2 Samuel - Chapter 22
2 Samuel Chapters
1 David addressed the words of this song to Yahweh, when Yahweh had delivered him from the clutches of all his enemies and from the clutches of Saul.
2 He said: Yahweh is my rock and my fortress,
6 Sheol's snares on every side of me, Death's traps lying ahead of me,
19 They assailed me on my day of disaster, but Yahweh was there to support me,
25 Hence Yahweh repaid me for acting uprightly because he could see I was pure.
30 with you I storm the rampart with my God I can scale any wall.
31 This God, his way is blameless; the word of Yahweh is refined in the furnace, for he alone is the shield of all who take refuge in him.
32 For who is God but Yahweh, who is a rock but our God:
33 this God who girds me with strength, who makes my way free from blame,
40 You have girded me with strength for the fight, bent down my assailants beneath me,
47 Life to Yahweh! Blessed be my rock! Exalted be the God of my salvation,
48 the God who gives me vengeance and crushes the peoples under me,
49 who takes me away from my enemies. You lift me high above those who attack me, you deliver me from the man of violence.
50 For this I will praise you, Yahweh, among the nations, and sing praise to your name.
51 He saves his king, time after time, displays faithful love for his anointed, for David and his heirs for ever.
