To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth,
Michtam of David, to teach;

when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah,
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;
O 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 shewed 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.
