Psalm 151



Psalm 151 is the last psalm in the Septuagint (Greek) Psalter and is accepted as canonical by all the Orthodox churches. Before the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, this psalm was known only as a single composition in the Septuagint and in the Latin and Syriac translations made from it. A Hebrew copy of Psalm 151 is found in the Great Psalms Scroll, but as two separate compositions—Psalms 151A and 151B.

This psalm is ascribed to David as his own composition (though it is outside the number a ), after he had fought in single combat with Goliath.

 1  I was small among my brothers,
         and the youngest in my father's house;
     I tended my father's sheep.

 2  My hands made a harp;
         my fingers fashioned a lyre.

 3  And who will tell my Lord?
         The Lord himself; it is he who hears.b

 4  It was he who sent his messengerc
         and took me from my father's sheep,
         and anointed me with his anointing oil.

 5  My brothers were handsome and tall,
         but the Lord was not pleased with them.

 6  I went out to meet the Philistine,d
         and he cursed me by his idols.

 7  But I drew his own sword;
         I beheaded him, and took away disgrace from the people of Israel.
