1 Song of a Psalm by David.
2 O God, my heart is ready, my heart is ready; I will sing and sing psalms with my glory. 3 Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake early. 4 I will give thanks to thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing praise to thee among the Gentiles. 5 For thy mercy is great above the heavens, and thy truth reaches to the clouds. 6 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth. 7 That thy beloved ones may be delivered, save with thy right hand, and hear me. God has spoken in his sanctuary; 8 I will be exalted, and will divide Sicima, and will measure out the valley of tents. 9 Galaad is mine; and Manasses is mine; and Ephraim is the help of mine head; Judas is my king; 10 Moab is the caldron of my hope; over Idumea will I cast my sandal; the Philistines are made subject to me.
11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? or who will guide me to Idumea? 12 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast rejected us? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts? 13 Give us help from tribulation: for vain is the help of man. 14 Through God we shall * Gr. work power.do valiantly; and he will bring to nought our enemies.
