In my distress I called upon you, Lord; to my God I called. From your temple you heard my voice, and my cry came to your ears. You sent from on high, you took me; you drew me out of many waters. You rescued me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but you, O Lord, were my support. You brought me out into a broad place; you rescued me, because you delight in meĀ (2 Samuel 22:7, 17-20).
