Scripture of the Day

Blessed be the LORD my strength,which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: 2 my goodness, and my fortress;my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

The Psalms
144

A Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity
A Psalm of David.

1 Blessed be the LORD my strength,

which teacheth my hands to war,
and my fingers to fight:
2 my goodness, and my fortress;

my high tower, and my deliverer;
my shield, and he in whom I trust;
who subdueth my people under me.
3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him!

or the son of man, that thou makest account of him! Job. 7.17, 18 ยท Ps. 8.4
4 Man is like to vanity:

his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down:

touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them:

shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
7 Send thine hand from above;

rid me, and deliver me out of great waters,
from the hand of strange children;
8 whose mouth speaketh vanity,

and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 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.
10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings:

who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
11 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:
12 that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth;

that our daughters may be as corner stones,
polished after the similitude of a palace:
13 that our garners may be full,

affording all manner of store;
that our sheep may bring forth thousands
and ten thousands in our streets:
14 that our oxen may be strong to labor;

that there be no breaking in, nor going out;
that there be no complaining in our streets.
15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case:

yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
