Evening Scripture Reading - 2 Samuel 22:7-16

2 Samuel 22:7-16 Holman Christian Standard Bible

I called to the Lord in my distress;

I called to my God.

From His temple He heard my voice,

and my cry for help reached His ears.

Then the earth shook and quaked;

the foundations of the heavens trembled;

they shook because He burned with anger.

Smoke rose from His nostrils,

and consuming fire came from His mouth;

coals were set ablaze by it.

He parted the heavens and came down,

a dark cloud beneath His feet.

He rode on a cherub and flew,

soaring on the wings of the wind.

He made darkness a canopy around Him,

a gathering of water and thick clouds.

From the radiance of His presence,

flaming coals were ignited.

The Lord thundered from heaven;

the Most High projected His voice.

He shot arrows and scattered them;

He hurled lightning bolts and routed them.

The depths of the sea became visible,

the foundations of the world were exposed

at the rebuke of the Lord,

at the blast of the breath of His nostrils.
