Psalm Chapters 17 - 21 KJV (King James Version)
17:1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.17:5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.17:7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.17:10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;17:12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:17:14 From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.18:1 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.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.18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.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.18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.18:12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.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.18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.18:22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.18:27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.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.18:31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?18:32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.18:34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.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.18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.18:41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.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.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.18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.18:47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.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.18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.20:1 The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;20:2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;20:3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.20:4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.20:6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.20:9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.21:1 The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.21:3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.21:4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.21:5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.21:6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.21:7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.21:8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.21:10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.21:12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
