Psalm 108[a]

A song; a psalm by David.

My heart is confident, O Elohim.
    I want to sing and make music even with my soul.[b]
Wake up, harp and lyre!
    I want to wake up at dawn.
I want to give thanks to you among the people, O Yahweh.
    I want to make music to praise you among the nations
because your mercy is higher than the heavens.
    Your truth reaches the skies.

May you be honored above the heavens, O Elohim.
    Let your glory extend over the whole earth.

Save us with your powerful hand, and answer us
    so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.

Elohim has promised the following through his holiness:
    “I will triumph!
        I will divide Shechem.
        I will measure the valley of Succoth.
        Gilead is mine.
        Manasseh is mine.
        Ephraim is the helmet on my head.
        Judah is my scepter.
        Moab is my washtub.
        I will throw my shoe over Edom.
        I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”

10 Who will bring me into the fortified city?
    Who will lead me to Edom?
11 Isn’t it you, O Elohim, who rejected us?
    Isn’t it you, O Elohim, who refused to accompany our armies?

12 Give us help against the enemy
    because human assistance is worthless.
13 With Elohim we will display great strength.
    He will trample our enemies.
