The Horn of my Salvation – 2 Samuel 22

2 Samuel 22:1 And David spake unto the LORD the words of this  song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of  the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:  

2 Samuel 22:2 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my  fortress, and my deliverer; 

2 Samuel 22:3 The God of my rock; in  him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my  salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou  savest me from violence. 

2 Samuel 22:4 I will call on the LORD,  who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine  enemies. 

2 Samuel 22:5 When the waves of death compassed me,  the floods of ungodly men made me afraid; 

2 Samuel 22:6 The  sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death  prevented me; 

2 Samuel 22:7 In my distress I called upon the  LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out  of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears. 

2 Samuel 22:8  Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of  heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth. 

2 Samuel 22:9  There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his  mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 

2 Samuel 22:10 He  bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness  was under his feet.

2 Samuel 22:11 And he rode upon a cherub,  and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.  

2 Samuel 22:12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him,  dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. 

2 Samuel 22:13  Through the brightness before him were coals of fire  kindled. 

2 Samuel 22:14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and  the most High uttered his voice. 

2 Samuel 22:15 And he sent out  arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited  them. 

2 Samuel 22:16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the  foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of  the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. 

2 Samuel 22:17  He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many  waters; 

2 Samuel 22:18 He delivered me from my strong enemy,  and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for  me. 

2 Samuel 22:19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity:  but the LORD was my stay. 

2 Samuel 22:20 He brought me forth  also into a large place: he delivered me, because he  delighted in me. 

2 Samuel 22:21 The LORD rewarded me  according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness  of my hands hath he recompensed me. 

2 Samuel 22:22 For I have  kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly  departed from my God. 

2 Samuel 22:23 For all his judgments  were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart  from them. 

2 Samuel 22:24 I was also upright before him, and have  kept myself from mine iniquity. 

2 Samuel 22:25 Therefore the  LORD hath recompensed me according to my  righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight.  

2 Samuel 22:26 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful,  and with the upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright.  

2 Samuel 22:27 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with  the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury. 

2 Samuel 22:28 And  the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon  the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down. 

2 Samuel 22:29  For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will  lighten my darkness. 

2 Samuel 22:30 For by thee I have run  through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.  

2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the  LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in  him. 

2 Samuel 22:32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who  is a rock, save our God? 

2 Samuel 22:33 God is my strength  and power: and he maketh my way perfect. 

2 Samuel 22:34 He  maketh my feet like hinds feet: and setteth me upon my  high places. 

2 Samuel 22:35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. 

2 Samuel 22:36 Thou hast  also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness  hath made me great. 

2 Samuel 22:37 Thou hast enlarged my steps  under me; so that my feet did not slip. 

2 Samuel 22:38 I have  pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not  again until I had consumed them. 

2 Samuel 22:39 And I have  consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not  arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet. 

2 Samuel 22:40 For thou  hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up  against me hast thou subdued under me. 

2 Samuel 22:41 Thou hast  also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might  destroy them that hate me. 

2 Samuel 22:42 They looked, but there  was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered  them not. 

2 Samuel 22:43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust  of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and  did spread them abroad. 

2 Samuel 22:44 Thou also hast delivered  me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to  be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall  serve me. 

2 Samuel 22:45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto  me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.   

2 Samuel 22:46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid  out of their close places. 

2 Samuel 22:47 The LORD liveth; and  blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of  my salvation. 

2 Samuel 22:48 It is God that avengeth me, and that  bringeth down the people under me, 

2 Samuel 22:49 And that  bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted  me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou  hast delivered me from the violent man. 

2 Samuel 22:50 Therefore  I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen,  and I will sing praises unto thy name. 

2 Samuel 22:51 He is the  tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his  anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.  KJV
