Psalms 108

A Plea for Victory

1A song. A Davidic psalm.

My heart is confident, God;
Some Hb mss, LXX, Syr add my heart is confident

I will sing; I will sing praises
with the whole of my being.
Lit praises, even my glory
2 Wake up, harp and lyre!
I will wake up the dawn. d
3 I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to You among the nations. e
4 For Your faithful love is higher than the heavens,
and Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. f
5 God, be exalted above the heavens, g
and let Your glory be over the whole earth. h
6 Save with Your right hand and answer me
so that those You love may be rescued. i

7 God has spoken in His sanctuary:
Or has promised by His holy nature

“I will triumph!
I will divide up Shechem. k
I will apportion the Valley of Succoth. l
8 Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine,
and Ephraim is My helmet; m
Judah is My scepter. n
9 Moab is My washbasin; o
I throw My sandal on Edom. p
I shout in triumph over Philistia.” q

10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom? r
11 God, haven’t You rejected us?
God, You do not march out with our armies. s
12 Give us aid against the foe,
for human help is worthless. t
13 With God we will perform valiantly; u
He will trample our foes. v
