Bible: Psalm 18:8-16

18:8 Smoke ascended from 1  his nose; 2 

fire devoured as it came from his mouth; 3 

he hurled down fiery coals. 4 

18:9 He made the sky sink 5  as he descended;

a thick cloud was under his feet.

18:10 He mounted 6  a winged angel 7  and flew;

he glided 8  on the wings of the wind. 9 

18:11 He shrouded himself in darkness, 10 

in thick rain clouds. 11 

18:12 From the brightness in front of him came

hail and fiery coals. 12 

18:13 The Lord thundered 13  in 14  the sky;

the sovereign One 15  shouted. 16 

18:14 He shot his 17  arrows and scattered them, 18 

many lightning bolts 19  and routed them. 20 

18:15 The depths 21  of the sea 22  were exposed;

the inner regions 23  of the world were uncovered

by 24  your battle cry, 25  Lord,

by the powerful breath from your nose. 26 

18:16 He reached down 27  from above and took hold of me;

he pulled me from the surging water. 28
