Psalm of Praise 

The song of David recorded in 2 Samuel 22 is repeated with nearly identical words in the book of Psalms. Some small differences occur, notably the addition of "I will love You, O Lord, my strength" at the beginning of Psalm 18. This song is a wonderful ode to God's great deliverance from enemies and His divine protection. It is also, as are many of the psalms, prophetically applicable to Jesus Christ. Indeed, 2 Samuel 22:3 (Psalm 18:2) is quoted in Hebrews 2:13, and 2 Samuel 22:50 (Psalm 18:49) is quoted in Romans 15:9 as applying directly to Jesus.
