1 A Song. A Psalm of David.
2 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast! I will sing and make melody! Awake, my soul!
3 Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn!
4 I will give thanks to thee, O LORD, among the peoples, I will sing praises to thee among the nations.
5 For thy steadfast love is great above the heavens, thy faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
6 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let thy glory be over all the earth!
7 That thy beloved may be delivered, give help by thy right hand, and answer me!
8 God has promised in his sanctuary: "With exultation I will divide up Shechem, and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
9 Gilead is mine; Manas'seh is mine; E'phraim is my helmet; Judah my scepter.
10 Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph."
11 Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
12 Hast thou not rejected us, O God? Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
13 O grant us help against the foe, for vain is the help of man! [ (Psalms 108:14) With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes. ]
