New American Bible (Revised Edition)
7 Help with your right hand and answer us
that your loved ones may escape.
8 God speaks in his holiness:[a](A)
“I will exult, I will apportion Shechem;
the valley of Succoth I will measure out.
9 Gilead is mine, mine is Manasseh;
Ephraim is the helmet for my head,
Judah, my scepter.
10 Moab is my washbowl;
upon Edom I cast my sandal;(B)
I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”
11 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me into Edom?
12 Was it not you who rejected us, God?
Do you no longer march with our armies?(C)
13 Give us aid against the foe;
worthless is human help.
14 We will triumph with the help of God,
who will trample down our foes.
- 108:8 Holiness: may also be translated as “sanctuary” or as referring to God’s heavenly abode.
New International Version
7 God has spoken(A) from his sanctuary:(B)
“In triumph I will parcel out Shechem(C)
and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth.(D)
8 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine;
Ephraim is my helmet,
Judah(E) is my scepter.
9 Moab(F) is my washbasin,
on Edom(G) I toss my sandal;
over Philistia(H) I shout in triumph.”
10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11 Is it not you, God, you who have rejected us
and no longer go out with our armies?(I)
12 Give us aid against the enemy,
for human help is worthless.(J)
13 With God we will gain the victory,
and he will trample down(K) our enemies.
