1 To the chiefe Musician vpon Shushan-Eduth Michtam of Dauid, to teach. When hee stroue with Aram Naharaim, and with Aram Zobah, when Ioab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt, twelue thousand. O God, thou hast cast vs off; thou hast scattered vs, thou hast bene displeased, O turne thy selfe to vs againe.
2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heale the breaches thereof, for it shaketh.
3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made vs to drinke the wine of astonishment.
4 Thou hast giuen a banner to them that feare thee: that it may be displayed because of the trueth. Selah.
5 That thy beloued may be deliuered; saue with thy right hand, and heare mee.
6 God hath spoken in his holinesse, I wil reioyce: I will diuide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Iudah is my Lawgiuer.
8 Moab is my wash-pot, ouer Edom wil I cast out my shooe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
9 Who wil bring me into the strong citie? who will lead me into Edom?
10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast vs off? and thou, O God, which didst not goe out with our armies.
11 Giue vs helpe from trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
12 Through God wee shall doe valiantly: for he it is that shall tread downe our enemies.
