1 A Song [or] Psalm of David. O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself] will awake early.
3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4 For thy mercy [is] great above the heavens: and thy truth [reacheth] unto the clouds.
5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save [with] thy right hand, and answer me.
7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8 Gilead [is] mine; Manasseh [is] mine; Ephraim also [is] the strength of mine head; Judah [is] my lawgiver;
9 Moab [is] my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
11 [Wilt] not [thou], O God, [who] hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12 Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that] shall tread down our enemies.
King James Version
1 A Song, a Psalm of David. Prepared is my heart, O God, I sing, yea, I sing praise, also my honour.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp, I awake the dawn.
3 I thank Thee among peoples, O Jehovah, And I praise Thee among the nations.
4 For great above the heavens [is] Thy kindness, And unto the clouds Thy truth.
5 Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God, And above all the earth Thy honour.
6 That Thy beloved ones may be delivered, Save [with] Thy right hand, and answer us.
7 God hath spoken in His holiness: I exult, I apportion Shechem, And the valley of Succoth I measure,
8 Mine [is] Gilead, mine [is] Manasseh, And Ephraim [is] the strength of my head, Judah [is] my lawgiver,
9 Moab [is] a pot for my washing, Upon Edom I cast my shoe, Over Philistia I shout habitually.
10 Who doth bring me in to the fenced city? Who hath led me unto Edom?
11 Hast not Thou, O God, cast us off? And Thou goest not out, O God, with our hosts!
12 Give to us help from adversity, And vain is the salvation of man.
13 In God we do mightily, And He doth tread down our adversaries!
