A Song. A Psalm of David.
Ps 57.7-11. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
Awake, my soul!
2Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn!
3I will give thanks to thee, O Lord, among the peoples,
I will sing praises to thee among the nations.
4For thy steadfast love is great above the heavens,
thy faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let thy glory be over all the earth!
Ps 60.5-12. That thy beloved may be delivered,
give help by thy right hand, and answer me!
7God has promised in his sanctuary:#108.7 Or by his holiness
“With exultation I will divide up Shechem,
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
Ephraim is my helmet;
Judah my scepter.
9Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I cast my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph.”
10Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11Hast thou not rejected us, O God?
Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
12O grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the help of man!
13With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.
