In my Trouble I call'd upon the Lord, and complained unto my God.
So he heard my Voice.
The Earth trembled and quak'd, the Foundations of the Hills shook and were removed,
because he was wrath.
There went a Smoke out in his Presence and a consuming Fire out of his Mouth,
so that coals were kindled.
The Lord also thunder'd out of Heav'n,
the most Highest gave his Thunder, Hailstones and Coals of Fire.
They prevented me in the Day of my Trouble, but the Lord was my Upholder.
For this Cause will I give Thanks unto Thee, O Lord
And sing Praises unto thy Name.
He brought me forth also into a Place of Liberty because he had a Favour unto me.
For this Cause will I give Thanks unto Thee, O Lord
And sing Praises unto thy Name.
