A song. A melody of David. 108  My heart is steadfast, O God. I will sing and make music with my whole being.*+   Do awake, O stringed instrument; you too, O harp.+ I will awaken the dawn.   I will praise you among the peoples, O Jehovah, And I will sing praises* to you among the nations.   For your loyal love is great, as high as the heavens,+ And your faithfulness, up to the skies.   Be exalted above the heavens, O God; May your glory be over all the earth.+   So that your loved ones may be rescued, Save us with your right hand and answer me.+   God has spoken in his holiness:* “I will exult, I will give out Sheʹchem+ as an inheritance, And I will measure off the Valley* of Sucʹcoth.+   Gilʹe·ad+ belongs to me, as does Ma·nasʹseh, And Eʹphra·im is the helmet* for my head;+ Judah is my commander’s staff.+   Moʹab is my washbasin.+ Over Eʹdom I will throw my sandal.+ Over Phi·lisʹti·a I will shout in triumph.”+ 10  Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me as far as Eʹdom?+ 11  Is it not you, O God, who have rejected us, Our God, who no longer goes out with our armies?+ 12  Help us in our distress,+ For salvation by humans is worthless.+ 13  By God we will gain power,+ And he will trample on our adversaries.+
