|God Praised, and Supplicated to Give Victory|
|A Song, A Psalm of David.|
| ||MY heart is fixed, O God;|
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory.
| ||Awake, psaltery and harp:|
I myself will awake 1 right early.
| ||I will give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah, among the peoples;|
And I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
| ||For thy lovingkindness is great above the heavens;|
And thy truth reacheth unto the skies.
| ||Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens,|
And thy glory above all the earth.
| ||That thy beloved may be delivered,|
Save with thy right hand, and answer us. 2
| ||God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult;|
I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
| ||Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;|
Ephraim also is the defence of my head;
Judah is my sceptre. 3
| ||Moab is my washpot;|
Upon 4 Edom will I cast my shoe;
Over Philistia will I shout.
| ||Who will bring me into the fortified city?|
Who hath 5 led me unto Edom?
| ||Hast 6 not thou cast us off, O God?|
And thou goest not forth, O God, with out hosts.
| ||Give us help against the adversary;|
For vain is the help 7 of man.
| ||Through God we shall do valiantly:|
For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
