Psalm 144:3-4

3-4I wonder why you care, God

why do you bother with us at all?

All we are is a puff of air;

we're like shadows in a campfire.

5-8Step down out of heaven, God;

ignite volcanoes in the hearts of the mountains.

Hurl your lightnings in every direction;

shoot your arrows this way and that.

Reach all the way from sky to sea:

pull me out of the ocean of hate,

out of the grip of those barbarians

Who lie through their teeth,

who shake your hand

then knife you in the back.
