I will sing a new song(A) to you, my God;
    on the ten-stringed lyre(B) I will make music to you,
10 to the One who gives victory to kings,(C)
    who delivers his servant David.(D)

From the deadly sword(E) 11 deliver me;
    rescue me(F) from the hands of foreigners(G)
whose mouths are full of lies,(H)
    whose right hands are deceitful.(I)

12 Then our sons in their youth
    will be like well-nurtured plants,(J)
and our daughters will be like pillars(K)
    carved to adorn a palace.
13 Our barns will be filled(L)
    with every kind of provision.
Our sheep will increase by thousands,
    by tens of thousands in our fields;
14     our oxen(M) will draw heavy loads.[a]
There will be no breaching of walls,(N)
    no going into captivity,
    no cry of distress in our streets.(O)
15 Blessed is the people(P) of whom this is true;
    blessed is the people whose God is the Lord.
