Chapter 1 (Psalm 151)

A hallelujah of David, Jesse's son.I was the smallest of my brothers, the youngest of my father's sons. He made me shepherd of his flock, ruler over their young. 2 My hands made a flute, my fingers a lyre. Let me give glory to the LORD, I thought to myself. 3 The mountains cannot witness to God; the hills cannot proclaim him. But the trees have cherished my words, the flocks my deeds. 4 Who can proclaim, who can announce, who can declare the LORD's deeds? God has seen everything; God has heard everything; God has listened. 5 God sent his prophet to anoint me; Samuel to make me great. My brothers went out to meet him, handsome in form and appearance:

6 Their stature tall, their hair beautiful, but the LORD God did not choose them. 7 Instead, he sent and took me from following the flock. God anointed me with holy oil; God made me leader for his people, ruler over the children of his covenant.
