1: By David. Blessed [is] Jehovah my rock, who is teaching My hands for war, my fingers for battle. 2: My kind one, and my bulwark, My tower, and my deliverer, My shield, and in whom I have trusted, Who is subduing my people under me! 3: Jehovah, what [is] man that Thou knowest him? Son of man, that Thou esteemest him? 4: Man to vanity hath been like, His days [are] as a shadow passing by. 5: Jehovah, incline Thy heavens and come down, Strike against mountains, and they smoke. 6: Send forth lightning, and scatter them, Send forth Thine arrows, and trouble them, 7: Send forth Thy hand from on high, Free me, and deliver me from many waters, From the hand of sons of a stranger, 8: Because their mouth hath spoken vanity, And their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood. 9: O God, a new song I sing to Thee, On a psaltery of ten strings I sing praise to Thee. 10: Who is giving deliverance to kings, Who is freeing David His servant from the sword of evil. 11: Free me, and deliver me From the hand of sons of a stranger, Because their mouth hath spoken vanity, And their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood, 12: Because our sons [are] as plants, Becoming great in their youth, Our daughters as hewn stones, Polished -- the likeness of a palace, 13: Our garners [are] full, bringing out from kind to kind, Our flocks are bringing forth thousands, Ten thousands in our out-places, 14: Our oxen are carrying, there is no breach, And there is no outgoing, And there is no crying in our broad places. 15: O the happiness of the people that is thus, O the happiness of the people whose God [is] Jehovah!
