A Song or Psalm of David.
1. My heart is prepared, O God! my heart is prepared; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.2. Awake, psaltery and harp: I will arise at break of day.3. I will praise thee, O Jehovah! among the people; and sing unto thee among the nations: 4. Because thy goodness is great above the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.5. Be thou, O God! exalted above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth: 6. That thy chosen may be set free, save me by thy right hand, and hear me.7. God has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and measure the valley of Succoth.8. Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is the strength of my head: Judah is my lawgiver. 9. Moab is the pot of my washing; over Edom I will cast my shoe; over Philistina I will triumph.10. Who will bring me into the fortified city? who will bring me even unto Edom? 11. Wilt not thou, O God! who hadst repulsed us? and wentest not out, O God! with our armies? 12. Lord us help out of our tribulations; because the help of man is vain.13. Through God we will do valiantly, and he shall trample under foot our enemies.
Because this psalm is composed of parts taken from the fifty-seventh and sixtieth psalms, it would be superfluous to repeat, in this place, what we have already said by way of exposition in those psalms.
