To the chief Musician *upon Shushan-eduth, ||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.
Thou hast been displeased; aaO turn thyself to us again.
bHeal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
3 cThou hast shewed thy people hard things:
4 Thou hast given fa banner to them that fear thee,
That it may be displayed because of gthe truth. Selah.
Save with thy right hand, and khear me.
6 God hath spoken lin his holiness;
I will rejoice, I will divide mShechem,
7 pGilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;
Judah is rmy lawgiver;
8 sMoab is my washpot;
9 Who will bring me into the †strong city?
Who will lead me into Edom?
10 Wilt not thou, O God, which xhadst cast us off?
xxAnd thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
For vain is the †help of man.
12 Through God we shall ydo valiantly:
For he it is that shall ztread down our enemies.
