Reading along with us in 2 Samuel? Here’s today’s reading:

2 Samuel 22 (ESV)

And David spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day when the Lorddelivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. He said,

“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
    my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

  1. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
    3 my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    my shield, and the horn of my salvation,
    my stronghold and my refuge,
    my savior; you save me from violence.

    7 “In my distress I called upon the Lord;
    to my God I called.
    From his temple he heard my voice,
    and my cry came to his ears.

  2. Clearly David wrote this Psalm before his sin with Bathsheba. But as 2 Samuel closes, the writer harkens back to David’s glory days by including this Psalm here, Psalm 18 more specifically. But what a testament to God’s power and glory. I was struck by all the references to God’s protection which is fitting considering David’s life as a military man and the time he was fleeing from Saul. What a great and majestic God we have!
