Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity.
A Psalm of David.
1 Blessed be the LORD, my R4479 rock,
Who trains R4480 my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle;
2 My lovingkindness and my R4481 fortress,
My stronghold R4482 and my deliverer,
My shield R4483 and He in whom I take refuge,
Who subdues R4484 my F1511 people under me.
3 O LORD, what R4485 is man, that You take knowledge of him?
Or the son of man, that You think of him?
4 Man R4486 is like a mere breath;
His days R4487 are like a passing shadow.
5 Bow R4488 Your heavens, O LORD, and come R4489 down;
Touch R4490 the mountains, that they may smoke.
6 Flash forth lightning R4491 and scatter them;
Send out Your arrows R4492 and confuse them.
7 Stretch forth Your hand from R4493 on high;
Rescue me and deliver R4494 me out of great waters,
Out of the hand of aliens R4495
8 Whose mouths speak R4496 deceit,
And whose right R4497 hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 I will sing a new R4498 song to You, O God;
Upon a harp R4499 of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
10 Who gives R4500 salvation to kings,
Who rescues R4501 David His servant from the evil sword.
11 Rescue me and deliver me out of the hand of aliens, R4502
Whose mouth speaks R4503 deceit
And whose right R4504 hand is a right hand of falsehood.
12 Let our sons in their youth be as grown-up R4505 plants,
And our daughters as corner R4506 pillars fashioned F1512 as for a palace;
13 Let our garners R4507 be full, furnishing every kind of produce,
And our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; F1513
14 Let our cattle R4508 bear F1514
Without mishap R4509 F1515 and without loss, R4510 F1516
Let there be no outcry R4511 in our streets!
15 How blessed are the people who are so situated;
How blessed R4512 are the people whose God is the LORD!
