Psalm 144:1-6 NCV

1 Praise the Lord, my Rock, who trains me for war, who trains me for battle.
2 He protects me like a strong, walled city, and he loves me. He is my defender and my Savior, my shield and my protection. He helps me keep my people under control.
3 Lord, why are people important to you? Why do you even think about human beings?
4 People are like a breath; their lives are like passing shadows.
5 Lord, tear open the sky and come down. Touch the mountains so they will smoke.
6 Send the lightning and scatter my enemies. Shoot your arrows and force them away.
