Psalms 144

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

Psalms 144:1 {A Psalme of Dauid.} Blessed be the Lorde my strength, which teacheth mine hands to fight, and my fingers to battell. Psalms 144:2 He is my goodnes and my fortresse, my towre and my deliuerer, my shield, and in him I trust, which subdueth my people vnder me. Psalms 144:3 Lorde, what is man that thou regardest him! or the sonne of man that thou thinkest vpon him! Psalms 144:4 Man is like to vanitie: his dayes are like a shadow, that vanisheth.

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

Psalms 144:5 Bow thine heauens, O Lorde, and come downe: touch the mountaines & they shal smoke. Psalms 144:6 Cast forth the lightning & scatter them: shoote out thine arrowes, and consume them. Psalms 144:7 Send thine hand from aboue: deliuer me, and take me out of the great waters, and from the hand of strangers, Psalms 144:8 Whose mouth talketh vanitie, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

He promiseth to praise God.

Psalms 144:9 I wil sing a new song vnto thee, O God, and sing vnto thee vpon a viole, and an instrument of ten strings. Psalms 144:10 It is he that giueth deliuerance vnto Kings, and rescueth Dauid his seruant from the hurtfull sworde.

He prayeth for the happy state of the kingdom.

Psalms 144:11 Rescue me, and deliuer me from the hand of strangers, whose mouth talketh vanitie, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehoode: Psalms 144:12 That our sonnes may be as the plantes growing vp in their youth, and our daughters as the corner stones, grauen after the similitude of a palace: Psalms 144:13 That our corners may be full, and abounding with diuers sorts, and that our sheepe may bring forth thousands and ten thousand in our streetes: Psalms 144:14 That our oxen may be strong to labour: that there be none inuasion, nor going out, nor no crying in our streetes. Psalms 144:15 Blessed are the people, that be so, yea, blessed are the people, whose God is the Lord.
