Psalms 144

ERV(i) 1 [A Psalm off ]David. Blessed be the LORD my rock, which teacheth my hands to war, [and ]my fingers to fight: 2 My lovingkindness, and my fortress, my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. 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; send out thine arrows, and discomfit them. 7 Stretch forth thine hand from above; rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of strangers; 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 of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. 10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who rescueth David his servant from the hurtful sword. 11 Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of strangers, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood. 12 When our sons shall be as plants grown up in their youth; and our daughters as corner stones hewn after the fashion of a palace; 13 [When ]our garners are full, affording all manner of store; [and ]our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; 14 [When ]our oxen are well laden; [when there is ]no breaking in, and no going forth, and no outcry in our streets; 15 Happy is the people, that is in such a case: [yea], happy is the people, whose God is the LORD.
