A song; a psalm by David.
1My heart is confident, O God.
I want to sing and make music even with my soul.#108:1 Or “my glory.”
2Wake up, harp and lyre!
I want to wake up at dawn.
3I want to give thanks to you among the people, O Lord.
I want to make music to praise you among the nations
4because your mercy is higher than the heavens.
Your truth reaches the skies.
5May you be honored above the heavens, O God.
Let your glory extend over the whole earth.
6Save ⌞us⌟ with your powerful hand, and answer us
so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.
7God has promised the following through his holiness:
“I will triumph!
I will divide Shechem.
I will measure the valley of Succoth.
8Gilead is mine.
Manasseh is mine.
Ephraim is the helmet on my head.
Judah is my scepter.
9Moab is my washtub.
I will throw my shoe over Edom.
I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”
10Who will bring me into the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11Isn’t it you, O God, who rejected us?
Isn’t it you, O God, who refused to accompany our armies?
12Give us help against the enemy
because human assistance is worthless.
13With God we will display great strength.
He will trample our enemies.
