108:1 A Song, a Psalm of David.

108:2 My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory.

108:3 Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake the dawn.

108:4 I will give thanks unto Thee, O the Lord, among the peoples; and I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations.

108:5 For Thy mercy is great above the heavens, and Thy truth reacheth unto the skies.

108:6 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and Thy glory be above all the earth.

108:7 That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand, and answer me.

108:8 God spoke in His holiness, that I would exult; that I would divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

108:9 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre.

108:10 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom do I cast my shoe; over Philistia do I cry aloud.

108:11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me unto Edom?

108:12 Hast not Thou cast us off, O God? and Thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts?

108:13 Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man.

108:14 Through God we shall do valiantly; for He it is that will tread down our adversaries.
