Chapter 143

1

Blessed be the Lord my God, who teacheth my hands to fight, and my fingers to war.

2

My mercy, and my refuge: my support, and my deliverer: My protector, and I have hoped in him: who subdueth my people under me.

3

Lord, what is man, that thou art made known to him? or the son of man, that thou makest account of him?

4

Man is like to vanity: his days pass away like a shadow.

5

Lord, bow down thy heavens and descend: touch the mountains and they shall smoke.

6

Send forth lightning, and thou shalt scatter them: shoot out thy arrows, and thou shalt trouble them.

7

Put forth thy hand from on high, take me out, and deliver me from many waters: from the hand of strange children:

8

Whose mouth hath spoken vanity: and their right hand is the right hand of iniquity.

9

To thee, O God, I will sing a new canticle: on the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings I will sing praises to thee.

10

Who givest salvation to kings: who hast redeemed thy servant David from the malicious sword:

11

Deliver me, And rescue me out of the hand of strange children; whose mouth hath spoken vanity: and their right hand is the right hand of iniquity:

12

Whose sons are as new plants in their youth: Their daughters decked out, adorned round about after the similitude of a temple:

13

Their storehouses full, flowing out of this into that. Their sheep fruitful in young, abounding in their goings forth:

14

their oxen fat. There is no breach of wall, nor passage, nor crying out in their streets.

15

They have called the people happy, that hath these things: but happy is that people whose God is the Lord.
