A Psalm of David.1 Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: ▼
▼ strength: Heb. rock, ▼
▼ to war…: Heb. to the war, etc2 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. ▼
▼ My goodness: or, My mercy3 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; ▼
▼ hand from: Heb. hands from8 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. ▼
▼ salvation: or, victory11 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: ▼
▼ polished: Heb. cut13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: ▼
▼ all…: Heb. from kind to kind14 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. ▼
▼ strong…: Heb. able to bear burdens, or, loaden with flesh15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
