10/15 Daily Devotional

Chapel Devotional  

Psalm 18:1-18 

I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, so I shall be saved from my enemies. The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of perdition assailed me; the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears. Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked, because he was angry. Smoke went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire from his mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from him. He bowed the heavens, and came down; thick darkness was under his feet. He rode on a cherub, and flew; he came swiftly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his covering around him, his canopy thick clouds dark with water. Out of the brightness before him there broke through his clouds hailstones and coals of fire. The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Most High uttered his voice. And he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; he flashed forth lightnings, and routed them. 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 reached down from on high, he took me; he drew me out of mighty waters. He delivered 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. 

 

Del maestro de coro. Del siervo de Yahveh, David, que dirigió a Yahveh las palabras de este cántico el día en que Yahveh le libró de todos sus enemigos y de las manos de Saúl. Dijo: Yo te amo, Yahveh, mi fortaleza, (mi salvador, que de la violencia me has salvado). Yahveh, mi roca y mi baluarte, mi liberador, mi Dios; la peña en que me amparo, mi escudo y fuerza de mi salvación, mi ciudadela y mi refugioInvoco a Yahveh, que es digno de alabanza, y quedo a salvo de mis enemigos. Las olas de la muerte me envolvían, me espantaban las trombas de Belial, los lazos del seol me rodeaban, me aguardaban los cepos de la Muerte. Clamé a Yahveh en mi angustia, a mi Dios invoqué; y escuchó mi voz desde su Templo, resonó mi llamada en sus oídos. La tierra fue sacudida y vaciló, retemblaron las bases de los montes, (vacilaron bajo su furor); una humareda subió de sus narices, y de su boca un fuego que abrasaba, (de él salían carbones encendidos). El inclinó los cielos y bajó, un espeso nublado debajo de sus pies; cabalgó sobre un querube, emprendió el vuelosobre las alas de los vientos planeó. Se puso como tienda un cerco de tinieblastinieblas de las aguas, espesos nubarrones; del fulgor que le precedía se encendieron granizo y ascuas de fuegoTronó Yahveh en los cielos, lanzó el Altísimo su voz; arrojó saetas, y los puso en fugarayos fulminó y sembró derrota. El fondo del mar quedó a la vista, los cimientos del orbe aparecieron, ante tu imprecación, Yahveh, al resollar el aliento en tus narices. El extiende su mano de lo alto para asirme, para sacarme de las profundas aguas; me libera de un enemigo poderoso, de mis adversarios más fuertes que yo. 

 

(여호와의 종 다윗의 시. 영장으로 한 노래여호와께서 다윗을 그 모든 원수와 사울의 손에서 구원하신 날에 다윗이 이 노래의 말로 여호와께 아뢰어 가로되나의 힘이 되신 여호와여내가 주를 사랑하나이다 여호와는 나의 반석이시요나의 요새시요나를 건지시는 자시요나의 하나님이시요나의 피할 바위시요나의 방패시요나의 구원의 뿔이시요나의 산성이시로다 내가 찬송 받으실 여호와께 아뢰리니 내 원수들에게서 구원을 얻으리로다 사망의 줄이 나를 얽고 불의의 창수가 나를 두렵게 하였으며 음부의 줄이 나를 두르고 사망의 올무가 내게 이르렀도다 내가 환난에서 여호와께 아뢰며 나의 하나님께 부르짖었더니 저가 그 전에서 내 소리를 들으심이여 그 앞에서 나의 부르짖음이 그 귀에 들렸도다 이에 땅이 진동하고 산의 터도 요동하였으니 그의 진노를 인함이로다 그 코에서 연기가 오르고 입에서 불이 나와 사름이여 그 불에 숯이 피었도다 저가 또 하늘을 드리우시고 강림하시니 그 발 아래는 어둑캄캄하도다 그룹을 타고 날으심이여 바람 날개로 높이 뜨셨도다 저가 흑암으로 그 숨는 곳을 삼으사 장막 같이 자기를 두르게 하심이여 곧 물의 흑암과 공중의 빽빽한 구름으로 그리하시도다 그 앞에 광채로 인하여 빽빽한 구름이 지나며 우박과 숯불이 내리도다 여호와께서 하늘에서 뇌성을 발하시고 지존하신 자가 음성을 내시며 우박과 숯불이 내리도다 그 살을 날려 저희를 흩으심이여 많은 번개로 파하셨도다 이럴 때에 여호와의 꾸지람과 콧김을 인하여 물밑이 드러나고 세상의 터가 나타났도다 저가 위에서 보내사 나를 취하심이여 많은 물에서 나를 건져 내셨도다 나를 강한 원수와 미워하는 자에게서 건지셨음이여 저희는 나보다 힘센 연고로다 저희가 나의 재앙의 날에 내게 이르렀으나 여호와께서 나의 의지가 되셨도다 

 

God our protector, 

     you stood by David in the time of trial. 

Stand with us through all life's storms, 

     giving us courage to risk danger 

     to protect those who are oppressed and poor, 

     that they may know you as their stronghold and hope.  

Amen.
