Psalms 144

David blesseth God for his mercy both to him and to man.

Psalms 144:1 {[A Psalme] of Dauid.} Blessed [be] the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to warre, [and] my fingers to fight. Psalms 144:2 My goodnes and my fortresse, my high tower and my deliuerer, my shield, and [he] in whome I trust: who subdueth my people vnder me. Psalms 144:3 LORD, what [is] man, that thou takest knowledge of him? [or] the sonne of man, that thou makest account of him? Psalms 144:4 Man is like to vanity: his dayes [are] as a shadow that passeth away.

He prayeth that God would powerfully deliver him from his enemies.

Psalms 144:5 Bow thy heauens, O LORD, and come downe: touch the mountaines, and they shall smoke. Psalms 144:6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoote out thine arrowes, and destroy them. Psalms 144:7 Send thine hand from aboue, rid me, and deliuer me out of great waters: from the hand of strange children, Psalms 144:8 Whose mouth speaketh vanitie: and their right hand [is] a right hand of falshood.

He promiseth to praise God.

Psalms 144:9 I will sing a new song vnto thee, O God: vpon a psalterie, [and] an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises vnto thee. Psalms 144:10 [It is he] that giueth saluation vnto kings: who deliuereth Dauid his seruant from the hurtfull sword.

He prayeth for the happy state of the kingdom.

Psalms 144:11 Rid me, and deliuer me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanitie: and their right hand [is] a right hand of falshood. Psalms 144:12 That our sonnes [may be] as plants growen vp in their youth; [that] our daughters [may be] as corner stones, polished [after] the similitude of a palace: Psalms 144:13 [That] our garners [may bee] full, affoording all maner of store; [that] our sheepe may bring forth thousands, and tenne thousands in our streetes. Psalms 144:14 That our oxen [may be] strong to labour, that [there be] no breaking in, nor going out; that [there be] no complaining in our streetes. Psalms 144:15 Happy [is] that people that is in such a case: [yea], happy [is] that people, whose God is the LORD.
