2 He is my loyal love and my stronghold,
My secure refuge* and my rescuer,
My shield and the One in whom I have taken shelter,+
The One subduing peoples under me.+
3 O Jehovah, what is man that you should notice him,
The son of mortal man that you should pay attention to him?+
7 Stretch out your hands from above;
Rescue me and save me from the surging waters,
8 Whose mouths speak lies
And who raise their right hand to swear to what is false.*
I will sing praises* to you, accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument,
The One rescuing his servant David from the deadly sword.+
11 Rescue me and save me from the hand of the foreigners,
Whose mouths speak lies
And who raise their right hand to swear to what is false.
12 Then our sons will be like young plants that grow up quickly,
Our daughters like corner pillars carved for a palace.
13 Our storehouses will overflow with every kind of produce;
Our flocks in our fields will multiply by the thousands, by the tens of thousands.
There will be no cry of distress in our public squares.
15 Happy is the people for whom it is this way!
Happy is the people whose God is Jehovah!+
