Psalm 108 Bible in Basic English

A Prayer for Help against the Foe

108 1  O God, my heart is fixed; I will make songs and melody, even with my glory. 2  Give out your sounds, O corded instruments: the dawn will be awaking with my song. 3  I will give you praise, O Lord, among the peoples; I will make melody to you among the nations. 4  For your mercy is higher than the heavens: and your unchanging faith than the clouds. 5  Be lifted up, O God, higher than the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

6  Let your right hand be stretched out for salvation, and give me an answer, so that your loved ones may be safe from danger. 7  This is the word of the holy God: I will be glad; I will make Shechem a heritage, measuring out the valley of Succoth. 8  Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver; 9  Moab is my washpot; on Edom is the resting-place of my shoe; over Philistia will I send out a glad cry. 10  Who will take me into the strong town? who will be my guide into Edom? 11  Have you not sent us away from you, O God? and you go not out with our armies. 12  Give us help in our trouble; for there is no help in man. 13  With God we will do great things; for by him will our haters be crushed underfoot.
