¶ A song of Psalm of David.O God, my heart is ready to sing, and to give praise. Awake, O my glory, awake lute and harp, I myself will awake right early. I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the people, I will sing praises unto thee among the Heathen. For the greatness of thy mercy is higher then the heavens, and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory above all the earth.
¶ That thy beloved may be delivered: help then with thy right hand, and hear me. God hath spoken in his Sanctuary, which thing rejoiceth me. I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, Manasses is mine, Ephraim is the strength of mine head, Iudah is my captain. Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I stretch out my shoe, Philistia shall be glad of me. Who will lead me into the strong city? Who will bring me into Edom? Shalt not thou do it (O God) which hast cast us out: thou God, that wentest not forth with our Hosts? O be thou our help in trouble, for vain is the help of man. Thorow God we shall do great acts, for it is he that shall tread down our enemies.
