The One Hundred Eighth Psalm

Paratum cor meum.


O GOD, my heart is ready, my heart is ready; * I will sing, and give praise with the best member that I have.
 
Awake, thou lute and harp; * I myself will awake right early.
 
I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the peoples; * I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
 
For thy mercy is greater than the heavens, * and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
 
Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens, * and thy glory above all the earth;
 

 
vs 6 That thy beloved may be delivered: * let thy right hand save them, and hear thou me.
 

 
vs 7 God hath spoken in his holiness; * I will rejoice therefore, and divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
 
Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; * Ephraim also is the strength of my head; Judah is my lawgiver;
 
Moab is my wash-pot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; * upon Philistia will I triumph.
 
Who will lead me into the strong city? * and who will bring me into Edom?
 
Hast not thou forsaken us, O God? * and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
 
O help us against the enemy: * for vain is the help of man.
 
Through God we shall do great acts; * and it is he that shall tread down our enemies.
