A Song. A Psalm by David.
1My heart is steadfast, God.
I will sing and I will make music with my soul.
2Wake up, harp and lyre!
I will wake up the dawn.
3I will give thanks to you, Lord, amongst the nations.
I will sing praises to you amongst the peoples.
4For your loving kindness is great above the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
5Be exalted, God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth.
6That your beloved may be delivered,
save with your right hand, and answer us.
7God has spoken from his sanctuary: “In triumph,
I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth.
8Gilead is mine. Manasseh is mine.
Ephraim also is my helmet.
Judah is my sceptre.
9Moab is my wash pot.
I will toss my sandal on Edom.
I will shout over Philistia.”
10Who will bring me into the fortified city?
Who has led me to Edom?
11Haven’t you rejected us, God?
You don’t go out, God, with our armies.
12Give us help against the enemy,
for the help of man is vain.
13Through God, we will do valiantly.
For it is he who will tread down our enemies.
