King James Bible : Psalms : Chapter 144


144:1
Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
144:2
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.
144:3
LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!
144:4
Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
144:5
Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
144:6
Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
144:7
Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
144:8
Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
144:9
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.
144:10
It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
144:11
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:
144:12
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:
144:13
That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
144:14
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.
144:15
Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
