Book of Psalms Chapter 18

PSALMS 18:1 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

PSALMS 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

PSALMS 18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

PSALMS 18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

PSALMS 18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

PSALMS 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

PSALMS 18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

PSALMS 18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

PSALMS 18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

PSALMS 18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

PSALMS 18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

PSALMS 18:12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

PSALMS 18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

PSALMS 18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

PSALMS 18:15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

PSALMS 18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

PSALMS 18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

PSALMS 18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.

PSALMS 18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

PSALMS 18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

PSALMS 18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

PSALMS 18:22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

PSALMS 18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

PSALMS 18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

PSALMS 18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

PSALMS 18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

PSALMS 18:27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

PSALMS 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

PSALMS 18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

PSALMS 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

PSALMS 18:31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?

PSALMS 18:32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

PSALMS 18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.

PSALMS 18:34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

PSALMS 18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

PSALMS 18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

PSALMS 18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

PSALMS 18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

PSALMS 18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

PSALMS 18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

PSALMS 18:41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.

PSALMS 18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

PSALMS 18:43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

PSALMS 18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

PSALMS 18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

PSALMS 18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

PSALMS 18:47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

PSALMS 18:48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

PSALMS 18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

PSALMS 18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
