Tehilim Ch. No 144

tehilim 144

Translation

1 Of David. Blessed is the Lord, my Rock, Who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war.
2 My kindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield in Whom I take refuge, Who flattens peoples beneath me.
3 O Lord, what is man that You should know him, the son of man, that You should consider him?
4 Man is like a breath; his days are as a fleeting shadow.
5 O Lord, bend Your heavens and descend; touch the mountains and they will smoke.
6 Flash lightning and scatter them; send forth Your arrows and confound them.
7 Stretch forth hands from above; deliver me and rescue me from great waters, from the hands of foreigners.
8 Whose mouth speaks vanity, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 O God, I shall sing a new song for You; with a psaltery and a ten-stringed harp, I shall play music for You.
10 Who gives salvation to kings, Who delivers David His servant from an evil sword.
11 Deliver me and rescue me from the hands of foreigners, whose mouth speaks vanity and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
12 For our sons are like saplings, grown up in their youth; our daughters are like cornerstones, praised as the form of the Temple.
13 Our corners are full, supplying from harvest to harvest; our flocks produce thousands, yea, ten thousands in our streets.
14 Our princes are borne; there is no breach nor rumor going out, nor is there a cry in our squares.
15 Praiseworthy is the people that has this; praiseworthy is the people whose God is the Lord.
