|1||A Song. A Psalm. Of David.
O God, my heart is fixed; I will make songs and melody, even with my glory.
|2||Give out your sounds, O corded instruments: the dawn will be awaking with my song.|
|3||I will give you praise, O Lord, among the peoples; I will make melody to you among the nations.|
|4||For your mercy is higher than the heavens: and your unchanging faith than the clouds.|
|5||Be lifted up, O God, higher than the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.|
|6||Let your right hand be stretched out for salvation, and give me an answer, so that your loved ones may be safe from danger.|
|7||This is the word of the holy God: I will be glad; I will make Shechem a heritage, measuring out the valley of Succoth.|
|8||Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver;|
|9||Moab is my washpot; on Edom is the resting-place of my shoe; over Philistia will I send out a glad cry.|
|10||Who will take me into the strong town? who will be my guide into Edom?|
|11||Have you not sent us away from you, O God? and you go not out with our armies.|
|12||Give us help in our trouble; for there is no help in man.|
|13||With God we will do great things; for by him will our haters be crushed underfoot.|
