3 I call upon the Lord, who is oworthy to be praised,
4 pThe cords of death encompassed me;
5 pthe cords of Sheol entangled me;
6 rIn my distress I called upon the Lord;
From his stemple he heard my voice,
7 Then the earth treeled and rocked;
8 Smoke went up from his nostrils,2
and devouring ufire from his mouth;
xthick darkness was under his feet.
he came swiftly on zthe wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his covering, his acanopy around him,
thick clouds bdark with water.
chailstones and coals of fire broke through his clouds.
13 The Lord also dthundered in the heavens,
and the Most High uttered his evoice,
14 And he sent out his farrows and scattered them;
he flashed forth lightnings and grouted them.
15 Then hthe channels of the sea were seen,
at your irebuke, O Lord,
at the blast of jthe breath of your nostrils.
16 He ksent from on high, he took me;
for they were ntoo mighty for me.
19 He brought me out into oa broad place;
he rescued me, because he pdelighted in me.
20 The Lord dealt with me qaccording to my righteousness;
according to rthe cleanness of my hands he rewarded me.
21 For I have skept the ways of the Lord,
23 I was ublameless before him,
25 With vthe merciful you show yourself merciful;
and with wthe crooked you make yourself seem tortuous.
27 For you save xa humble people,
but ythe haughty eyes you bring down.
28 For it is you who light my zlamp;
the word of the Lord dproves true;
31 For gwho is God, but the Lord?
And who is ha rock, except our God?—
32 the God who iequipped me with strength
and made my way jblameless.
33 He made my feet like the feet of a kdeer
and set me secure on lthe heights.
34 He mtrains my hands for war,
and your right hand nsupported me,
and your ogentleness made me great.
36 You pgave a wide place for my steps under me,
41 rThey cried for help, but there was none to save;
42 I beat them fine as sdust before the wind;
I cast them out like tthe mire of the streets.
43 You delivered me from ustrife with the people;
you made me vthe head of the nations;
wpeople whom I had not known served me.
45 xForeigners lost heart
and zcame trembling out of their fortresses.
and asubdued peoples under me,
yes, you bexalted me above those who rose against me;
you rescued me from cthe man of violence.
49 dFor this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
and esing to your name.
50 Great fsalvation he brings to his king,
and shows steadfast love to his ganointed,
to hDavid and his offspring forever.
