THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 108 ©
David excites himself to the praise and laudation of the Lord, praying withal for God’s assistance, fully assured that through His favorableness he shall have the upper hand of his enemies.
A Song or Psalm of David.
O1 GOD, my heart 2is fixed; I will sing and give praise, 3even with my glory.
Awake, psaltery and harp: 4I myself will awake early.
I will praise thee, O LORD, 5among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
Fora thy mercy is great above the heavens: and 6thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
That 7thy beloved may be 8delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer 9me.
10God hath spoken 11in his holiness; 12I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is 13the strength of mine head; Judah is 14my lawgiver;
15Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
Wiltb not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt 16not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
Give us help from trouble: for vain is the 17help of man.
18Through God we 19shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall 20tread down our enemies.
