1 [A song. A Psalm of David.] O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. 2 Awake, harp and lyre: I myself will awake early. 3 I will praise you, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto you among the nations. 4 For your mercy is great above the heavens: and your truth reaches unto the clouds. 5 Be you exalted, O God, above the heavens: and your glory above all the earth; 6 That your beloved may be delivered: save with your right hand, and answer me.
7 God has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide up Shechem, and portion out the valley of Succoth. 8 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the helmet of my head; Judah is my lawgiver; 9 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? 11 Will not you, O God, who has cast us off? and will not you, O God, go forth with our armies? 12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. 13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
