1 A song or psalm of David. My heart is firm, O God; I will sing and give praise, even with my spirit.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I will wake up the morningdawn.
3 I will give thee thanks among the people, O Lord: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4 For great above the heavens is thy kindness, and thy truth reacheth even unto the skies.
5 Exalt thyself above the heavens, O God; and above all the earth thy glory.
6 In order that thy beloved may be delivered: help with thy right hand, and answer me.
7 God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult, I will divide Shechem, and the valley of Succoth will I measure out.
8 Mine id Gilad, and mine is Menasseh; Ephraim also is the stronghold of my head; of Judah are my chiefs.
9 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom will I cast my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
10 Who will bring me into the fortified city? who will lead me as far as Edom?
11 Behold, it is thou, O God, who hast cast us off; and thou, O God, goest not forth with our armies.
12 Give us help against the assailant; for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God shall we do valiantly; for he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
