Of David, referring to Goliath.
Blessed be the Lord my God, Which teacheth my hands to battle, and my fingers to fight.
My mercy and my refuge; my help and my deliverer.
My defender, in Whom I have hoped; Who hath subdued my people under me.
Lord, what is man, that Thou art made known unto him? or the son of man, that Thou makest account of him? Man is like unto vanity; his days as a shadow pass away.
Bow the heavens, O Lord, and come down; touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
Flash forth lightning, and Thou shalt scatter them; send out Thine arrows, and Thou shalt trouble them.
Send out Thine hand from above; rescue me, and deliver me from many waters, from the hand of the sons that are strangers,
Whose mouth hath spoken vanity, and their right hand is the right hand of unrighteousness.
I will sing a new song unto Thee, O God; upon a psaltery of ten strings will I sing praises to Thee; Who givest salvation unto kings; Who redeemest David Thy servant from the evil sword.
Deliver me, and rescue me from the hand of sons that are strangers, whose mouth hath spoken vanity, and their right hand is the right hand of unrighteousness.
Whose sons are like new plants, strongly planted in their youth; their daughters decked out, adorned after the similitude of a temple.
Their garners, brimming over with all manner of store.
Their sheep fruitful with young, abounding in their gateways; their oxen fat.
There is no breach of wall, nor passage, neither any crying in their streets.
They have called the people blessed whose lot this is; but blessed is that people whose God is the Lord.
