A song. A psalm of David.
1God, I have complete confidence in you! My whole being sings praises to you!
2Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn!
3I will thank you among the peoples, Lord, I will sing your praises among the nations.#108:3 These verses are almost the same as Psalms 57:8-9.
4For your trustworthy love reaches higher than the heavens, your faithfulness is higher than the clouds.
5God, your greatness is above the highest heavens; and your glory is over all the earth!#108:5. This verse is the same as Psalms 57:11.
6Rescue those you love! Answer us, and save us by your power!
7God has spoken from his Temple: “Triumphantly I divide up Shechem, and portion out the Valley of Succoth.
8Both Gilead and Manasseh belong to me. Ephraim is my helmet, and Judah is my scepter.
9I will treat Moab as my washbasin; I will place my sandal on Edom; I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”
10Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me into Edom?
11Have you rejected us, God? Won't you go out with our armies?
12Please give us help against our enemies, for human help is worthless.
13Our strength is in God, and he will crush our enemies.#108:13 These verses (6-13) are substantially the same as Psalms 60:5-12. For footnotes see Psalms 60.
