Psalm 108

Assurance of God’s Victory Over Enemies

A Song. A Psalm of David.

1 O aGod, my heart is steadfast;

I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

2 bAwake, lute and harp!

I will awaken the dawn.

3 I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples,

And I will sing praises to You among the nations.

4 For Your mercy is great above the 1heavens,

And Your truth reaches to the clouds.

5 cBe exalted, O God, above the heavens,

And Your glory above all the earth;

6 dThat Your beloved may be delivered,

Save with Your right hand, and 2hear me.

7 God has spoken in His holiness:

“I will rejoice;

I will divide Shechem

And measure out the Valley of Succoth.

8 Gilead is Mine; Manasseh is Mine;

Ephraim also is the 3helmet for My head;

eJudah is My lawgiver.

9 Moab is My washpot;

Over Edom I will cast My shoe;

Over Philistia I will triumph.”

10 fWho will bring me into the strong city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

11 Is it not You, O God, who cast us off?

And You, O God, who did not go out with our armies?

12 Give us help from trouble,

For the help of man is useless.

13 gThrough God we will do valiantly,

For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
