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
fields;
14Let our ag  cattle
Lit be laden
bear
Without
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!
