Chapter 108

David's confidence in God's help. (A Song or Psalm of David.)

1)O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

2)Awake, psaltery and harp; I myself will awake early.

3)I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people; and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

4)For thy mercy is great above the heavens; and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.

5)Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth;

6)That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and answer me.

7)God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

8)Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine 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)Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

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.
