1 My heart is firm, God; I will sing and praise you with my whole being. 2 Awake, harp and lyre! I will wake up at dawn. 3 I will give thanks to you among the nations, LORD! I will sing praise to you among the nations. 4 For your gracious love extends to the sky, and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. 5 May you be exalted above the heavens, God, and your glory be over all the earth. 6 In order that those you love may be rescued, deliver with your power and answer me!
7 God had promised in his sanctuary: "I will triumph and divide Shechem, then I will measure the valley of Succoth! 8 Gilead and Manasseh belong to me, while Ephraim is my chief stronghold and Judah is my scepter. 9 Moab is my washbasin; I will fling my shoe on Edom and shout over Philistia."
10 Who will lead me to the fortified city? Who will lead me as far as Edom? 11 God, you have rejected us, have you not, since you did not march out with our army, God? 12 Give us help against the enemy, because human help is useless. 13 I will find strength in God, for he will trample on our foes. To the Director. A Davidic psalm.
