If I ascend to heaven, there you [are], and if I make my bed [in] Sheol, look! [There] you [are].

Sheol [is] naked before him, and there is no covering for Abaddon.

[The] wicked shall turn back to Sheol, all [the] nations forgetting God,

[The] ropes of death encircled me, and the distresses of Sheol found me. I found trouble and grief.

Sheol and Abaddon [are] before Yahweh, {how much more} the hearts of the children of men!

Sheol and Abaddon will not be satisfied, and the eyes of a person will not be satisfied [either].

The ropes of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me.

And he said: "I love you, O Yahweh, my strength." Yahweh [is] my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock in whom I have taken refuge, my shield and the horn of my deliverance, my stronghold.

The ropes of death encircled me, and streams of ruin overwhelmed me. The ropes of Sheol surrounded me; [the] snares of death confronted me. In my trouble I called on Yahweh, and to my God I cried for help. He heard my voice from his temple, and my cry for help came up before his presence into his ears. Then the earth shook and quaked, and [the] foundations of [the] mountains trembled, and they staggered because he was angry. Smoke went forth from his nose, and fire from his mouth consumed. Burning coals blazed from him. So he bowed [the] heavens and came down with a thick cloud under his feet. And he mounted a cherub and flew, and he swooped down on wings of wind. He made darkness his hiding place; all about him his covering [was] a darkness of waters, {thick clouds}. From the brightness before him his clouds passed over [with] hail and coals of fire. And Yahweh thundered from the heavens, and the Most High uttered his voice [with] hail and coals of fire. And he shot his arrows and scattered them, and many lightning bolts and routed them. Then the channels of [the] sea became visible, and [the] foundations of [the] world were uncovered by your rebuke, O Yahweh, by the {blast} of the wind of your nose. He reached from on high; he seized me. He drew me from many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from [those who] hated me because they were stronger than I. They confronted me on the day of disaster, but Yahweh was my support. So he brought me out to a spacious place. He delivered me because he delighted in me.
