2 You made the land quake. You split it wide open. Heal the cracks in it because it is falling apart. 2 You have shaken the land and torn it open; mend its fractures, for it is quaking.
3 You have made your people experience hardships. You have given us wine that makes us stagger. 3 You have shown your people desperate times; 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 4 But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow. "Selah"
5 Save [us] with your powerful hand, and answer us so that those who are dear to you may be rescued. 5 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.

10 Isn't it you, O God, who rejected us? Isn't it you, O God, who refused to accompany 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 against the enemy because human assistance is worthless. 11 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.
12 With God we will display great strength. He will trample our enemies. 12 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
