Psalms 108:1-13

A song. A melody of David. 108  My heart is steadfast, O God.+ I will sing and make melody,+ Even my glory.+   Do awake, O stringed instrument; you too, O harp.+ I will awaken the dawn.+   I shall laud you among the peoples, O Jehovah;+ And I shall make melody to you among the national groups.+   For your loving-kindness* is great up to the heavens,+ And your trueness up to the skies.+   O be exalted above the heavens, O God;+ And let your glory be above all the earth.+   In order that your beloved ones may be rescued,+ O do save with your right hand and answer me.+   God himself has spoken in his holiness:+ “I will exult, I will give out She′chem+ as a portion;+ And the low plain of Suc′coth+ I shall measure off.   Gil′e·ad+ belongs to me; Ma·nas′seh+ belongs to me; And E′phra·im is the fortress of my head one;+ Judah is my commander’s staff.+   Mo′ab+ is my washing pot.+ Over E′dom+ I shall throw my sandal.+ Over Phi·lis′ti·a+ I shall shout in triumph.”*+ 10  Who will bring me to the fortified city?+ Who will actually lead me as far as E′dom?+ 11  Is it not [you], O God, who have cast us off+ And who do not go forth with our armies as God?+ 12  Do give us assistance from distress,+ As salvation by earthling man* is worthless.+ 13  By God we shall gain vital energy,+ And he himself will tread down our adversaries.+
