A Plea for Victory
A song. A Davidic psalm.

I will sing; I will sing praises
with the whole of my being. # Lit praises, even my glory # Ps 59:17; 112:7

I will wake up the dawn. # Jdg 5:12; Ps 33:2; 81:2

I will sing praises to You among the nations. # 2Sm 22:50; Ps 9:11; 18:49
4For Your faithful love is higher than the heavens,
and Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. # Ps 36:5; 103:11; Lm 3:22-23

so that those You love may be rescued. # Ps 17:7; 20:6; 138:7

I will divide up Shechem. # Gn 12:6; 33:18

Who will lead me to Edom? # Jr 1:18

God, You do not march out with our armies. # Ps 44:9
