Psalm 151

Psalm 151

1

מִזְמ֣וֺר לְדָוִ֑ד אַחֲרֵ֥י הִ֝לָּחֲמ֗וֹ אֶת־גׇּלְיָֽת׃

A psalm of David, after he battled Goliath.

2

צָעִ֗יר הָ֭יִֽיתִי בְת֣וֹךְ אָחָ֑י; וְ֝נַ֗עַר בְּבֵ֥ית אָבִֽי׃

Young I was in the midst of my brothers, and a lad in my father’s house.

3

רֺ֭עֶֽה בְּצֺ֣אן אָבִ֑י; נוֹהֵ֖ג עֶדְר֥וֹ בַמִּדְבָּֽר׃

A shepherd of my father’s flock, driving his herd in the wilderness.

4

יָדַ֗י עָ֭שֽׂוּ עוּגָ֑ב; אֶ֝צְבְּעוֹתַ֗י כּ֥וֹנֲנוּ נָֽבֶל׃

My hands performed upon a lute, my fingers worked a lyre.

5

וּמִ֣י יַגּׅ֣יד לַיהו֑ה; י֝הו֗ה ה֥וּא יִשְׁמָֽע׃

And who can tell Adonai? Adonai – He will hear.

6

ה֭וּא שָׁלַ֥ח מַלְאָכ֑וֹ; וַ֫יִּקָּחֵ֥נִי מֵאַ֣חֲרֵי צֹא֣ן אָבִֽי׃

He sent His messenger, and took me from after my father’s flock.

7

וַ֭יִּמְשָׁחַֽנִי בְּשֶׁ֣מֶן מִשְׁחָת֑וֹ; וַיְּצַוַּ֖נִי נָגִ֣יד עַל־עַמּֽוֹ׃

And He anointed me with anointing oil, and appointed me a prince of my people.

8

אַחַ֗י טוֹבִ֣ים וּגְדוֹלִ֑ים; וְלֺ֥א בָ֝הֶ֗ם חָפֵ֥ץ יהוֽה׃

My brothers are good and strong, but them Adonai did not desire.

9

יָצָ֖אְתִי לִקְרַ֣את הַפְּלִשְׁתִּ֑י; וַ֝יְּקַלֲלֵ֗נִי בָאֱלִלָֽיו׃

He took me out towards the Philistine, who cursed me through his idols.

10

וְאָנֹכִ֤י ׀ שָׁלַ֗פְתִּי חַרְבּ֥וֺ; וָאֶכְרֺ֣ת רֹאשׁ֣וֹ מֵעָלָ֑יו; וָאָסִ֥יר חֶ֝רְפָּ֗ה מִבְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃

And I tore off his sword, and cut off his head, and removed reproach from the children of Israel.
