Bible: Psalm 108
Psalm 108 1
108:1 A song, a psalm of David.
I am determined, 2 O God!
I will sing and praise you with my whole heart. 3
108:2 Awake, O stringed instrument and harp!
I will wake up at dawn! 4
108:3 I will give you thanks before the nations, O
I will sing praises to you before foreigners! 5
108:4 For your loyal love extends beyond the sky, 6
and your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
108:5 Rise up 7 above the sky, O God!
May your splendor cover the whole earth! 8
108:6 Deliver by your power 9 and answer me,
so that the ones you love may be safe. 10
108:7 God has spoken in his sanctuary: 11
“I will triumph! I will parcel out Shechem,
the valley of Succoth I will measure off. 12
108:8 Gilead belongs to me,
as does Manasseh! 13
Ephraim is my helmet, 14
Judah my royal scepter. 15
108:9 Moab is my wash basin. 16
I will make Edom serve me. 17
I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”
108:10 Who will lead me into the fortified city?
Who will bring me to Edom? 18
108:11 Have you not rejected us, O God?
O God, you do not go into battle with our armies.
108:12 Give us help against the enemy,
for any help men might offer is futile. 19
108:13 By God’s power we will conquer; 20
he will trample down 21 our enemies.
