Psalms 144 (asv)

Psalms 144 (asv)

A Psalm of David.

144:1Blessed be Jehovah my rock,

Who teacheth my hands to war,

And my fingers to fight:

144:2My lovingkindness, and my fortress,

My high tower, and my deliverer;

My shield, and he in whom I take refuge;

Who subdueth my people under me.

144:3Jehovah, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him?

Or the son of man, that thou makest account of him?

144:4Man is like to vanity:

His days are as a shadow that passeth away.

144:5Bow thy heavens, O Jehovah, and come down:

Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

144:6Cast forth lightning, and scatter them;

Send out thine arrows, and discomfit them.

144:7Stretch forth thy hand from above;

Rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters,

Out of the hand of aliens;

144:8Whose mouth speaketh deceit,

And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

144:9I will sing a new song unto thee, O God:

Upon a psaltery of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

144:10Thou art he that giveth salvation unto kings;

Who rescueth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

144:11Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of aliens,

Whose mouth speaketh deceit,

And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

144:12When our sons shall be as plants grown up in their youth,

And our daughters as corner-stones hewn after the fashion of a palace;

144:13When our garners are full, affording all manner of store,

And our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;

144:14When our oxen are well laden;

When there is no breaking in, and no going forth,

And no outcry in our streets:

144:15Happy is the people that is in such a case;

Yea, happy is the people whose God is Jehovah.
