108 God, my heart is ·steady [steadfast; ready]. I will sing and ·praise [play a psalm for] you ·with all my being [L as will my soul/or glory]. 2 Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn. 3 Lord, I will ·praise [thank] you among the ·nations [peoples]; I will sing ·songs of praise [psalms] about you to all the nations. 4 Your great ·love [loyalty] ·reaches to [is greater than] the ·skies [heavens], your ·truth [faithfulness] to the heavens. 5 God, you are ·supreme [exalted] above the ·skies [heavens]. Let your glory [C manifest presence] be over all the earth [57:5–11].
6 Answer us and ·save us [give us victory] by your ·power [L right hand] so ·the people you love [your beloved] will be rescued. 7 God has said ·from his Temple [L from his Holy Place; or in his holiness], “·When I win [or With joy], I will ·divide [parcel up] Shechem and measure off the Valley of Succoth [Gen. 33:17–20]. 8 Gilead and Manasseh are mine. Ephraim is like my helmet. Judah holds my royal scepter [Gen. 49:10; C they are agents of God’s power]. 9 Moab is like my washbowl. I throw my sandals at Edom [C showing contempt]. I shout [C in triumph] at Philistia [C enemies of Israel].”
10 Who will bring me to the ·strong, walled [fortified] city? Who will lead me to Edom? 11 God, ·surely you have rejected [L have you not rejected…?] us; you do not go out with our armies. 12 ·Help us fight the enemy [L Give us help against the foe]. Human ·help [aid] is useless, 13 but we can ·win [fight bravely] with God’s help. He will ·defeat [tread on] our ·enemies [foes; 60:5–12].
