2 Samuel 22:7 - In my distress I called to the LORD

NIV In my distress I called to the LORD;
I called out to my God.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came to his ears.
KJV In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
NASB In my distress I called upon the LORD,
Yes, I cried to my God;
And from His temple He heard my voice,
And my cry for help came into His ears.
2 Samuel 22:7


David did not take credit for any of his victories; he gave the glory to God. Nor was he ashamed to admit that he had cried out to God for deliverance and strength. His words should encourage us when we experience times of trial and testing.

David as Psalmist

Early in his life David distinguished himself as the "sweet psalmist of Israel" (2 Sam. 23:1). Many of the psalms in the Book of Psalms are attributed to him.
David's fondness for music is recorded in many places in the Bible. He played skillfully on the harp (1 Sam. 16:18-23). He arranged worship services in the sanctuary (1 Chr. 6:31). He composed psalms of lament over Saul and Jonathan (2 Sam. 1:17-27). His musical activity was referred to by Amos (Amos 6:5), Ezra (Ezra 3:10), and Nehemiah (Neh. 7:24, 46).
