Psalm 144 (KJV)

1  Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:

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.

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;

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.

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:

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:

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.

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