Psalm 108

King James Version

See Chapter Notes:

 O 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.

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