Psalms 1501Alleluia. Praise God in His holy places; praise Him in the firmament of His power. 2Praise Him on account of His mighty acts; praise Him according to His abundant greatness. 3Praise Him with the sound of a trumpet; praise Him with psaltery and harp. 4Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and the organ. 5Praise Him with melodious cymbals; praise Him with loud cymbals. 6Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. 1This Psalm is a genuine one of David, though supernumerary, composed when he fought in single combat with Goliath. 1!AI was small among my brothers, and youngest in my father's house: I tended my father's sheep. 2My hands formed a musical instrument, and my fingers tuned a psaltery. 3And who shall tell my Lord? The Lord Himself, He Himself hears. He sent forth His angel, and took me from my father's sheep, and He anointed me with the oil of His anointing. 5My brothers were handsome and tall; but the Lord did not take pleasure in them. 6I went forth to meet the Philistine; and he cursed me by his idols. 7But I drew his own sword, and beheaded him, and removed the reproach from the children of Israel.
