Psalms 144

Psalm 144
Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity.
A Psalm of David.
1Blessed be the Lord, my Rock and my great strength,
Who trains my hands for war
And my fingers for battle;
2My [steadfast] lovingkindness and my fortress,
My high tower and my rescuer,
My shield and He in whom I take refuge,
Who subdues my people under me.
3Lord, what is man that You take notice of him?
Or the son of man that You think of him? [Job 7:17; Ps 8:4; Heb 2:6]
4Man is like a mere breath;
His days are like a shadow that passes away.
5¶Bow Your heavens, O Lord, and come down;
Touch the mountains, and they will smoke.
6Flash lightning and scatter my enemies;
Send out Your arrows and confuse and embarrass and frustrate them.
7Stretch out Your hand from above;
Set me free and rescue me from great waters,
Out of the hands of [hostile] foreigners [who surround us]
8Whose mouths speak deceit [without restraint],
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9¶I will sing a new song to You, O God;
Upon a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
10Who gives salvation to kings,
Who sets David His servant free from the evil sword.
11Set me free and rescue me from the hand of [hostile] foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks deceit [without restraint],
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
12¶Let our sons in their youth be like plants full grown,
And our daughters like corner pillars fashioned for a palace;
13Let our barns be full, supplying every kind of produce,
And our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;
14Let our cattle bear
Without mishap and without loss,
And let there be no outcry in our streets!
15How blessed and favored are the people in such circumstance;
How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored] are the people whose God is the Lord!
