Psalm 108 Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Help against the Foe

108 1  A Song. A Psalm of David. 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 thee, O Lord, among the peoples, I will sing praises to thee among the nations. 4  For thy steadfast love is great above the heavens, thy faithfulness reaches to the clouds. 5  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let thy glory be over all the earth!

6  That thy beloved may be delivered, give help by thy right hand, and answer me! 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; Manas'seh is mine; E'phraim is my helmet; Judah my scepter. 9  Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph." 10  Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? 11  Hast thou not rejected us, O God? Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies. 12  O grant us help against the foe, for vain is the help of man! 13  With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
