 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.
  1 - My glory David has dedicated his talents to God.
 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.
  9 - Edom See nu2014.
 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.
