Psalm 144

Blessed be the Lord my Rock :
 who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight;
My strength and my stronghold, my fortress and my deliverer :
 my shield, to whom I come for refuge, who subdues the peoples under me.
Lord, what is man, that you should be mindful of him :
 or the son of man, that you should consider him?
Man is but a breath of wind :
 his days are like a shadow that passes away.
Part the heavens, O Lord, and come down :
 touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
Dart forth your lightnings, and scatter them on every side :
 let loose your arrows, with the roar of the thunderbolt.
Reach down your hand from on high, rescue me,
   and pluck me out of the great waters :
 out of the hands of the aliens,
Whose mouths speak perjury :
 and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
I will sing you a new song, O God :
 on the ten-stringed lute will I sing your praises.
You have given victory to kings :
 and deliverance to David your servant.
O save me from the peril of the sword :
 pluck me out of the hands of the aliens,
Whose mouths speak perjury :
 and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
Our sons in their youth shall be like sturdy plants :
 and our daughters as the carved corners of palaces.
Our barns shall be full and give food of every kind :
 the sheep shall lamb in our fields
   in thousands and tens of thousands.
Our cattle shall be heavy with calf,
   there shall be no miscarriage or untimely birth :
 and no loud crying in our streets.
Happy the people whose lot is such as this :
 happy that people who have the Lord for their God!
