For the choir director; according to shushan eduth;[a] a miktam by David; for teaching. When David fought Aram Naharaim and Aram Zobah, and when Joab came back and killed 12,000 men from Edom in the Dead Sea region.
1 O God, you have rejected us. You have broken down our defenses. You have been angry. Restore us! 2 You made the land quake. You split it wide open. Heal the cracks in it because it is falling apart. 3 You have made your people experience hardships. You have given us wine that makes us stagger. 4 Yet, you have raised a flag for those who fear you so that they can rally to it when attacked by bows and arrows. Selah 5 Save us with your powerful hand, and answer us so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.[b]
6 God has promised the following through his holiness: “I will triumph! I will divide Shechem. I will measure the valley of Succoth. 7 Gilead is mine. Manasseh is mine. Ephraim is the helmet on my head. Judah is my scepter. 8 Moab is my washtub. I will throw my shoe over Edom. I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”
9 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? 10 Isn’t it you, O God, who rejected us? Isn’t it you, O God, who refused to accompany our armies?
11 Give us help against the enemy because human assistance is worthless. 12 With God we will display great strength. He will trample our enemies.
