1A song. A psalm of David:
2My heart is steadfast, God.
I will sing and make music with my glory.
3Awake, lute and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
4I will thank you, Adonai, among the peoples;
I will make music to you among the nations.
5For your grace is great, above heaven,
and your truth, all the way to the skies.
6Be exalted, God, above heaven!
May your glory be over all the earth,
7in order that those you love can be rescued;
so save with your right hand, and answer me!
8God in his holiness spoke,
and I took joy [in his promise]:
“I will divide Sh’khem
and determine the shares in the Sukkot Valley.
9Gil‘ad is mine and M’nasheh mine,
Efrayim my helmet, Y’hudah my scepter.
10Mo’av is my washpot; on Edom I throw my shoe;
Over P’leshet I shout in triumph.”
11Who will bring me into the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
12God, have you rejected us?
You don’t go out with our armies, God.
13Help us against our enemy,
for human help is worthless.
14With God’s help we will fight valiantly,
for he will trample our enemies.
