David knew death entangled him and torrents of destruction overwhelmed him but he called on his God for help and His God delivered him and gave him a song and he gave praise back to the God who delivered, with the words of the song in Psalm 18: 1, 2, 3
“I love you O Lord my strength. The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress and my Deliverer; my God is my Rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the Horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the Lord who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.”
