Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Dauid incourageth himselfe to praise God. 5 Hee prayeth for Gods assistance according to his promise. 11 His confidence in Gods helpe.
[A song or Psalme of Dauid.] O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing & giue praise, euen with my glory.
Awake psaltery and harpe: I my selfe will awake early.
I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I wil sing praises vnto thee among the nations.
For thy mercy is great aboue the heauens: and thy trueth reacheth vnto the clouds.4
Be thou exalted, O God, aboue the heauens: and thy glory aboue all the earth:5
That thy beloued may bee deliuered: saue with thy right hand, and answere me.
God hath spoken in his holinesse, I wil reioyce, I will diuide Shechem: and mete out the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, Ephraim also is the strength of mine head: Iudah is my Lawgiuer.
Moab is my wash pot, ouer Edom wil I cast out my shooe: ouer Philistia will I triumph.
Who wil bring me into the strong citie? who will leade me into Edom?
Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast vs off? and wilt not thou, O God, goe foorth with our hostes?
Giue vs helpe from trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
Through God wee shall doe valiantly: for hee it is that shall tread downe our enemies.
