Salmos 144

1 [{A Psalm} of David.] Blessed {be} the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, {and} my fingers to fight: {strength: Heb. rock} {to war...: Heb. to the war, etc}

2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and {he} in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. {My goodness: or, My mercy}

3 LORD, what {is} man, that thou takest knowledge of him! {or} the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

4 Man is like to vanity: his days {are} as a shadow that passeth away.

5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children; {hand from: Heb. hands from}

8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand {is} a right hand of falsehood.

9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery {and} an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

10 {It is he} that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword. {salvation: or, victory}

11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand {is} a right hand of falsehood:

12 That our sons {may be} as plants grown up in their youth; {that} our daughters {may be} as corner stones, polished {after} the similitude of a palace: {polished: Heb. cut}

13 {That} our garners {may be} full, affording all manner of store: {that} our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: {all...: Heb. from kind to kind}

14 {That} our oxen {may be} strong to labour; {that there be} no breaking in, nor going out; that {there be} no complaining in our streets. {strong...: Heb. able to bear burdens, or, loaden with flesh}

15 Happy {is that} people, that is in such a case: {yea}, happy {is that} people, whose God {is} the LORD.
