   1: I love thee, O Jehovah, my strength.
   2: Jehovah is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I will take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.
   3: I will call upon Jehovah, who is worthy to be praised: So shall I be saved from mine enemies.
   4: The cords of death compassed me, And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid.
   5: The cords of Sheol were round about me; The snares of death came upon me.
   6: In my distress I called upon Jehovah, And cried unto my God: He heard my voice out of his temple, And my cry before him came into his ears.
   7: Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations also of the mountains quaked And were shaken, because he was wroth.
   8: There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, And fire out of his mouth devoured: Coals were kindled by it.
   9: He bowed the heavens also, and came down; And thick darkness was under his feet.
   10: And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly; Yea, he soared upon the wings of the wind.
   11: He made darkness his hiding-place, his pavilion round about him, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
   12: At the brightness before him his thick clouds passed, Hailstones and coals of fire.
   13: Jehovah also thundered in the heavens, And the Most High uttered his voice, Hailstones and coals of fire.
   14: And he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; Yea, lightnings manifold, and discomfited them.
   15: Then the channels of waters appeared, And the foundations of the world were laid bare, At thy rebuke, O Jehovah, At the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
   16: He sent from on high, he took me; He drew me out of many waters.
   17: He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from them that hated me; for they were too mighty for me.
   18: They came upon me in the day of my calamity; But Jehovah was my stay.
   19: He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because he delighted in me.
   20: Jehovah hath rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
   21: For I have kept the ways of Jehovah, And have not wickedly departed from my God.
   22: For all his ordinances were before me, And I put not away his statutes from me.
   23: I was also perfect with him, And I kept myself from mine iniquity.
   24: Therefore hath Jehovah recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
   25: With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful; With the perfect man thou wilt show thyself perfect;
   26: With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; And with the perverse thou wilt show thyself froward.
   27: For thou wilt save the afflicted people; But the haughty eyes thou wilt bring down.
   28: For thou wilt light my lamp: Jehovah my God will lighten my darkness.
   29: For by thee I run upon a troop; And by my God do I leap over a wall.
   30: As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Jehovah is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in him.
   31: For who is God, save Jehovah? And who is a rock, besides our God,
   32: The God that girdeth me with strength, And maketh my way perfect?
   33: He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet]: And setteth me upon my high places.
   34: He teacheth my hands to war; So that mine arms do bend a bow of brass.
   35: Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation; And thy right hand hath holden me up, And thy gentleness hath made me great.
   36: Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped.
   37: I will pursue mine enemies, and overtake them; Neither will I turn again till they are consumed.
   38: I will smite them through, so that they shall not be able to rise: They shall fall under my feet.
   39: For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
   40: Thou hast also made mine enemies turn their backs unto me, That I might cut off them that hate me.
   41: They cried, but there was none to save; Even unto Jehovah, but he answered them not.
   42: Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind; I did cast them out as the mire of the streets.
   43: Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; Thou hast made me the head of the nations: A people whom I have not known shall serve me.
   44: As soon as they hear of me they shall obey me; The foreigners shall submit themselves unto me.
   45: The foreigners shall fade away, And shall come trembling out of their close places.
   46: Jehovah liveth; and blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation,
   47: Even the God that executeth vengeance for me, And subdueth peoples under me.
   48: He rescueth me from mine enemies; Yea, thou liftest me up above them that rise up against me; Thou deliverest me from the violent man.
   49: Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah, among the nations, And will sing praises unto thy name.
   50: Great deliverance giveth he to his king, And showeth lovingkindness to his anointed, To David and to his seed, for evermore.
