1: A Song, a Psalm of David. Prepared is my heart, O God, I sing, yea, I sing praise, also my honour. 2: Awake, psaltery and harp, I awake the dawn. 3: I thank Thee among peoples, O Jehovah, And I praise Thee among the nations. 4: For great above the heavens [is] Thy kindness, And unto the clouds Thy truth. 5: Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God, And above all the earth Thy honour. 6: That Thy beloved ones may be delivered, Save [with] Thy right hand, and answer us. 7: God hath spoken in His holiness: I exult, I apportion Shechem, And the valley of Succoth I measure, 8: Mine [is] Gilead, mine [is] Manasseh, And Ephraim [is] the strength of my head, Judah [is] my lawgiver, 9: Moab [is] a pot for my washing, Upon Edom I cast my shoe, Over Philistia I shout habitually. 10: Who doth bring me in to the fenced city? Who hath led me unto Edom? 11: Hast not Thou, O God, cast us off? And Thou goest not out, O God, with our hosts! 12: Give to us help from adversity, And vain is the salvation of man. 13: In God we do mightily, And He doth tread down our adversaries!
