Psalm 18:15-24, ESV
Then the channels of the sea were seen, and the foundations of the world were laid bare at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of your nostrils. He sent from on high, he took me; he drew me out of many waters. He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the LORD was my support.
He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me. The LORD dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all his rules were before me, and his statutes I did not put away from me. I was blameless before him, and I kept myself from my guilt. So the LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
Psalm 18:15-24, JN paraphrase
You, oh LORD, God, the Almighty, rescued from my enemy and saved me from those who hated Your Work in me.
You rescued me because You were delighted in me. My righteousness; my cleanness was not my doing, but Your doing in bringing me to Your Ways, Your rules, Your statutes; all have been kept before me to guide me according to Your Word.
