A Song, A Psalm of David.
1 My heart is fixed, O God; I will sing, yea,
I will sing praises, even with my glory.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp:
I myself will *1 awake right early.
3 I will give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah, among the peoples;
And I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4 For thy lovingkindness is great above the heavens;
And thy truth reacheth unto the skies.
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 *2 us.
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;
Ephraim also is the defence of my head;
Judah is my *3 sceptre.
9 Moab is my washpot;
*4 Upon Edom will I cast my shoe;
Over Philistia will I shout.
10 Who will bring me into the fortified city?
Who *5 hath led me unto Edom?
11 *6 Hast not thou cast us off, O God?
And thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts.
12 Give us help against the adversary;
For vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do valiantly:
For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
