Book 09 : NEVIIM - II SAMUEL - Chapter 022


And David spoke unto HaShem the words of this song in the day that HaShem delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul


and he said: HaShem is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer


The G-d who is my rock, in Him I take refuge; my shield, and my horn of salvation, my high tower, and my refuge; my saviour, Thou savest me from violence


Praised, I cry, is HaShem, and I am saved from mine enemies


For the waves of Death compassed me. The floods of Belial assailed me


The cords of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of Death confronted me


In my distress I called upon HaShem, yea, I called unto my G-d; and out of His temple He heard my voice, and my cry did enter into His ears


Then the earth did shake and quake, the foundations of heaven did tremble; they were shaken, because He was wroth


Smoke arose up in His nostrils, and fire out of His mouth did devour; coals flamed forth from Him


He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and thick darkness was under His feet


And He rode upon a cherub, and did fly; yea, He was seen upon the wings of the wind


And He made darkness pavilions round about Him, gathering of waters, thick clouds of the skies


At the brightness before Him coals of fire flamed forth


HaShem thundered from heaven, and the Most High gave forth His voice


And He sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them


And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were laid bare by the rebuke of HaShem, at the blast of the breath of His nostrils


He sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters


He delivered me from mine enemy most strong, from them that hated me, for they were too mighty for me


They confronted me in the day of my calamity; but HaShem was a stay unto me


He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me


HaShem rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath He recompensed me


For I have kept the ways of HaShem, and have not wickedly departed from my G-d


For all His ordinances were before me; and as for His statutes, I did not depart from them


And I was single-hearted toward Him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity


Therefore hath HaShem recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to my cleanness in His eyes


With the merciful Thou dost show Thyself merciful, with the upright man Thou dost show Thyself upright


With the pure Thou dost show myself pure; and with the crooked Thou dost show Thyself subtle


And the afflicted people Thou dost save; but Thine eyes are upon the haughty, that Thou mayest humble them


For Thou art my lamp, O HaShem; and HaShem doth lighten my darkness


For by Thee I run upon a troop; by my G-d do I scale a wall


As for G-d, His way is perfect; the word of HaShem is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in Him


For who is G-d, save HaShem? and who is a Rock, save our G-d


The G-d who is my strong fortress, and who letteth my way go forth straight


Who maketh my feet like hinds', and setteth me upon my high places


Who traineth my hands for war, so that mine arms do bend a bow of brass


Thou hast also given me Thy shield of salvation; and Thy condescension hath made me great


Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped


I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; neither did I turn back till they were consumed


And I have consumed them, and smitten them through, that they cannot arise; yea, they are fallen under my feet


For Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle; Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me


Thou hast also made mine enemies turn their backs unto me; yea, them that hate me, that I might cut them off


They looked, but there was none to save; even unto HaShem, but He answered them not


Then did I beat them small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the streets, and did tread them down


Thou also hast delivered me from the contentions of my people; Thou hast kept me to be the head of the nations; a people whom I have not known serve me


The sons of the stranger dwindle away before me; as soon as they hear of me, they obey me


The sons of the stranger fade away, and come halting out of their close places


HaShem liveth, and blessed be my Rock; and exalted be the G-d, my Rock of salvation


Even the G-d that executeth vengeance for me, and bringeth down peoples under me


And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies; yea, Thou liftest me up above them that rise up against me; Thou deliverest me from the violent man


Therefore I will give thanks unto Thee, O HaShem, among the nations, and will sing praises unto Thy name


A tower of salvation is He to His king; and showeth mercy to His anointed, to David and to his seed, for evermore
