Psalm 108 New Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Help against the Foe

108 1  My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make melody. Awake, my soul! 2  Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn. 3  I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples, and I will sing praises to you among the nations. 4  For your steadfast love is higher than the heavens, and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. 5  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth.

6  Give victory with your right hand, and answer me, so that those whom you love may be rescued. 7  God has promised in his sanctuary: "With exultation I will divide up Shechem, and portion out the Vale of Succoth. 8  Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter. 9  Moab is my washbasin; on Edom I hurl my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph." 10  Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? 11  Have you not rejected us, O God? You do not go out, O God, with our armies. 12  O grant us help against the foe, for human help is worthless. 13  With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
