Psalms chapter 18:1-6 Dear lord, I love you, God—you make me strong. God you are bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight My God—the high crag where I run for dear life hiding behind the boulders safe in the granite hideout. I sing to God, the Praise-Lofty, and find myself safe and saved. The hangman’s noose was tight at my throat; devil waters rushed over me. Hell’s ropes cinched me tight; death traps barred every exit. A hostile world! I call to God, I cry to God to help me. From his palace he hears my call; my cry brings me right into his presence—a private audience! Amen.
