108 O God, my heart is steadfast [with confident faith]; I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul. 2 Awake, harp and lyre; I will awaken the dawn! 3 I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the people; And I will sing praises to You among the nations. 4 For Your lovingkindness is great and higher than the heavens; Your truth reaches to the skies. 5 Be exalted [in majesty], O God, above the heavens, And Your glory above all the earth. 6 That Your beloved [ones] may be rescued, Save with Your right hand, and answer me!
7 God has spoken in His [a]holiness: “I will rejoice, I will portion out Shechem [as I divide Canaan among My people], And measure out the Valley of Succoth. 8 “Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the helmet of My head [My stronghold, My defense]; Judah is My [b]scepter. 9 “Moab is My washbowl; Over Edom I will throw My shoe [to show Edom is Mine]; Over Philistia I will shout [in triumph].”
10 Who will bring me into the fortified city [of Petra]? Who will lead me to Edom? 11 Have You not rejected us, O God? And will You not go out, O God, with our armies? 12 Give us help against the adversary, For deliverance by man is in vain [a worthless hope]. 13 [c]With God we will do valiantly, For it is He who will trample down our enemies.
