16 Then the ravines of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were exposed by the rebuke of Adonai, at a blast of the breath of His nostrils. 17 He reached down from on high and He took hold of me. He drew me out of mighty waters. 18 He delivered me from my powerful enemy, from those who hated me— for they were much stronger than me. 19 They came against me in the day of my calamity, but Adonai was my support. 20 He brought me out to a wide-open place. He rescued me since He delighted in me.
21 Adonai rewarded me for my righteousness. For the cleanness of my hands He repaid me. 22 For I kept the ways of Adonai, and did not turn wickedly from my God. 23 For all His judgments are before me. As for His rulings, I do not turn away from them. 24 I also had integrity with Him, and kept myself from my sin. 25 So Adonai rewarded me for my righteousness, according to my cleanness in His eyes.
26 With the loyal You deal loyally. With the blameless You are blameless. 27 With the pure You show Yourself pure, but with the crooked You show Yourself shrewd. 28 You save lowly people. But Your eyes are on the haughty— You will humble them.
33 God is my strong fortress and He keeps my way blameless. 34 He makes my legs like a deer and sets me on my heights. 35 Who trains my hands for battle, so my arms can bend a bronze bow. 36 You gave me Your shield of salvation. and Your answering has made me great. 37 You broaden my steps beneath me, so my feet have not slipped.
38 I pursue my enemies and destroy them. I will not return till they are consumed. 39 I consumed them and crushed them till they cannot rise; yes, they fall beneath my feet. 40 You girded me with strength for battle. You made those rising up against me bow down before me. 41 You also made my enemies turn their backs to me. I cut off those who hate me. 42 They looked, but there was none to save —to Adonai, but He did not answer them.
47 Adonai lives! And blessed be my Rock! Exalted be God—the Rock of my salvation! 48 God—He gives me vengeance and brings down peoples under me. 49 He brings me out from my enemies. Indeed You lift me up above those who rise up against me. You deliver me from the violent man.
50 Therefore I praise You among the nations, Adonai, and will sing praises to Your name. 51 He is a tower of salvation to His king, He shows loyal love to His anointed— to David and to his seed, forever. 2 Samuel 22
