A Song, a Psalm Of David.
1My heart is fixed, O God; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory. 2Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake right early. 3I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. 4For thy mercy is great above the heavens, and thy truth reacheth unto the skies. 5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth. 6That thy beloved may be delivered, save with thy right hand, and answer us. 7God hath spoken in his holiness; I will exult: I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. 8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of mine head; Judah is my sceptre. 9Moab is my washpot; upon Edom will I cast my shoe: over Philistia will I shout. 10Who will bring me into the fenced city? who hath led me unto Edom? 11Hast not thou cast us off, O God? and thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts. 12Give us help against the adversary: for vain is the help of man. 13Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our adversaries.
