שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. נָכוֹן לִבִּי אֱלֹהִים
This is one of the psalms which St. Benedict of Nursia did not specify the use, in the Rule of St. Benedict of 530AD. However, Psalm 108 was traditionally performed by his order to the celebration matins of Saturday,. or according to another document of the founder or according to one of his successors, so that all 150 psalms are executed each Week.
In the Liturgy of Hours, Psalm 108 is read to the Office of Lauds of Wednesday of the fourth semaine.
Spurgeon called the psalm "The Warrior's Morning Song, with which he adores his God and strengthens his heart before entering upon the conflicts of the day." While Henry calls it "An assurance of Gods answer and salvation".
