1 «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.» 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 beloued may be deliuered, helpe with thy right hand and heare 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 hadest cast vs off, & didest not go forth, O God, with our armies?
11 Giue vs helpe against trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
12 Through God we shall doe valiantly: for he shall tread downe our enemies.
