Psalms 144

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

Psalms 144:1 {[A Psalm off] David.} Blessed be the LORD my rock, which teacheth my hands to war, [and] my fingers to fight: Psalms 144:2 My lovingkindness, and my fortress, my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. Psalms 144:3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him? or the son of man, that thou makest account of him? Psalms 144:4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

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

Psalms 144:5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. Psalms 144:6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them; send out thine arrows, and discomfit them. Psalms 144:7 Stretch forth thine hand from above; rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of strangers; Psalms 144:8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

He promiseth to praise God.

Psalms 144:9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. Psalms 144:10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who rescueth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

He prayeth for the happy state of the kingdom.

Psalms 144:11 Rescue me, and deliver me out of the hand of strangers, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood. Psalms 144:12 When our sons shall be as plants grown up in their youth; and our daughters as corner stones hewn after the fashion of a palace; Psalms 144:13 [When] our garners are full, affording all manner of store; [and] our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; Psalms 144:14 [When] our oxen are well laden; [when there is] no breaking in, and no going forth, and no outcry in our streets; Psalms 144:15 Happy is the people, that is in such a case: [yea], happy is the people, whose God is the LORD.
