Amplified Bible

Psalm 108

Praise and Supplication to God for Victory.

A Song. A Psalm of David.

1O God, my heart is steadfast [with confident faith];
I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul.

Awake, harp and lyre;
I will awaken the dawn!

I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the people;
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.

For Your lovingkindness is great and higher than the heavens;
Your truth reaches to the skies.

Be exalted [in majesty], O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth.

That Your beloved [ones] may be rescued,
Save with Your right hand, and answer me!


God has spoken in His [a]holiness:
“I will rejoice, I will portion out Shechem [as I divide Canaan among My people],
And measure out the Valley of Succoth.

“Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the helmet of My head [My stronghold, My defense];
Judah is My [b]scepter.

“Moab is My washbowl;
Over Edom I will throw My shoe [to show Edom is Mine];
Over Philistia I will shout [in triumph].”

10 
Who will bring me into the fortified city [of Petra]?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11 
Have You not rejected us, O God?
And will You not go out, O God, with our armies?
12 
Give us help against the adversary,
For deliverance by man is in vain [a worthless hope].
13 
[c]With God we will do valiantly,
For it is He who will trample down our enemies.

King James Version

Psalm 108

1O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.

Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;

That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.

God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.

10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
