New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, you have rejected us and scattered us. You have been angry, but please come back to us. 1 You have rejected us, O God, and burst forth upon us; you have been angry--now restore us!
2 You made the earth shake and crack. Heal its breaks because it is shaking. 2 You have shaken the land and torn it open; mend its fractures, for it is quaking.
3 You have given your people trouble. You made us unable to walk straight, like people drunk with wine. 3 You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.
4 You have raised a banner to gather those who fear you. Now they can stand up against the enemy.Selah 4 But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow. "Selah"
5 Answer us and save us by your power so the people you love will be rescued. 5 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.
6 God has said from his Temple, "When I win, I will divide Shechem and measure off the Valley of Succoth. 6 God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead and Manasseh are mine. Ephraim is like my helmet. Judah holds my royal scepter. 7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.
8 Moab is like my washbowl. I throw my sandals at Edom. I shout at Philistia." 8 Moab is my washbasin, upon Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph."
9 Who will bring me to the strong, walled city? 9 Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
10 God, surely you have rejected us; you do not go 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 Help us fight the enemy. Human help is useless, 11 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.
12 but we can win with God's help. He will defeat our enemies. 12 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
