For teaching. When he was fighting against Aram-naharaim and Aramzobah, when Joab came back, and put twelve thousand of the Edomites to death, in the Valley of Salt.
|2||God, you have put us away from you, you have sent us in all directions, you have been angry; O be turned to us again.|
|3||By the power of your hand the earth is shaking and broken; make it strong again, for it is moved.|
|4||You have made the people see hard times; you have given us the wine of shaking for our drink.|
|5||Give a safe place to those who have fear of you, where they may go in flight from before the bow. (Selah.)|
|6||So that your loved ones may be made safe, let your right hand be my salvation, and give me an answer.|
|7||God has said in his holy place, I will be glad: I will make a division of Shechem, and the valley of Succoth will be measured out.|
|8||Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver;|
|9||Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I put out my shoe; over Philistia will a glad cry be sounded.|
|10||Who will take me into the strong town? who will be my guide into Edom?|
|11||Have not you put us away, O God? and you have not gone out with our armies.|
|12||Give us help in our trouble; for there is no help in man.|
|13||Through God we will do great things, for through him our haters will be crushed under our feet.|
