1 For the leader. Set to "Lily of Testimony."A mikhtam of David for teaching about when he fought with Aram-Naharayim and with Aram-Tzovah, and Yo'av returned and killed 12,000 from Edom in the Salt Valley: God, you rejected us; you crushed us; you were angry; but now revive us. 1 You have rejected us, O God, and burst forth upon us; you have been angry--now restore us!
2 You made the land shake, split it apart; now repair the rifts, for it is collapsing. 2 You have shaken the land and torn it open; mend its fractures, for it is quaking.
3 You made your people suffer hard times, had us drink a wine that made us stagger. 3 You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.
4 To those who fear you because of the truth you gave a banner to rally around, (Selah) 4 But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow. "Selah"
5 so that those you love could be rescued; so save with your right hand, and answer us! 5 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.
6 God in his holiness spoke, and I took joy [in his promise]: "I will divide Sh'khem and determine the shares in the Sukkot Valley. 6 God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Succoth.
7 Gil'ad is mine and M'nasheh mine, Efrayim my helmet, Y'hudah my scepter. 7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.
8 Mo'av is my washpot; on Edom I throw my shoe; P'leshet, be crushed because of me!" 8 Moab is my washbasin, upon Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph."
9 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? 9 Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
10 God, have you rejected us? You don't go out with our armies, God. 10 Is it not you, O God, you who have rejected us and no longer go out with our armies?
11 Help us against our enemy, for human help is worthless. 11 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.
12 With God's help we will fight valiantly, for he will trample our enemies. 12 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
