Brenton Septuagint Translation
Israel's Kingdom Blessing
1Song of a Psalm by David. O God, my heart is ready, my heart is ready; I will sing and sing psalms with my glory.
2Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake early.
3I will give thanks to thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing praise to thee among the Gentiles.
4For thy mercy is great above the heavens, and thy truth reaches to the clouds.
5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth.
6That thy beloved ones may be delivered, save with thy right hand, and hear me. God has spoken in his sanctuary;
7I will be exalted, and will divide Sicima, and will measure out the valley of tents.
8Galaad is mine; and Manasses is mine; and Ephraim is the help of mine head; Judas is my king;
9Moab is the caldron of my hope; over Idumea will I cast my sandal; the Philistines are made subject to me.
10Who will bring me into the fortified city? or who will guide me to Idumea?
11Wilt not thou, O God, who hast rejected us? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12Give us help from tribulation: for vain is the help of man.
13Through God we shall do valiantly; and he will bring to nought our enemies.
