A Psalm of David.
3*Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!
4* Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6* Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
7 Send thine † hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
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.
10It is he that giveth ∥ salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
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 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:
13That our garners may be full, affording † all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
14That our oxen may be† strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.
15* Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
