Psalm 18:20-31

View Full Chapter

20The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.

21For I have kept the ways of the LORD ; I am not guilty of turning from my God.

22All his laws are before me; I have not turned away from his decrees.

23I have been blameless before him and have kept myself from sin.

24The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.

25To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless,

26to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the devious you show yourself shrewd.

27You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.

28You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.

29With your help I can advance against a troop Or can run through a barricade ; with my God I can scale a wall.

30As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD ’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.

31For who is God besides the LORD ? And who is the Rock except our God?
