A song of confidence in God
A Song or Psalm of David.
Ps. 57:7O God, my heart is fixed;
I will sing and give praise,
Even with my glory.
Ps. 57:8-11Awake, 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.
Ps. 57:5,11Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens:
And thy glory above all the earth.
Ps. 60:5That 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;
Gen. 49:10Judah is my lawgiver;
Moab is my washpot;
Over Edom will I cast out my shoe;
Over Philistia will I triumph.
Ps. 60:9Who will bring me into the strong city?
Who will lead me into Edom?
Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off?
And wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
Give us help from trouble:
For vain is the help of man.
Ps. 60:12Through God we shall do valiantly:
For he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
A cry to God for help
