English Standard Version (ESV)


2 Samuel 22:26-51

26 “With the merciful you show yourself merciful;
with the blameless man you show yourself blameless;
27 with the purified you deal purely,
and with the crooked you make yourself seem tortuous.
28 You save a humble people,
but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them down.
29 For you are my lamp, O Lord,
and my God lightens my darkness.
30 For by you I can run against a troop,
and by my God I can leap over a wall.
31 This God—his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord proves true;
he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.

32 “For who is God, but the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God?
33 This God is my strong refuge
and has made my way blameless.
34 He made my feet like the feet of a deer
and set me secure on the heights.
35 He trains my hands for war,
so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
36 You have given me the shield of your salvation,
and your gentleness made me great.
37 You gave a wide place for my steps under me,
and my feet did not slip;
38 I pursued my enemies and destroyed them,
and did not turn back until they were consumed.
39 I consumed them; I thrust them through, so that they did not rise;
they fell under my feet.
40 For you equipped me with strength for the battle;
you made those who rise against me sink under me.
41 You made my enemies turn their backs to me,
those who hated me, and I destroyed them.
42 They looked, but there was none to save;
they cried to the Lord, but he did not answer them.
43 I beat them fine as the dust of the earth;
I crushed them and stamped them down like the mire of the streets.

44 “You delivered me from strife with my people;
you kept me as the head of the nations;
people whom I had not known served me.
45 Foreigners came cringing to me;
as soon as they heard of me, they obeyed me.
46 Foreigners lost heart
and came trembling out of their fortresses.

47 “The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation,
48 the God who gave me vengeance
and brought down peoples under me,
49 who brought me out from my enemies;
you exalted me above those who rose against me;
you delivered me from men of violence.

50 “For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
and sing praises to your name.
51 Great salvation he brings to his king,
and shows steadfast love to his anointed,
to David and his offspring forever.”

Psalm 18:25-50

25 With the merciful you show yourself merciful;
with the blameless man you show yourself blameless;
26 with the purified you show yourself pure;
and with the crooked you make yourself seem tortuous.
27 For you save a humble people,
but the haughty eyes you bring down.
28 For it is you who light my lamp;
the Lord my God lightens my darkness.
29 For by you I can run against a troop,
and by my God I can leap over a wall.
30 This God—his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord proves true;
he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.

31 For who is God, but the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God?—
32 the God who equipped me with strength
and made my way blameless.
33 He made my feet like the feet of a deer
and set me secure on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for war,
so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You have given me the shield of your salvation,
and your right hand supported me,
and your gentleness made me great.
36 You gave a wide place for my steps under me,
and my feet did not slip.
37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them,
and did not turn back till they were consumed.
38 I thrust them through, so that they were not able to rise;
they fell under my feet.
39 For you equipped me with strength for the battle;
you made those who rise against me sink under me.
40 You made my enemies turn their backs to me,
and those who hated me I destroyed.
41 They cried for help, but there was none to save;
they cried to the Lord, but he did not answer them.
42 I beat them fine as dust before the wind;
I cast them out like the mire of the streets.

43 You delivered me from strife with the people;
you made me the head of the nations;
people whom I had not known served me.
44 As soon as they heard of me they obeyed me;
foreigners came cringing to me.
45 Foreigners lost heart
and came trembling out of their fortresses.

46 The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
and exalted be the God of my salvation—
47 the God who gave me vengeance
and subdued peoples under me,
48 who delivered me from my enemies;
yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me;
you rescued me from the man of violence.

49 For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
and sing to your name.
50 Great salvation he brings to his king,
and shows steadfast love to his anointed,
to David and his offspring forever.

Luke 19:28-40

28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”


King James Version (KJV)


2 Samuel 22:26-51

26With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt show thyself upright.27With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt show thyself unsavoury.28And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.29For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.30For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.31As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.32For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?33God is my strength and power: And he maketh my way perfect.34He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places.35He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.36Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.37Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.38I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.39And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.40For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.41Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.42They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.43Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.44Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me.45Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.46Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places.47The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.48It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me,49And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.50Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.51He is the tower of salvation for his king: and showeth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.

Psalm 18:25-50

25With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful;
with an upright man thou wilt show thyself upright;
26With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure;
and with the froward thou wilt show thyself froward.
27For thou wilt save the afflicted people;
but wilt bring down high looks.
28For thou wilt light my candle:
the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
29For by thee I have run through a troop;
and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
30As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the LORD is tried:
he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
31For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?32It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
33He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
34He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
35Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation:
and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
36Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
37I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them:
neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
38I have wounded them that they were not able to rise:
they are fallen under my feet.
39For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle:
thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
40Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies;
that I might destroy them that hate me.
41They cried, but there was none to save them:
even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
42Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind:
I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
43Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people;
and thou hast made me the head of the heathen:
a people whom I have not known shall serve me.
44As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me:
the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
45The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
46The LORD liveth;
and blessed be my rock;
and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
47It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
48He delivereth me from mine enemies:
yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me:
thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
49Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
50Great deliverance giveth he to his king;
and showeth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

Luke 19:28-40

28And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.29And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,30Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.31And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.32And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.33And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?34And they said, The Lord hath need of him.35And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.36And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
