Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.
He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
LORD, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them?
They are like a breath; their days are like a fleeting shadow.
Part your heavens, LORD, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke.
Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy; shoot your arrows and rout them.
Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners
whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful.
I will sing a new song to you, my God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you,
to the One who gives victory to kings, who delivers his servant David. From the deadly sword
deliver me; rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful.
