II Samuelis 22 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

22 locutus est autem David Domino verba carminis huius in die qua liberavit eum Dominus de manu omnium inimicorum suorum et de manu Saul

et ait Dominus petra mea et robur meum et salvator meus

Deus meus fortis meus sperabo in eum scutum meum et cornu salutis meae elevator meus et refugium meum salvator meus de iniquitate liberabis me

laudabilem invocabo Dominum et ab inimicis meis salvus ero

quia circumdederunt me contritiones mortis torrentes Belial terruerunt me

funes inferi circumdederunt me praevenerunt me laquei mortis

in tribulatione mea invocabo Dominum et ad Deum meum clamabo et exaudiet de templo suo vocem meam et clamor meus veniet ad aures eius

commota est et contremuit terra fundamenta montium concussa sunt et conquassata quoniam iratus est

ascendit fumus de naribus eius et ignis de ore eius voravit carbones incensi sunt ab eo

10 et inclinavit caelos et descendit et caligo sub pedibus eius

11 et ascendit super cherubin et volavit et lapsus est super pinnas venti

12 posuit tenebras in circuitu suo latibulum cribrans aquas de nubibus caelorum

13 prae fulgore in conspectu eius succensi sunt carbones ignis

14 tonabit de caelis Dominus et Excelsus dabit vocem suam

15 misit sagittas et dissipavit eos fulgur et consumpsit eos

16 et apparuerunt effusiones maris et revelata sunt fundamenta orbis ab increpatione Domini ab inspiratione spiritus furoris eius

17 misit de excelso et adsumpsit me extraxit me de aquis multis

18 liberavit me ab inimico meo potentissimo ab his qui oderant me quoniam robustiores me erant

19 praevenit me in die adflictionis meae et factus est Dominus firmamentum meum

20 et eduxit me in latitudinem liberavit me quia placuit ei

21 retribuet mihi Dominus secundum iustitiam meam et secundum munditiam manuum mearum reddet mihi

22 quia custodivi vias Domini et non egi impie a Deo meo

23 omnia enim iudicia eius in conspectu meo et praecepta eius non amovi a me

24 et ero perfectus cum eo et custodiam me ab iniquitate mea

25 et restituet Dominus mihi secundum iustitiam meam et secundum munditiam manuum mearum in conspectu oculorum suorum

26 cum sancto sanctus eris et cum robusto perfectus

27 cum electo electus eris et cum perverso perverteris

28 et populum pauperem salvum facies oculisque tuis excelsos humiliabis

29 quia tu lucerna mea Domine et Domine inluminabis tenebras meas

30 in te enim curram accinctus in Deo meo transiliam murum

31 Deus inmaculata via eius eloquium Domini igne examinatum scutum est omnium sperantium in se

32 quis est deus praeter Dominum et quis fortis praeter Deum nostrum

33 Deus qui accingit me fortitudine et conplanavit perfectam viam meam

34 coaequans pedes meos cervis et super excelsa mea statuens me

35 docens manus meas ad proelium et conponens quasi arcum aereum brachia mea

36 dedisti mihi clypeum salutis tuae et mansuetudo mea multiplicavit me

37 dilatabis gressus meos subtus me et non deficient tali mei

38 persequar inimicos meos et conteram et non revertar donec consumam eos

39 consumam eos et confringam ut non consurgant cadent sub pedibus meis

40 accinxisti me fortitudine ad proelium incurvabis resistentes mihi sub me

41 inimicos meos dedisti mihi dorsum odientes me et disperdam eos

42 clamabunt et non erit qui salvet ad Dominum et non exaudiet eos

43 delebo eos ut pulverem terrae quasi lutum platearum comminuam eos atque conpingam

44 salvabis me a contradictionibus populi mei custodies in caput gentium populus quem ignoro serviet mihi

45 filii alieni resistent mihi auditu auris oboedient mihi

46 filii alieni defluxerunt et contrahentur in angustiis suis

47 vivit Dominus et benedictus Deus meus et exaltabitur Deus fortis salutis meae

48 Deus qui das vindictas mihi et deicis populos sub me

49 qui educis me ab inimicis meis et a resistentibus mihi elevas me a viro iniquo liberabis me

50 propterea confitebor tibi Domine in gentibus et nomini tuo cantabo

51 magnificanti salutes regis sui et facienti misericordiam christo suo David et semini eius in sempiternum

2 Samuel 22 New International Version (NIV)

David’s Song of Praise

22 David sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
    my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    my shield[a] and the horn[b] of my salvation.
He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—
    from violent people you save me.

“I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
    and have been saved from my enemies.
The waves of death swirled about me;
    the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
The cords of the grave coiled around me;
    the snares of death confronted me.

“In my distress I called to the Lord;
    I called out to my God.
From his temple he heard my voice;
    my cry came to his ears.
The earth trembled and quaked,
    the foundations of the heavens[c] shook;
    they trembled because he was angry.
Smoke rose from his nostrils;
    consuming fire came from his mouth,
    burning coals blazed out of it.
10 He parted the heavens and came down;
    dark clouds were under his feet.
11 He mounted the cherubim and flew;
    he soared[d] on the wings of the wind.
12 He made darkness his canopy around him—
    the dark[e] rain clouds of the sky.
13 Out of the brightness of his presence
    bolts of lightning blazed forth.
14 The Lord thundered from heaven;
    the voice of the Most High resounded.
15 He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy,
    with great bolts of lightning he routed them.
16 The valleys of the sea were exposed
    and the foundations of the earth laid bare
at the rebuke of the Lord,
    at the blast of breath from his nostrils.

17 “He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
    he drew me out of deep waters.
18 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
    from my foes, who were too strong for me.
19 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
    but the Lord was my support.
20 He brought me out into a spacious place;
    he rescued me because he delighted in me.

21 “The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness;
    according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.
22 For I have kept the ways of the Lord;
    I am not guilty of turning from my God.
23 All his laws are before me;
    I have not turned away from his decrees.
24 I have been blameless before him
    and have kept myself from sin.
25 The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
    according to my cleanness[f] in his sight.

26 “To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
    to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
27 to the pure you show yourself pure,
    but to the devious you show yourself shrewd.
28 You save the humble,
    but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.
29 You, Lord, are my lamp;
    the Lord turns my darkness into light.
30 With your help I can advance against a troop[g];
    with my God I can scale a wall.

31 “As for God, his way is perfect:
    The Lord’s word is flawless;
    he shields all who take refuge in him.
32 For who is God besides the Lord?
    And who is the Rock except our God?
33 It is God who arms me with strength[h]
    and keeps my way secure.
34 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
    he causes me to stand on the heights.
35 He trains my hands for battle;
    my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
36 You make your saving help my shield;
    your help has made[i] me great.
37 You provide a broad path for my feet,
    so that my ankles do not give way.

38 “I pursued my enemies and crushed them;
    I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
39 I crushed them completely, and they could not rise;
    they fell beneath my feet.
40 You armed me with strength for battle;
    you humbled my adversaries before me.
41 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight,
    and I destroyed my foes.
42 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them—
    to the Lord, but he did not answer.
43 I beat them as fine as the dust of the earth;
    I pounded and trampled them like mud in the streets.

44 “You have delivered me from the attacks of the peoples;
    you have preserved me as the head of nations.
People I did not know now serve me,
45     foreigners cower before me;
    as soon as they hear of me, they obey me.
46 They all lose heart;
    they come trembling[j] from their strongholds.

47 “The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock!
    Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior!
48 He is the God who avenges me,
    who puts the nations under me,
49     who sets me free from my enemies.
You exalted me above my foes;
    from a violent man you rescued me.
50 Therefore I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
    I will sing the praises of your name.

51 “He gives his king great victories;
    he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed,
    to David and his descendants forever.”
