1David blesseth God for his merciful protection: 3he admireth his care for vain man: 5he prayeth God by power to complete his deliverance: 9he promiseth to praise God: 11he prayeth for his kingdom's happiness under God's favour.
a Psalm of David.
Reading is great—but if you ever want to study, just tap a lightbulb
1Blessed be the Lordamy strength, 1which teacheth my hands bto war, and my fingers to fight:
2aMy 1goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who 2subdueth my people under me.
3Lord, 1what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!
41Man is like to vanity: 2his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
51Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
61Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
71Send thine ahand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of 2strange children;
8Whose 1mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9I 1will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.
10it is he1that giveth asalvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
111Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:
12That our sons may be1as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be2as corner stones, apolished after the similitude of a palace:
13that1our garners may be full, aaffording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
14that our oxen may beastrong to labour; that there be no 1breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.
151Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
