108 O God, my heart is ready to praise you! I will sing and rejoice before you.

Wake up, O harp and lyre! We will meet the dawn with song. I will praise you everywhere around the world, in every nation. For your loving-kindness is great beyond measure, high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches the skies. His glory is far more vast than the heavens. It towers above the earth. Hear the cry of your beloved child—come with mighty power and rescue me.

God has given sacred promises; no wonder I exult! He has promised to give us all the land of Shechem and also Succoth Valley. “Gilead is mine to give to you,” he says, “and Manasseh as well; the land of Ephraim is the helmet on my head. Judah is my scepter. But Moab and Edom are despised;[a] and I will shout in triumph over the Philistines.”

10 Who but God can give me strength to conquer these fortified cities? Who else can lead me into Edom?

11 Lord, have you thrown us away? Have you deserted our army? 12 Oh, help us fight against our enemies, for men are useless allies. 13 But with the help of God we shall do mighty acts of valor. For he treads down our foes.


  1. Psalm 108:9 But Moab and Edom are despised, literally, “Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe.”
