1 And Dauid spake the woordes of this song vnto the Lord, what time the Lord had deliuered him out of the handes of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul.
3 God is my strength, in him will I trust: my shielde, and the horne of my saluation, my hie tower and my refuge: my Sauiour, thou hast saued me from violence.
7 But in my tribulation did I call vpon the Lord, and crie to my God, and he did heare my voyce out of his temple, and my crie did enter into his eares.
8 Then the earth trembled and quaked: the foundations of the heauens mooued and shooke, because he was angrie.
12 And hee made darkenesse a Tabernacle round about him, euen the gatherings of waters, and the cloudes of the ayre.
16 The chanels also of the sea appeared, euen the foundations of the worlde were discouered by the rebuking of the Lord, and at the blast of the breath of his nostrels.
18 He deliuered me from my strong enemie, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
21 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousnesse: according to the purenesse of mine handes he recompensed me.
25 Therefore the Lord did reward me according to my righteousnesse, according to my purenesse before his eyes.
26 With the godly thou wilt shewe thy selfe godly: with the vpright man thou wilt shew thy selfe vpright.
27 With the pure thou wilt shewe thy selfe pure, and with the frowarde thou wilt shew thy selfe frowarde.
31 The way of God is vncorrupt: the word of the Lord is tryed in the fire: he is a shield to all that trust in him.
36 Thou hast also giuen me the shield of thy saluation, and thy louing kindnesse hath caused me to increase.
38 I haue pursued mine enemies and destroyed them, and haue not turned againe vntill I had consumed them.
39 Yea, I haue consumed them and thrust them through, and they shall not arise, but shall fall vnder my feete.
40 For thou hast girded me with power to battell, and them that arose against me, hast thou subdued vnder me.
42 They looked about, but there was none to saue them, euen vnto the Lord, but he answered them not.
43 Then did I beate them as small as the dust of the earth: I did treade them flat as the clay of the streete, and did spread them abroad.
44 Thou hast also deliuered me from the contentions of my people: thou hast preserued me to be the head ouer nations: the people which I knewe not, doe serue me.
47 Let the Lord liue, and blessed be my strength: and God, euen the force of my saluation be exalted.
49 And rescueth me from mine enemies: (thou also hast lift me vp from them that rose against me, thou hast deliuered me from the cruell man.
51 He is the tower of saluation for his King, and sheweth mercie to his anointed, euen to Dauid, and to his seede for euer.
