Psalms 108

A Song, a Psalm of David. My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory. Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake the dawn. I will give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the peoples; and I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations. For Thy mercy is great above the heavens, and Thy truth reacheth unto the skies. Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and Thy glory be above all the earth.

That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand, and answer me. God spoke in His holiness, that I would exult; that I would divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre. 10 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom do I cast my shoe; over Philistia do I cry aloud. 11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me unto Edom? 12 Hast not Thou cast us off, O God? and Thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts? 13 Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man. 14 Through God we shall do valiantly; for He it is that will tread down our adversaries.
