Verse 2

Psalm 18:2

First … in the original language – Hebrew:

יהוה סלעי ומצודתי ומפלטי אלי צורי אחסה־בו מגני וקרן־ישׁעי משׂגבי׃

Next, the English translation that I chose making the Psalm “mine”:

The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer (amp)

I can run to Him for safety (ncv)

He is my shield and my saving strength, my defender (ncv)
