1My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! 2Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! 3I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. 4For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. 5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! 6That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer me! 7God has promised in his holiness: “With exultation I will divide up Shechem and portion out the Valley of Succoth. 8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter. 9Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph.” 10Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? 11Have you not rejected us, O God? You do not go out, O God, with our armies. 12Oh grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man! 13With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
