Blessed be the Lord my strength,

aWhich teacheth my hands to war,

And my fingers ato fight:

b||My goodness, and cmy fortress; dmy high tower, and my deliverer;

bMy shield, and he in whom I trust;

Who esubdueth my people under me.

fLord, what is man, that thou gTakest knowledge of him!

Or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

hMan is like to vanity:

His days are as ia shadow that passeth away.

kBow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down:

lTouch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

Cast forth mlightning, and scatter them:

mShoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

nSend thine hand ofrom above;

pRid me, and deliver me nout of great waters,

From the hand of qstrange children;

Whose mouth rspeaketh vanity,

And their right hand is sa right hand of falsehood.

I will tsing a new song unto thee, O God:

Upon ua psaltery wand uan instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

10  It is he xthat giveth ||salvation unto kings:

Who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

11  yRid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children,

zWhose mouth speaketh vanity,

And their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

12  That our sons may be aas plants grown up in their youth;

That our daughters may be as bcorner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

13  That our garners may be full, caffording all manner of store:

That our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our estreets:

14  That our oxen may be strong to labour;

That there be no fbreaking in, nor ggoing out;

That there be no hcomplaining in our streets.

15  iHappy is that people, that is in such a case:

Yea, khappy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
