Psalm 18:8-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
8 The earth rocked and shook;
the foundations of the mountains trembled;
they shook as his wrath flared up.
9 Smoke rose from his nostrils,
a devouring fire from his mouth;
it kindled coals into flame.
10 He parted the heavens and came down,
a dark cloud under his feet.
11 Mounted on a cherub he flew,
borne along on the wings of the wind.
12 He made darkness his cloak around him;
his canopy, water-darkened stormclouds.
13 From the gleam before him, his clouds passed,
hail and coals of fire.
14 The Lord thundered from heaven;
the Most High made his voice resound.
15 He let fly his arrows and scattered them;
shot his lightning bolts and dispersed them.
16 Then the bed of the sea appeared;
the world’s foundations lay bare,
At your rebuke, O Lord,
at the storming breath of your nostrils.
