2 Samuel 22:1-6

David’s Song of Deliverance

1And David spoke a  to the  Lord the words of this song on the day when the  Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. 2 b  He said,

c  “The  Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
3 d  my
Septuagint (compare Psalm 18:2); Hebrew lacks  my
God, my rock f  in whom I take refuge,
g  my shield, and h  the horn of my salvation,
i  my stronghold and j  my refuge,
my savior; you save me from violence.
4I call upon the  Lord, who is k  worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.
5 l  “For the waves of death encompassed me,
the torrents of destruction assailed me;
Or terrified me

6 n  the cords of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me.
