1 And David spoke to the Lord the words of this canticle, in the day that the Lord delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul, 2 And he said: The Lord is my rock, and my strength, and my saviour. 3 God is my strong one, in him will I trust: my shield, and the horn of my salvation: he lifteth me up, and is my refuge: my saviour, thou wilt deliver me from iniquity. 4 I will call on the Lord who is worthy to be praised: and I shall be saved from my enemies. 5 For the pangs of death have surrounded me: the floods of Belial have made me afraid.
6 The cords of hell compassed me: the snares of death prevented me. 7 In my distress I will call upon the Lord, and I will cry to my God: and he will hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry shall come to his ears. 8 The earth shook and trembled, the foundations of the mountains were moved, and shaken, because he was angry with them. 9 A smoke went up from his nostrils, and a devouring fire out of his mouth: coals were kindled by it. 10 He bowed the heavens, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
