144
(By David.)
A Prayer for the Nation
1 I praise you, Lord!
You are my mighty rock,
a 144.1 mighty rock: See the note at 18.2.
and you teach me
how to fight my battles.
144 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
A Psalm of David.
1 Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
strength: Heb. rock
to war...: Heb. to the war, etc
2 You are my friend,
and you are my fortress
where I am safe.
You are my shield,
and you made me the ruler
of our people.
b 144.2 of our people: Some Hebrew manuscripts and ancient translations have “of the nations.”
2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.
My goodness: or, My mercy

3 Why do we humans mean anything
144.3 Job 7.17
to you, our Lord?
Why do you care about us?
3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!
4 We disappear like a breath;
we last no longer
than a faint shadow.
4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

5 Open the heavens like a curtain
and come down, Lord.
Touch the mountains
and make them send up smoke.
5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6 Use your lightning as arrows
to scatter my enemies
and make them run away.
6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
7 Reach down from heaven
and set me free.
Save me from the mighty flood
7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
hand from: Heb. hands from
8 of those lying foreigners
who can't tell the truth.
8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9 In praise of you, our God,
I will sing a new song,
while playing my harp.
9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.
10 By your power, kings win wars,
and your servant David is saved
from deadly swords.
10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
salvation: or, victory
11 Won't you keep me safe
from those lying foreigners
who can't tell the truth?
11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

12 Let's pray that our young sons
will grow like strong plants
and that our daughters
will be as lovely
as columns
in the corner of a palace.
12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
polished: Heb. cut
13 May our barns be filled
with all kinds of crops.
May our fields be covered
with sheep by the thousands,
13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
all...: Heb. from kind to kind
14 and every cow have calves.
c 144.14 have calves: Or “grow fat.”
Don't let our city be captured
or any of us be taken away,
and don't let cries of sorrow
be heard in our streets.
14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.
strong...: Heb. able to bear burdens, or, loaden with flesh

15 Our Lord and our God,
you give these blessings
to all who worship you.
15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
