I will sing a new song1 to you, O God; on the ten-stringed lyre2 I will make music to you,
to the One who gives victory to kings,3 who delivers his servant David4 from the deadly sword.511
Deliver me and rescue me6 from the hands of foreigners7 whose mouths are full of lies,8 whose right hands are deceitful.912
Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants,10 and our daughters will be like pillars11 carved to adorn a palace.
Our barns will be filled12 with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields;
our oxen13 will draw heavy loads.a There will be no breaching of walls,14 no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets.1515
Blessed are the people16 of whom this is true; blessed are the people whose God is the LORD.
