Psalm 18:1-50 (KJV)
[1] I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

[2] The Lord is my rock, and my fortress,
and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in
whom I will trust; my buckler, and the
horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

[3] I will call upon the Lord, who is
worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved
from mine enemies.

[4] The sorrows of death compassed me,
and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

[5] The sorrows of hell compassed me
about: the snares of death prevented me.

[6] In my distress I called upon the Lord,
and cried unto my God: he heard my voice
out of his temple, and my cry came before
him, even into his ears.

[7] Then the earth shook and trembled; the
foundations also of the hills moved 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 darkness was under his feet.

[10] And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly:
yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

[11] He made darkness his secret place; his
pavilion round about him were dark waters
and thick clouds of the skies.

[12] At the brightness that was before him
his thick clouds passed, hail stones and
coals of fire.

[13] The Lord also thundered in the heavens,
and the Highest gave his voice; hail
stones and coals of fire.

[14] Yea, he sent out his arrows, and
scattered them; and he shot out lightnings,
and discomfited them.

[15] Then the channels of waters were seen,
and the foundations of the world were
discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at
the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

[16] He sent from above, he took me,
he drew me out of many waters.

[17] He delivered me from my strong enemy,
and from them which hated me: for they
were too strong for me.

[18] They prevented me in the day of my
calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

[19] He brought me forth also into a large
place; he delivered me, because he
delighted in me.

[20] The Lord 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 the Lord,
and have not wickedly departed from my God.

[22] For all his judgments were before me,
and I did not put away his statutes from me.

[23] I was also upright before him, and I
kept myself from mine iniquity.

[24] Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me
according to my righteousness, according to
the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

[25] With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself
merciful; with an upright man thou wilt
shew thyself upright;

[26] With the pure thou wilt shew thyself
pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew
thyself froward.

[27] For thou wilt save the afflicted people;
but wilt bring down high looks.

[28] For thou wilt light my candle:
the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

[29] For by thee I have run through a troop;
and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

[30] As for God, his way is perfect: the
word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to
all those that trust in him.

[31] For who is God save the Lord? or
who is a rock save our God?

[32] It is 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 a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

[35] Thou hast also given me the shield
of thysalvation: and thy right hand hath
holden me up, and thy gentleness hath
made me great.

[36] Thou hast enlarged my steps under me,
that my feet did not slip.

[37] I have pursued mine enemies, and
overtaken them: neither did I turn again
till they were consumed.

[38] I have wounded them that they were not
able to rise: they are fallen 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 given me the necks of
mine enemies; that I might destroy them
that hate me.

[41] They cried, but there was none to
save them: even unto the Lord, 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 dirt in the streets.

[43] Thou hast delivered me from the
strivings of the people; and thou hast
made me the head of the heathen: a people
whom I have not known shall serve me.

[44] As soon as they hear of me, they
shall obey me: the strangers shall submit
themselves unto me.

[45] The strangers shall fade away, and
be afraid out of their close places.

[46] The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock;
and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

[47] It is God that avengeth me, and
subdueth the people under me.

[48] He delivereth me from mine enemies:
yea, thou liftest me up above those that
rise up against me: thou hast delivered
me from the violent man.

[49] Therefore will I give thanks unto
thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and
sing praises unto thy name.

[50] Great deliverance giveth he to his
king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed,
to David, and to his seed for evermore.
