PSALM 108 God Praised and Supplicated to Give Victory. A Song, a Psalm of David. 108 1My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my [E]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 [F]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 [G]helmet of My head; Judah is My [H]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 [I]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 [J]by man is in vain. 13[K]Through God we will do valiantly, And it is He who shall tread down our adversaries.
