Assurance of God’s Victory over EnemiesA Song. A Psalm of David.
1O ⚓God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
2⚓Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
3I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
4For Your mercy is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the clouds.
5⚓Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth;
6⚓That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and hear me.
7God has spoken in His holiness:
“I will rejoice;
I will divide Shechem
And measure out the Valley of Succoth.
8Gilead is Mine; Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the helmet for My head;
⚓Judah is My lawgiver.
9Moab is My washpot;
Over Edom I will cast My shoe;
Over Philistia I will triumph.”
10⚓Who will bring me into the strong city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11Is it not You, O God, who cast us off?
And You, O God, who did not go out with our armies?
12Give us help from trouble,
For the help of man is useless.
13⚓Through God we will do valiantly,
For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.
