Abstract Since the proposals made some time ago by Marc Girard and the author regarding the structure of Psalm 144 were far from converging, it appeared useful to reexamine the Psalm. In order to do so as methodologically as possible, the text of Ps 144 is analyzed in three steps, first by considering the structure of its smallest units (verses 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9, 10-11, 12-15), then of partial units, and finally of the psalm in its entirety. All this leads to the discovery of the relationship between the first part (verses 1-2 + 3-4) and the last part of the text (verses 10-11 + 12-15), as well as between the central unit (vv 7-8) and these extreme units, while verses 5-6 and 9, around the centre, announce the units of vv 10-11 and vv 12-15. At the end of the article the former proposals are reconsidered.
