|<< Psalm 144 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Blessed is Lord Jehovah who teaches my hands for war and my fingers for battle!
2The house of my refuge and my deliverer, my helper, upon whom I trust and he subdues the people under me!
3Lord Jehovah, what is a son of man that you know him, and a son of man that you think much of him?
4A son of man is like a vapor and his days pass away like smoke.
5Bend Heaven, Lord Jehovah, and come down, and severely rebuke the mountains and they will be reduced to smoke!
6Cause your lightnings to flash and trouble them; send your arrows and scatter them.
7Reach your hand from the high place and draw me out of many waters and from the hand of the evil ones!
8For their mouths speak emptiness and their right hand is the right hand of evil.
9Oh God, I shall sing a new song to you, and with a harp of 10 strings I shall sing praise to you!
10For he gave salvation to the King and he delivered David his Servant from the sword of evil.
11Save me from the hand of the evil whose mouths speak futility and their right hand is the right hand of evil.
12Our sons are like plants that grow from their youth and our daughters like brides adorned in the likeness of temples.
13Our garners are full and overflowing, each one. Our sheep bear young and increase in our marketplaces.
14Our herds increase and there is none sterile among them; there is no ruin neither outcry in our streets!
15Blessed is the people that is so. Blessed is the people whose God is Lord Jehovah!
