5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down : touch the mountains, and | they' shall / smoke.

6 Cast forth thy | lightning,' and tear them : shoot out thine ar'rows, and consume them.

7 Send down thine hand | from' above : deliver me, and take me out of the great waters, from the hand of strange children;

8 Whose mouth | talketh' of vanity : and their right hand | is a' right | hand' of wickedness.

9 I will sing a new song unto | thee,' O God : and sing praises unto thee upson' a | ten'-stringed | lute.

10 Thou hast given victory | un'to | kings : and hast delivered David thy servant from the pe'ril | of the sword.

11 Save me, and deliver me from the hand of strange | children : whose mouth talketh of vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of' iniquity.

12 That our sons may grow up as the young | plants : and that our daughters may be as the polished cor'ners of the temple.

13 That our garners may be full and plenteous with all | manner of | store : that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten | thou'sands | in' our streets.

14 That our oxen may be strong to labour, that there be no' descay : no leading into captivity, and no complain'ing | in' our streets.

15 Happy are the people that are in such'a | case : yea, blessed are the people who have the Lord | for their | God.
