A song or Psalme of Dauid.
1
O God, mine heart is prepared, so is my tongue: I will sing and giue praise.
2
Awake viole and harpe: I will awake early.
3
I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people, and I wil sing vnto thee among the nations.
4
For thy mercy is great aboue the heauens, and thy trueth vnto the clouds.
5
Exalt thy self, O God, aboue the heauens, and let thy glorie be vpon all the earth,
6
That thy beloued may be deliuered: helpe with thy right hand and heare me.
7
God hath spoken in his holinesse: therefore I will reioyce, I shall deuide Shechem and measure the valley of Succoth.
8
Gilead shalbe mine, and Manasseh shalbe mine: Ephraim also shalbe the strength of mine head: Iuda is my lawgiuer.
9
Moab shalbe my washpot: ouer Edom wil I cast out my shoe: vpon Palestina wil I triumph.
10
Who will leade mee into the strong citie?
Who will bring me vnto Edom?
11
Wilt not thou, O God, which haddest forsaken vs, and diddest not goe foorth, O God, with our armies?
12
Giue vs helpe against trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
13
Through God we shall doe valiantly: for he shall treade downe our enemies.
