Psalms 18 Part 3 Audio
Psalms 18:30 – 18:50
30 As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
31 For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God,
32 The God who girds me with strength And makes my way blameless?
33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, And sets me upon my high places.
34 He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great.
36 You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped.
37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them, And I did not turn back until they were consumed.
38 I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; They fell under my feet.
39 For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.
40 You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, And I destroyed those who hated me.
41 They cried for help, but there was none to save, Even to the LORD, but He did not answer them.
42 Then I beat them fine as the dust before the wind; I emptied them out as the mire of the streets.
43 You have delivered me from the contentions of the people; You have placed me as head of the nations; A people whom I have not known serve me.
44 As soon as they hear, they obey me; Foreigners submit to me.
45 Foreigners fade away, And come trembling out of their fortresses.
The Lord Lives
46 The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation,
47 The God who executes vengeance for me, And subdues peoples under me.
48 He delivers me from my enemies; Surely You lift me above those who rise up against me; You rescue me from the violent man.
49 Therefore I will give thanks to You among the nations, O LORD, And I will sing praises to Your name.
50 He gives great deliverance to His king, And shows lovingkindness to His anointed, To David and his descendants forever.
