1 David: Blessed be my rock strength Jehovah. He trained my hands to fight and my fingers to do battle,
2 My loving kindness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; and my shield in whom I trust; who subdues my people under me.
3 Jehovah, what is man, that you notice him or the son of man, that you regard him!
4 Man is like a mere breath. His days are like a passing shadow.
5 Bow down your heavens, O Jehovah, and come down. Touch the mountains that they may smoke.
6 Flash lightning and scatter them. Send out your arrows and confuse them.
7 Stretch forth your hand from on high. Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of aliens
8 Whose mouths speak deceit, whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 I will sing a new song to you, O God; upon a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to you.
10 You give salvation to kings. You rescue David your servant from the evil sword.
11 Rescue me and deliver me out of the hand of aliens. Their mouths speak deceit. Their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
12 Let our sons in their youth be as grown-up plants, and our daughters as corner pillars fashioned as for a palace.
13 Let our garners be full, furnishing every kind of produce, our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;
14 Let our cattle bear without mishap and without loss. Let there be no outcry in our streets!
15 How blessed are the people who are so situated. How blessed are the people whose God is Jehovah!
