A song. A melody of David.
108 My heart is steadfast, O God.
I will sing and make music with my whole being.*+
2 Do awake, O stringed instrument; you too, O harp.+
I will awaken the dawn.
3 I will praise you among the peoples, O Jehovah,
And I will sing praises* to you among the nations.
4 For your loyal love is great, as high as the heavens,+
And your faithfulness, up to the skies.
5 Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
May your glory be over all the earth.+
6 So that your loved ones may be rescued,
Save us with your right hand and answer me.+
7 God has spoken in his holiness:*
“I will exult, I will give out Sheʹchem+ as an inheritance,
And I will measure off the Valley* of Sucʹcoth.+
8 Gilʹe·ad+ belongs to me, as does Ma·nasʹseh,
And Eʹphra·im is the helmet* for my head;+
Judah is my commander’s staff.+
9 Moʹab is my washbasin.+
Over Eʹdom I will throw my sandal.+
Over Phi·lisʹti·a I will shout in triumph.”+
10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me as far as Eʹdom?+
11 Is it not you, O God, who have rejected us,
Our God, who no longer goes out with our armies?+
12 Help us in our distress,+
For salvation by humans is worthless.+
13 By God we will gain power,+
And he will trample on our adversaries.+
