Blessed be the LORD, my 1rock, 2who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;
he is my 3steadfast love and my 4fortress, my 5stronghold and my deliverer, my 6shield and he in whom I take refuge, who 7subdues peoplesa under me.
O LORD, 8what is man that you 9regard him, or the son of man that you think of him?
410Man is like a breath; his days are like 11a passing 12shadow.
513Bow your heavens, O LORD, and come down! 14Touch the mountains so that they smoke!
615Flash forth the lightning and scatter them; 16send out your arrows and rout them!
