1 To the Chief Musician. On the Lily of Testimony. A secret treasure of David, to teach; when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram of Zobah, when Joab returned and struck twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt. O God, You have cast us off, You have scattered us, You were angry; take us back.
2 You made the earth tremble; You tore it; heal the breaks of it, for it is shaking.
3 You have shown Your people hard things; You have made us to drink the wine of trembling.
4 You have given a banner to those who fear You, to lift it up because of the truth. Selah.
5 Save [with] Your right hand and answer me, that Your beloved may be delivered.
6 God has spoken in His holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead [is] Mine, and Manasseh [is] Mine; and Ephraim [is] the strength of My head, Judah [is] My lawgiver;
8 Moab [is] My washpot; over Edom I will cast out My shoe; over Philistia I cry in triumph.
9 Who will bring me [into] the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom?
10 Have not You, O God, cast us off? And will You, O God, not go out with our armies?
11 Give us help against [our] foe; for vain [is] the help of man.
12 Through God we shall do great things; for [it is] He who shall trample our enemies.
