Psalms 108

1

A SONG. A PSALM OF DAVID. My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being!

2

Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn!

3

I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.

4

For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

5

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!

6

That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer me!

7

God has promised in his holiness: "With exultation I will divide up Shechem and portion out the Valley of Succoth.

8

Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.

9

Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph."

10

Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?

11

Have you not rejected us, O God? You do not go out, O God, with our armies.

12

Oh grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man!

13

With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
