2 Samuel

2 Samuel 22:36-37

36 “You have also given me the shield of Your salvation;
Your gentleness has made me great.
37 You enlarged my path under me;
So my feet did not slip.



You make your saving help my shield.
Your help has made me great.

You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your help and gentleness make me great.

You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.
You enlarge my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped.

2 Samuel 22:32-35

32 “For who is God, except the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God?
33 God is my strength and power,
And He makes my way perfect.
34 He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
And sets me on my high places.
35 He teaches my hands to make war,
So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.



Who is God besides the Lord?

And who is the Rock except our God?
And who is a rock, besides our God?

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
God is my strong fortress. He sets the blameless in His way.

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer.
He makes my feet like the doe’s feet, firm and swift.

He causes me to stand on the heights.
He sets me secure and confident on my high places.

2 Samuel 22:29-31

29 “For You are my lamp, O Lord;
The Lord shall enlighten my darkness.
30 For by You I can run against a troop;
By my God I can leap over a wall.
31 As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the Lord is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.



With the help of God I can advance against a troop.
By God I can run upon a troop.

With my God I can scale a wall.
By my God I can leap over a wall.

As for God, His way is perfect.
As for God, His way is blameless and perfect.

The Lord’s word is flawless.
The word of the Lord is tested.

He shields all who take refuge in Him.
He is a shield to all those who take refuge and trust in Him.
