The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


Blessed be the LORD my rock, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
    2 My lovingkindness, and my fortress; my stronghold, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I take refuge; who subdueth my people under me.
    3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou thinkest on him!
    4 Man is like a breath: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
    5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, so that they shall smoke.
    6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and drive them out.
    7 Stretch forth thine hand from above; rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strangers;
    8 Whose mouth speaketh deceit, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
    9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a harp of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee,
    10 Thou that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the deadly sword.
    11 Rescue me, and deliver me from the hand of strangers, whose mouth speaketh deceit, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
    12 Let our sons in their youth be as plants grown up; and our daughters as corner stones, polished as for a palace:
    13 Let our garners be full, affording all manner of store: let our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;
    14 Let our oxen be strong to labour; let there be no breaking in, nor going out; let there be no cry raised in our streets;
    15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
