2 Samuel 22:8-20 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Then the earth shook and quaked;
the foundations of the heavens[a] 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.[b]
10 He parted the heavens and came down,
a dark cloud beneath His feet.
11 He rode on a cherub and flew,
soaring[c] on the wings of the wind.
12 He made darkness a canopy around Him,
a gathering[d] of water and thick clouds.
13 From the radiance of His presence,
flaming coals were ignited.
14 The Lord thundered from heaven;
the Most High projected His voice.
15 He shot arrows and scattered them;
He hurled lightning bolts and routed them.
16 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.

17 He reached down from heaven
and took hold of me;
He pulled me out of deep waters.
18 He rescued me from my powerful enemy
and from those who hated me,
for they were too strong for me.
19 They confronted me in the day of my distress,
but the Lord was my support.
20 He brought me out to a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.

Psalm 18:7-19 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Then the earth shook and quaked;
the foundations of the mountains 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.[a]
He parted the heavens and came down,
a dark cloud beneath His feet.
10 He rode on a cherub and flew,
soaring on the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness His hiding place,
dark storm clouds His canopy around Him.
12 From the radiance of His presence,
His clouds swept onward with hail and blazing coals.
13 The Lord thundered from[b] heaven;
the Most High projected His voice.[c]
14 He shot His arrows and scattered them;
He hurled[d] lightning bolts and routed them.
15 The depths of the sea became visible,
the foundations of the world were exposed,
at Your rebuke, Lord,
at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.

16 He reached down from heaven
and took hold of me;
He pulled me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy
and from those who hated me,
for they were too strong for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my distress,
but the Lord was my support.
19 He brought me out to a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.
