A Song or Psalm of David.
1
O God, my heart is fixed;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
2
Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
3
I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4
For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
5
Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
6
That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.
7
God hath spoken in his holiness;
I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8
Gilead is mine;
Manasseh is mine;
Ephraim also is the strength of mine head;
Judah is my lawgiver;
9
Moab is my washpot;
over Edom will I cast out my shoe;
over Philistia will I triumph.
10
Who will bring me into the strong city?
who will lead me into Edom?
11
Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off?
and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12
Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
13
Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
