Psalm 18:6–18

In my distressy I called to the Lord;z

I cried to my God for help.

From his temple he heard my voice;a

my cry cameb before him, into his ears.

The earth trembledc and quaked,d

and the foundations of the mountains shook;e

they trembled because he was angry.f

Smoke rose from his nostrils;g

consuming fireh came from his mouth,

burning coalsi blazed out of it.

He parted the heavens and came down;j

dark cloudsk were under his feet.

10 He mounted the cherubiml and flew;

he soaredm on the wings of the wind.n

11 He made darkness his covering,o his canopyp around him—

the dark rain clouds of the sky.

12 Out of the brightness of his presenceq clouds advanced,

with hailstonesr and bolts of lightning.s

13 The Lord thunderedt from heaven;

the voice of the Most High resounded.d

14 He shot his arrowsu and scattered the enemy,

with great bolts of lightningv he routed them.w

15 The valleys of the sea were exposed

and the foundationsx of the earth laid bare

at your rebuke,y Lord,

at the blast of breath from your nostrils.z

16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;

he drew me out of deep waters.a

17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,b

from my foes, who were too strong for me.c

18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,d

but the Lord was my support.e
