Psalm of David
1 O God, my heart is faithful stablefixed. I will sing and give praise with my entire being.
2 Awake, lute and harp for I will awake early.
3 I will praise you, O Jehovah, among the people. I will sing praises to you among the nations.
4 Your loving kindness is higher then the heavens. Your truth reaches unto the clouds.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens: and your glory above all the earth.
6 Save us with your powerful hand great power, and answer us so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.
7 God has 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 my head; Judah is my lawgiver;
9 Moab is my wash pot; 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 Will you O God, who cast us off? Will you O God, go forth with our hosts?
12 Give us help against the enemy, for mans help is in vain.
13 Through God we shall have great strength: for he shall tread down our enemies.
