God Praised and Supplicated to Give Victory.

1 A Song, a Psalm of David.
(A)My heart is steadfast, O God;
I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my (a)soul.
Awake, harp and lyre;
I will awaken the dawn!
I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your (B)lovingkindness is great (C)above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the skies.
(D)Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth.
(E)That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and answer me!
God has spoken in His (b)holiness:
“I will exult, I will portion out Shechem
And measure out the valley of Succoth.
“Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the (c)helmet of My head;
(F)Judah is My (d)scepter.
“Moab is My washbowl;
Over Edom I shall throw My shoe;
Over Philistia I will shout aloud.”
(G)Who will bring me into the besieged city?
Who (e)will lead me to Edom?
Have not You Yourself, O God, (H)rejected us?
And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?
Oh give us help against the adversary,
For (I)deliverance (f)by man is in vain.
(g)Through God we will do valiantly,
And (J)it is He who shall tread down our adversaries.
