International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A song. A Davidic psalm.

A Plea for Victory

1My heart is firm, God;

I will sing and praise you with my whole being.

2Awake, harp and lyre!

I will wake up at dawn.

3I will give thanks to you among the peoples, LORD!

I will sing praise to you among the nations.

4For your gracious love extends to the sky,a

and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

5May you be exalted above the heavens, God,

and your glory be over all the earth.

6In order that those you love may be rescued,

deliver with your powerb and answer me!

7God had promised in his sanctuary:

“I will triumph and divide Shechem,

then I will measure the valley of Succoth!

8Gilead and Manasseh belong to me,

while Ephraim is my chief stronghold

and Judah is my scepter.

9Moab is my washbasin;

I will fling my shoe on Edom

and shout over Philistia.”

10Who will lead me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me as far as Edom?

11God, you have rejected us, have you not,

since you did not march out with our army, God?

12Give us help against the enemy,

because human help is useless.c

13I will find strength in God,

for he will trample on our foes.

a 108:4 Or is great above the heavens
b 108:6 Lit. right hand
c 108:12 Or vain
