{A Song, a Psalm of David.}
My heart is fixed, O God: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms, even [with] my glory.
2
Awake, lute and harp: I will wake the dawn.
3
I will give thee thanks among the peoples, O Jehovah;
of thee will I sing psalms among the nations:
4
For thy loving-kindness is great above the heavens, and thy truth is unto the clouds.
5
Be thou exalted above the heavens, O God, and thy glory above all the earth.
6
That thy beloved ones may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.
7
God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8
Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, and Ephraim is the strength of my head;
Judah is my law-giver;
9
Moab is my wash-pot;
upon Edom will I cast my sandal;
over Philistia will I shout aloud.
10
Who will bring me into the strong city?
who will lead me unto Edom?
11
[Wilt] not [thou], O God, who didst cast us off?
and didst not go forth, O God, with our armies?
12
Give us help from trouble;
for vain is man's deliverance.
13
Through God we shall do valiantly;
and he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
