A Prayer of Deliverance
A psalm to David; to Goliath.1 Blessed be the lord my God; the one teaching my hands for battle array, and my fingers for war; 2 my mercy and my refuge; my shielder and my rescuer; my defender, and upon him I hoped; the one subjecting my people under me. 3 O lord, what is man that you were known to him? or the son of man that you should consider him? 4 Man [2folly 1is like]; his days as a shadow pass by. 5 O lord, lean your heavens, and come down! Touch the mountains! and they shall smoke. 6 Flash lightning! and you shall disperse them. Send out your arrows! and you shall disturb them. 7 Send out your hand from the height! Take me, and rescue me from [2waters 1many], from out of the hand of the sons of strangers! 8 whose mouth spoke folly, and their right hand is a right hand of iniquity. 9 O God, [3ode 2a new 1I will sing] to you; with [2psaltery 1a ten-stringed] I will strum to you, 10 to the one giving deliverance to the kings, to the one ransoming David his servant from [2broadsword 1the ferocious]. 11 Rescue me, and deliver me from the hand of the sons of strangers! whose mouth spoke folly, and their right hand is a right hand of iniquity; 12 whom their sons are as newly planted, secure in their youth; their daughters being bedecked, being adorned sumptuously as the likeness of a temple; 13 their storerooms are full, discharging forth from out of this one to that one; their sheep are prolific, multiplying in their streets; 14 their oxen are thick; there is no ruined fence, nor stream, nor a cry in their broad spaces; 15 [3declare them happy 1the 2people] to which these things are. Blessed be the people of which the lord is his God.
