A Psalm offDavid.

1Blessed be the LORD my rock, which teacheth my hands to war, andmy fingers to fight:

2My lovingkindness, and my fortress, my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

3LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him? or the son of man, that thou makest account of him?

4Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

5Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

6Cast forth lightning, and scatter them; send out thine arrows, and discomfit them.

7Stretch forth thine hand from above; rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of strangers;

8Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

10It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who rescueth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

11Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of strangers, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

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;

13Whenour garners are full, affording all manner of store; andour sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;

14Whenour oxen are well laden; when there isno breaking in, and no going forth, and no outcry in our streets;

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