“Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: my goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

LORD, what is man, that Thou takest knowledge of him; the son of man, that Thou makest account of him!

Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.  Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out Thine arrows, and destroy them.  Send Thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children; whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

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 that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David His servant from the hurtful sword.

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: that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; our daughters as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: our garners full, affording all manner of store: our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: our oxen strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.” Psalm 144:1-15 (KJB)
