1My heart is steadfast, O God;
I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul.
2Awake, harp and lyre;
I will awaken the dawn!
3I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
4For Your lovingkindness is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the skies.
5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth.
6That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and answer me!
7God has spoken in His holiness:
“I will exult, I will portion out Shechem
And measure out the valley of Succoth.
8″Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the helmet of My head;
Judah is My scepter.
9″Moab is My washbowl;
Over Edom I shall throw My shoe;
Over Philistia I will shout aloud.”
10Who will bring me into the besieged city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us?
And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?
12Oh give us help against the adversary,
For deliverance by man is in vain.
13Through God we will do valiantly,
And it is He who shall tread down our adversaries.
