Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 1 You have rejected us, O God, and burst forth upon us; you have been angry--now restore us!
2 By the power of your hand the earth is shaking and broken; make it strong again, for it is moved. 2 You have shaken the land and torn it open; mend its fractures, for it is quaking.
3 You have made the people see hard times; you have given us the wine of shaking for our drink. 3 You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.
4 Give a safe place to those who have fear of you, where they may go in flight from before the bow. (Selah.) 4 But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow. "Selah"
5 So that your loved ones may be made safe, let your right hand be my salvation, and give me an answer. 5 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.
6 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. 6 God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver; 7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.
8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I put out my shoe; over Philistia will a glad cry be sounded. 8 Moab is my washbasin, upon Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph."
9 Who will take me into the strong town? who will be my guide into Edom? 9 Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
10 Have not you put us away, O God? and you have not gone out with our armies. 10 Is it not you, O God, you who have rejected us and no longer go out with our armies?
11 Give us help in our trouble; for there is no help in man. 11 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.
12 Through God we will do great things, for through him our haters will be crushed under our feet. 12 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
