Psalm 144:1-15 NIV

Psalm 144:1-15 NIV [1] Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. [2] He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. [3] LORD, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them? [4] They are like a breath; their days are like a fleeting shadow. [5] Part your heavens, LORD, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke. [6] Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy; shoot your arrows and rout them. [7] Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners [8] whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. [9] I will sing a new song to you, my God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you, [10] to the One who gives victory to kings, who delivers his servant David. From the deadly sword [11] deliver me; rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. [12] Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace. [13] Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; [14] our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets. [15] Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the LORD.
