A Song, a Psalm of David.
Prepared is my heart, O God, I sing, yea, I sing praise,
also my honour.
Awake, psaltery and harp, I awake the dawn.
I thank Thee among peoples, O Jehovah, And I praise Thee
among the nations.
For great above the heavens is Thy kindness, And unto
the clouds Thy truth.
Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God, And above all the
earth Thy honour.
That Thy beloved ones may be delivered, Save with Thy
right hand, and answer us.
God hath spoken in His holiness: I exult, I apportion
Shechem, And the valley of Succoth I measure,
Mine is Gilead, mine is Manasseh, And Ephraim is
the strength of my head, Judah is my lawgiver,
Moab is a pot for my washing, Upon Edom I cast my
shoe, Over Philistia I shout habitually.
Who doth bring me in to the fenced city? Who hath led me
Hast not Thou, O God, cast us off? And Thou goest not out, O
God, with our hosts!
Give to us help from adversity, And vain is the salvation of
In God we do mightily, And He doth tread down our adversaries!
