God Praised and Pleas to Give Victory.
A Song, a Psalm of David.
1My heart is steadfast, God;
I will sing, I will sing praises also with my #Lit glorysoul.
2Awake, harp and lyre;
I will awaken the dawn!
3I will give thanks to You, Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
4For Your mercy is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the skies.
5Be exalted above the heavens, God,
And may Your glory be above all the earth.
6So that Your beloved may be rescued,
Save with Your right hand, and answer me!
7God has spoken in His #Or sanctuaryholiness:
“I will triumph, I will divide up Shechem,
And measure out the Valley of Succoth.
8Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the #Lit protectionhelmet of My head;
Judah is My #Or lawgiverscepter.
9Moab is My washbowl;
I will throw My sandal over Edom;
I will shout aloud over Philistia.”
10Who will bring me into the fortified city?
Who #Or has ledwill lead me to Edom?
11God, have You Yourself not rejected us?
And will You not go forth with our armies, God?
12Give us help against the enemy,
For deliverance #Lit ofby man is worthless.
13 # Or In; or With Through God we will do valiantly,
And it is He who will trample down our enemies.
