A Psalm of Deliverance (Ps.18:1-3)

I will love thee, O LORD, (Jehovah, the Self-Existent One)

my strength. (my help)

The LORD is my rock, (my lofty fortress, my stronghold)

and my fortress, (my castle, my defense, He surrounds me with His protection)

and my deliverer; (He causes me to escape from harm, He carries me away to safety)

my God, (my Strength, my chief, He is the mightiest of all)

my strength, (He is my refuge)

in whom I will trust; (I choose to trust Him)

my buckler, (God is my protector)

and the horn of my salvation, (His power against the enemy makes me safe)

and my high tower. (He is the place I can run to for safety, the place where the enemy cannot get to me, I am hid in Christ)

I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. (I will call upon the One who has proved Himself to be worthy)
