Psalm 144

During the defense of the French village of Ramelle, Private Jackson quoted the first two verses of Psalm 144 while firing on German soldiers from his position in the village's bell tower.


Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.


My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.
