A Song of a Psalm of David
1 Prepared is my heart, O God! prepared is my heart, I will chant and will sing psalms, even with my glory.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I will arise at the dawn of day.
3 I will celebrate thee, among the peoples, O Jehovah! And will sing psalms to thee among the nations:
4 For great above the heavens, is thy goodness; And unto the clouds is thy truth.
5 Be thou exalted above the heavens, O God! And above all the earth thy glory:
6 That thy beloved ones may be delivered: Save by thy right hand, and hear me.
7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice: I will divide Shechem, And the valley of Succoth I will measure.
8 Mine is Gilead, mine is Manasseh; And Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah my lawgiver.
9 Moab the pot for my washing; Over Edom will I cast my shoe; Over Palestina will I triumph.
10 Who will lead me into the city fortified? Who will lead me even into Edom?
11 Wilt not thou, O God! who hadst cast us off? And [thou] O God! [who] didst not go forth with our armies?
12 Grant us relief from trouble; For vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do valiantly, And he shall tread down our adversaries.
