144:1  Blessed be Jehovah my rock, Who teacheth my hands to war, `And' my fingers to fight:

144:2  My 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.

144:3  Jehovah, 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 Jehovah, and come down: Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

144:6  Cast forth lightning, and scatter them; Send out thine arrows, and discomfit them.

144:7  Stretch forth thy hand from above; Rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, Out of the hand of aliens;

144:8  Whose mouth speaketh deceit, And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

144:9  I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: Upon a psaltery of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

144:10  Thou art he that giveth salvation unto kings; Who rescueth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

144:11  Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of aliens, Whose mouth speaketh deceit, And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

144:12  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;

144:13  `When' our garners are full, affording all manner of store, `And' our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;

144:14  `When' our oxen are well laden; `When there is' no breaking in, and no going forth, And no outcry in our streets:

144:15  Happy is the people that is in such a case; `Yea', happy is the people whose God is Jehovah. Psalm 145 `A' `Psalm' `of' praise; of David.
