The Holy Bible: King James Version. 2000. The Psalms
A Prayer for Help against the Foe
To the chief Musician upon Shu'shane'duth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with A'ramnahara'im and with A'ramzo'bah, when Jo'ab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand. 2.1-- 0.1 ; 0.8 ; 3.8 · 1 Chr. 18.12
O God, thou hast cast us off,
thou has scattered us,
thou hast been displeased;
O turn thyself to us again.
Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it:
heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
Thou hast showed thy people hard things:
thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee,
that it may be displayed because of the truth.
That thy beloved may be delivered;
save with thy right hand, and hear me.
God hath spoken in his holiness;
I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem,
and mete out the valley of Succoth.
Gil'e-ad is mine, and Manas'seh is mine;
E'phra-im also is the strength of mine head;
Judah is my lawgiver;
Moab is my washpot;
over Edom will I cast out my shoe:
Philis'ti-a, triumph thou because of me.
Who will bring me into the strong city?
Who will lead me into Edom?
Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off?
and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
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.
