Ketuvim - Writings


Chapter 108

1 A Song, a Psalm of David.
2 My heart is steadfast, O G-d; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory.
3 Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake the dawn.
4 I will give thanks unto Thee, O HaShem, among the peoples; and I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations.
5 For Thy mercy is great above the heavens, and Thy truth reacheth unto the skies.
6 Be Thou exalted, O G-d, above the heavens; and Thy glory be above all the earth.
7 That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand, and answer me.
8 G-d spoke in His holiness, that I would exult; that I would divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
9 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre.
10 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom do I cast my shoe; over Philistia do I cry aloud.
11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me unto Edom?
12 Hast not Thou cast us off, O G-d? and Thou goest not forth, O G-d, with our hosts?
13 Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man.
14 Through G-d we shall do valiantly; for He it is that will tread down our adversaries.
