David, upon better hope, prayeth for deliverance. (To the chief Musician upon Sushane-duth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.)
1)O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; oh turn thyself to us again.
2)Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it; heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
3)Thou hast showed thy people hard things; thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
4)Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
5)That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
6)God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
7)Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
8)Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
9)Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
10)Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
11)Give us help from trouble; for vain is the help of man.
12)Through God we shall do valiantly; for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
