O a GOD, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. 2 b Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn. 3 I will praise You, O LORD, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations. 4 For Your mercy is great above the 1 heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the clouds.
c Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth; 6 d That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and 2 hear me.
God has spoken in His holiness:
"I will rejoice;
I will divide Shechem
And measure out the Valley of Succoth. 8 Gilead is Mine; Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the 3 helmet for My head;
e Judah is My lawgiver. 9 Moab is My washpot;
Over Edom I will cast My shoe;
Over Philistia I will triumph."
f Who will bring me into the strong city?
Who will lead me to Edom? 11 Is it not You, O God, who cast us off?
And You, O God, who did not go out with our armies? 12 Give us help from trouble,
For the help of man is useless. 13 g Through God we will do valiantly,
For it is He who shall tread down our enemies. 4
