who encircles me with strength, And makes my way blameless?
He makes my feet like deer’s feet,
And sets me up on my high places.
He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
