2 Samuel 22:1-7
1And David spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul: 2And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; 3The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. 4I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. 5When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. 6The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me; 7In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears
Do you have enemies? Do you maybe need deliverance out of the hand of your enemies like David? David was protected from Saul. Saul was a king who at one time used to murder Christians for thier beliefs. (He later was used by God and became an important Christian in the bible.)
David Praised the LORD. He is his rock, fortress, deliverer, shield, his saviour, horn of his salvation, high tower, refuge.
