Psalm 18:1–6

The Lord Is My Rock and My Fortress

 

1I | love you,*

O | Lord, my strength.

 

2The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my de- | liverer,*

my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my | stronghold.

 

3I call upon the Lord,

who is worthy | to be praised,*

and I am saved from my | enemies.

 

4The cords of death en- | compassed me;*

the torrents of destruction as- | sailed me;

 

5the cords of Sheol en- | tangled me;*

the snares of death con- | fronted me.

 

6In my distress I called upon the Lord;

to my God I | cried for help.*

From his temple he heard my voice,

and my cry to him | reached his ears.
