Psalm 108

Praise and Prayer for Victory

A Song. A Psalm of David.

1

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;

I will sing and make melody.

Awake, my soul!

2

Awake, O harp and lyre!

I will awake the dawn.

3

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples,

and I will sing praises to you among the nations.

4

For your steadfast love is higher than the heavens,

and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

 

5

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,

and let your glory be over all the earth.

6

Give victory with your right hand, and answer me,

so that those whom you love may be rescued.

 

7

God has promised in his sanctuary:

“With exultation I will divide up Shechem,

and portion out the Vale of Succoth.

8

Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;

Ephraim is my helmet;

Judah is my scepter.

9

Moab is my washbasin;

on Edom I hurl my shoe;

over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

 

10

Who will bring me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

11

Have you not rejected us, O God?

You do not go out, O God, with our armies.

12

O grant us help against the foe,

for human help is worthless.

13

With God we shall do valiantly;

it is he who will tread down our foes.
