In my distress I called on the Lord,
    and cried for help to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
    and my cry for help came before Him to His ears.
Then the earth shook and quaked;
    the foundations of the hills also moved;
    they reeled because His anger burned.
Smoke went up out of His nostrils,
    and fire from His mouth devoured;
    coals were kindled by it.
He bent the heavens and came down,
    and darkness was under His feet.
10 He rode on a cherub, and flew;
    He flew swiftly on the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness His secret place;
    His pavilion was surrounding Him,
    dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
12 At the brightness before Him His thick clouds passed by,
    hailstones and coals of fire.
13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens,
    and the Most High gave His voice,
    hailstones and coals of fire.
14 He sent out His arrows and scattered them,
    and He shot out lightning and distressed them.
15 Then the channels of waters appeared,
    and the foundations of the world were discovered
at Your rebuke, O Lord,
    at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.

16 He sent from above, He took me;
    He drew me out of many waters.
17 He delivered me from my strong enemy,
    and from those who hated me,
    for they were too strong for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
    but the Lord was my support.
19 He also brought me forth into a large place;
    He delivered me because He delighted in me.
