1 And David spoke to the Lord the words of this song, in the day in which the Lord rescued him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul. 2 And the song was thus: O Lord, my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, 3 my God; he shall be to me my guard, I will trust in him: [he is] my protector, and the horn of my salvation, my helper, and my sure refuge; thou shalt save me from the unjust man. 4 I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 5 For the troubles of death compassed me, the floods of iniquity amazed me: 6 the pangs of death surrounded me, the agonies of death prevented me. 7 When I am afflicted I will call upon the Lord, and will cry to my God, and he shall hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry shalt come into his ears. 8 And the earth was troubled and quaked, and the foundations of heaven were confounded and torn asunder, because the Lord was wroth with them. 9 There went up a smoke in his wrath, and fire out of his mouth devours: coals were kindled at it. 10 And he bowed the heavens, and came down, and [there was] darkness under his feet. 11 And he rode upon the cherubs and did fly, and was seen upon the wings of the wind. 12 And he made darkness his hiding-place; his tabernacle round about him was the darkness of waters, he condensed it with the clouds of the air. 13 At the brightness before him coals of fire were kindled. 14 The Lord thundered out of heaven, and the Most High uttered his voice. 15 And he sent forth arrows, and scattered them, and he flashed lightning, and dismayed them. 16 And the channels of the sea were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuke of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of his anger. 17 He sent from above and took me; he drew me out of many waters. 18 He delivered me from my strong enemies, from them that hated me, for they were stronger than I. 19 The days of my affliction prevented me; but the Lord was my stay. 20 And he brought me into a wide place, and rescued me, because he delighted in me. 21 And the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness; even according to the purity of my hands did he recompense me. 22 Because, I kept the ways of the Lord, and did not wickedly depart from my God. 23 For all his judgments and his ordinances [were] before me: I departed not from them. 24 And I shall be blameless before him, and will keep myself from my iniquity. 25 And the Lord will recompense me according to my righteousness, and according to the purity of my hands in his eye-sight. 26 With the holy thou wilt be holy, and with the perfect man thou will be perfect, 27 and with the excellent thou wilt be excellent, and with the froward thou will be froward. 28 And thou wilt save the poor people, and wilt bring down the eyes of the haughty. 29 For thou, Lord, [art] my lamp, and the Lord shall shine forth to me in my darkness. 30 For by thee shall I run [as] a girded man, and by my God shall I leap over a wall. 31 As for the Mighty One, his way [is] blameless: the word of the Lord [is] strong [and] tried in the fire: he is a protector to all that put their trust in him. 32 Who [is] strong, but the Lord? and who will be a Creator except our God? 33 [It is] the Mighty One who strengthens e with might, and has prepared my way without fault. 34 He makes my feet like hart's feet, and sets me upon the high places. 35 He teaches my hands to war, and has broken a brazen bow by my arm. 36 And thou hast given me the shield of my salvation, and thy propitious dealing has increased me, 37 so as to make room under me for my going, and my legs did not totter. 38 I will pursue my enemies, and will utterly destroy them; and I will not turn again till I have consumed them. 39 And I will crush them, and they shall not rise; and they shall fall under my feet. 40 And thou shalt strengthen me with power for the war; thou shalt cause them that rise up against me to bow down under me. 41 And thou hast caused mine enemies to flee before me, even them that hated me, and thou hast slain them. 42 They shall cry, and there shall be no helper; to the Lord, but he hearkens not to them. 43 And I ground them as the dust of the earth, I beat them small as the mire of the streets. 44 And thou shalt deliver me from the striving of the peoples, thou shalt keep me [to be] the head of the Gentiles: a people which I knew not served me. 45 The strange children feigned [obedience] to me; they hearkened to me as soon as they heard. 46 The strange children shall be cast away, and shall be overthrown out of their hiding places. 47 The Lord lives, and blessed [be] my guardian, and my God, my strong keeper, shall be exalted. 48 The Lord who avenges me [is] strong, chastening the nations under me, 49 and bringing me out from my enemies: and thou shalt set me on high from among those that rise up against me: thou shalt deliver me from the violent man. 50 Therefore will I confess to thee, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and sing to thy name. 51 He magnifies the salvation of his king, and works mercy for his anointed, even for David and for his seed for ever.
ΚΑΙ ἐλάλησε Δαυὶδ τῷ Κυρίῳ τοὺς λόγους τῆς ᾠδῆς ταύτης ἐν ᾗ ἡμέρᾳ ἐξείλετο αὐτὸν Κύριος ἐκ χειρὸς πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκ χειρὸς Σαούλ, 2 καὶ εἶπεν· Κύριε, πέτρα μου καὶ ὀχύρωμά μου καὶ ἐξαιρούμενός με ἐμοί, 3 ὁ Θεός μου φύλαξ μου ἔσται μοι, πεποιθὼς ἔσομαι ἐπ' αὐτῷ, ὑπερασπιστής μου καὶ κέρας σωτηρίας μου, ἀντιλήπτωρ μου καὶ καταφυγή μου σωτηρίας μου, ἐξ ἀδίκου σώσεις με. 4 αἰνετὸν ἐπικαλέσομαι Κύριον καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἐχθρῶν μου σωθήσομαι. 5 ὅτι περιέσχον με συντριμμοὶ θανάτου, χείμαρροι ἀνομίας ἐθάμβησάν με· 6 ὠδῖνες θανάτου ἐκύκλωσάν με, προέφθασάν με σκληρότητες θανάτου. 7 ἐν τῷ θλίβεσθαί με ἐπικαλέσομαι τὸν Κύριον καὶ πρὸς τὸν Θεόν μου βοήσομαι· καὶ ἐπακούσεται ἐκ ναοῦ αὐτοῦ φωνῆς μου, καὶ ἡ κραυγή μου ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν αὐτοῦ. 8 καὶ ἐταράχθη καὶ ἐσείσθη ἡ γῆ, καὶ τὰ θεμέλια τοῦ οὐρανοῦ συνεταράχθησαν καὶ ἐσπαράχθησαν, ὅτι ἐθυμώθη Κύριος αὐτοῖς. 9 ἀνέβη καπνὸς ἐν τῇ ὀργῇ αὐτοῦ, καὶ πῦρ ἐκ στόματος αὐτοῦ κατέδεται, ἄνθρακες ἐξεκαύθησαν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ. 10 καὶ ἔκλινεν οὐρανοὺς καὶ κατέβη, καὶ γνόφος ὑποκάτω τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ. 11 καὶ ἐπεκάθισεν ἐπὶ Χερουβὶμ καὶ ἐπετάσθη καὶ ὤφθη ἐπὶ πτερύγων ἀνέμου. 12 καὶ ἔθετο σκότος ἀποκρυφὴν αὐτοῦ κύκλῳ αὐτοῦ, ἡ σκηνὴ αὐτοῦ σκότος ὑδάτων· ἐπάχυνεν ἐν νεφέλαις ἀέρος. 13 ἀπὸ τοῦ φέγγους ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ἐξεκαύθησαν ἄνθρακες πυρός. 14 ἐβρόντησεν ἐξ οὐρανοῦ Κύριος, καὶ ὁ ὕψιστος ἔδωκε φωνὴν αὐτοῦ 15 καὶ ἀπέστειλε βέλη καὶ ἐσκόρπισεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἤστραψεν ἀστραπὴν καὶ ἐξέστησεν αὐτούς. 16 καὶ ὤφθησαν ἀφέσεις θαλάσσης, καὶ ἀπεκαλύφθη θεμέλια τῆς οἰκουμένης ἐν τῇ ἐπιτιμήσει Κυρίου, ἀπὸ πνοῆς πνεύματος θυμοῦ αὐτοῦ. 17 ἀπέστειλεν ἐξ ὕψους καὶ ἔλαβέ με, εἵλκυσέ με ἐξ ὑδάτων πολλῶν· 18 ἐρρύσατό με ἐξ ἐχθρῶν μου ἰσχύος, ἐκ τῶν μισούντων με, ὅτι ἐκραταιώθησαν ὑπὲρ ἐμέ. 19 προέφθασάν με ἡμέραι θλίψεώς μου καὶ ἐγένετο Κύριος ἐπιστήριγμά μου 20 καὶ ἐξήγαγέ με εἰς πλατυσμὸν καὶ ἐξείλετό με, ὅτι ηὐδόκησεν ἐν ἐμοί. 21 καὶ ἀνταπέδωκέ μοι Κύριος κατὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην μου, καὶ κατὰ τὴν καθαριότητα τῶν χειρῶν μου ἀνταπέδωκέ μοι. 22 ὅτι ἐφύλαξα ὁδοὺς Κυρίου καὶ οὐκ ἠσέβησα ἀπὸ τοῦ Θεοῦ μου, 23 ὅτι πάντα τὰ κρίματα αὐτοῦ κατεναντίον μου, καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ, οὐκ ἀπέστην ἀπ' αὐτῶν. 24 καὶ ἔσομαι ἄμωμος αὐτῷ καὶ προφυλάξομαι ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου. 25 καὶ ἀποδώσει μοι Κύριος κατὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην μου καὶ κατὰ τὴν καθαριότητα τῶν χειρῶν μου ἐνώπιον τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτοῦ. 26 μετὰ ὁσίου ὁσιωθήσῃ καὶ μετὰ ἀνδρὸς τελείου τελειωθήσῃ 27 καὶ μετὰ ἐκλεκτοῦ ἐκλεκτὸς ἔσῃ καὶ μετὰ στρεβλοῦ στρεβλωθήσῃ. 28 καὶ τὸν λαὸν τὸν πτωχὸν σώσεις καὶ ὀφθαλμοὺς ἐπὶ μετεώρων ταπεινώσεις. 29 ὅτι σὺ ὁ λύχνος μου, Κύριε, καὶ Κύριος ἐκλάμψει μοι τὸ σκότος μου. 30 ὅτι ἐν σοὶ δραμοῦμαι μονόζωνος καὶ ἐν τῷ Θεῷ μου ὑπερβήσομαι τεῖχος. 31 ὁ ἰσχυρός, ἄμωμος ἡ ὁδὸς αὐτοῦ, τὸ ρῆμα Κυρίου κραταιόν, πεπυρωμένον, ὑπερασπιστής ἐστι πᾶσι τοῖς πεποιθόσιν ἐπ' αὐτόν. 32 τίς ἰσχυρὸς πλὴν Κυρίου; καὶ τίς κτίστης ἔσται πλὴν τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν; 33 ὁ ἰσχυρὸς ὁ κραταιῶν με δυνάμει, καὶ ἐξετίναξεν ἄμωμον τὴν ὁδόν μου· 34 τιθεὶς τοὺς πόδας μου ὡς ἐλάφων καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ ὕψη ἱστῶν με· 35 διδάσκων χεῖράς μου εἰς πόλεμον καὶ κατάξας τόξον χαλκοῦν ἐν βραχίονί μου. 36 καὶ ἔδωκάς μοι ὑπερασπισμὸν σωτηρίας μου, καὶ ἡ ὑπακοή σου ἐπλήθυνέ με 37 εἰς πλατυσμὸν εἰς τὰ διαβήματά μου ὑποκάτω μου, καὶ οὐκ ἐσαλεύθησαν τὰ σκέλη μου. 38 διώξω ἐχθρούς μου καὶ ἀφανιῶ αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἀναστρέψω ἕως ἂν συντελέσω αὐτούς· 39 καὶ θλάσω αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἀναστήσονται καὶ πεσοῦνται ὑπὸ τοὺς πόδας μου. 40 καὶ ἐνισχύσεις με δυνάμει εἰς πόλεμον, κάμψεις τοὺς ἐπιστανομένους μοι ὑποκάτω μου· 41 καὶ τοὺς ἐχθρούς μου ἔδωκάς μοι νῶτον, τοὺς μισοῦντάς με, καὶ ἐθανάτωσας αὐτούς. 42 βοήσονται, καὶ οὐκ ἔστι βοηθός, πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ οὐκ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτῶν. 43 καὶ ἐλέανα αὐτοὺς ὡς χοῦν γῆς, ὡς πηλὸν ἐξόδων ἐλέπτυνα αὐτούς. 44 καὶ ρύσῃ με ἐκ μάχης λαῶν, φυλάξεις με εἰς κεφαλὴν ἐθνῶν. λαός, ὃν οὐκ ἔγνω, ἐδούλευσάν μοι, 45 υἱοὶ ἀλλότριοι ἐψεύσαντό μοι, εἰς ἀκοὴν ὠτίου ἤκουσάν μου· 46 υἱοὶ ἀλλότριοι ἀπορριφήσονται καὶ σφαλοῦσιν ἐκ τῶν συγκλεισμῶν αὐτῶν. 47 ζῇ Κύριος, καὶ εὐλογητὸς ὁ φύλαξ μου, καὶ ὑψωθήσεται ὁ Θεός μου, ὁ φύλαξ τῆς σωτηρίας μου. 48 ἰσχυρὸς Κύριος ὁ διδοὺς ἐκδικήσεις ἐμοί, παιδεύων λαοὺς ὑποκάτω μου 49 καὶ ἐξάγων με ἐξ ἐχθρῶν μου, καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἐπεγειρομένων μοι ὑψώσεις με, ἐξ ἀνδρὸς ἀδικημάτων ρύσῃ με. 50 διὰ τοῦτο ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι, Κύριε, ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι καὶ ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου ψαλῶ, 51 μεγαλύνων τὰς σωτηρίας βασιλέως αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιῶν ἔλεος τῷ χριστῷ αὐτοῦ, τῷ Δαυὶδ καὶ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος.
