Psalms 108


The LORD Delivers His Beloved

Ode of a psalm to David.

1[2is prepared 1My heart], O God, [2is prepared 1my heart]. I shall sing and strum in my glory. 2Awake, O my glory! Awake, psaltery and harp! I will be awakened at dawn. 3I will make acknowledgment to you among peoples, O  lord; I shall strum to you among nations. 4For great above the heavens is your mercy; and unto the clouds is your truth. 5Be raised up high above the heavens, O God, and above all the earth with your glory! 6so that [2should be rescued 1your beloved]. Deliver with your right hand, and heed me! 7 God spoke in his holy place. I shall be raised up high, and I shall divide Shechem into parts; and the valley of the tents I will measure out. 8Mine is Gilead; and mine is Manasseh; and Ephraim is the assistance of my head; 9Judah is my king; Moab the kettle of my hope; upon Edom I will put my sandal; [3to me 1the Philistines 2are submitted]. 10Who shall take me away into a city of a citadel? or who shall guide me to Edom? 11Is it not you, O God, the one thrusting us away? And will you not go forth, O God, with our forces? 12Give to us help from out of affliction, for [3is vain 1deliverance 2of man]! 13In God we shall execute power, and he shall treat [2with contempt 1our enemies].
