PSALM 151

This psalm is ascribed to David as his own composition (though it is outside the number*), after he had fought in single combat with Goliath.
1 I was small among my brothers,
   and the youngest in my father’s house;
I tended my father’s sheep.


2 My hands made a harp;
   my fingers fashioned a lyre.


3 And who will tell my Lord?
   The Lord himself; it is he who hears.*


4 It was he who sent his messenger*
   and took me from my father’s sheep,
   and anointed me with his anointing-oil.


5 My brothers were handsome and tall,
   but the Lord was not pleased with them.


6 I went out to meet the Philistine,*
   and he cursed me by his idols.


7 But I drew his own sword;
   I beheaded him, and took away disgrace from the people of Israel.
