Psalms 144

Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity.

A Psalm of David.

1 Blessed be the  Lord, a  my rock,
Who b  trains my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle;
2My lovingkindness and c  my fortress,
My d  stronghold and my deliverer,
My e  shield and He in whom I take refuge,
Who f  subdues
Another reading is peoples
my people under me.
3O  Lord h  what is man, that You take knowledge of him?
Or the son of man, that You think of him?
4 i  Man is like a mere breath;
His j  days are like a passing shadow.

5 k  Bow Your heavens, O  Lord, and l  come down;
m  Touch the mountains, that they may smoke.
6Flash forth n  lightning and scatter them;
Send out Your o  arrows and confuse them.
7Stretch forth Your hand p  from on high;
Rescue me and q  deliver me out of great waters,
Out of the hand of r  aliens
8Whose mouths s  speak deceit,
And whose t  right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9I will sing a u  new song to You, O God;
Upon a v  harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
10Who w  gives salvation to kings,
Who x  rescues David His servant from the evil sword.
11Rescue me and deliver me out of the hand of y  aliens,
Whose mouth z  speaks deceit
And whose aa  right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

12Let our sons in their youth be as ab  grown-up plants,
And our daughters as ac  corner pillars
Lit cut after the pattern of
fashioned as for a palace;
13Let our ae  garners be full, furnishing every kind of produce,
And our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our
Lit outside
14Let our ag  cattle
Lit be laden
Lit bursting forth
aj  mishap and without
Lit going out
al  loss,
Let there be no am  outcry in our streets!
15How blessed are the people who are so situated;
How an  blessed are the people whose God is the  Lord!
