New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, you have turned away from us. You have attacked us. You have been angry. Now turn back to us! 1 You have rejected us, O God, and burst forth upon us; you have been angry--now restore us!
2 You have shaken the land and torn it open. Fix its cracks, 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 shown your people hard times. You have made us drink the wine of your anger. Now we can't even walk straight. 3 You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.
4 But you lead into battle those who have respect for you. You give them a flag to wave against the enemy's weapons. "Selah" 4 But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow. "Selah"
5 Save us. Help us with your powerful right hand, so that those you love may be saved. 5 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.
6 God has spoken from his temple. He has said, "I will win the battle. Then I will divide up the land around Shechem. I will divide up 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 belongs to me. So does the land of Manasseh. Ephraim is the strongest tribe. It is like a helmet for my head. Judah is the royal tribe. It is like a ruler's staff. 7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.
8 Moab serves me like one who washes my feet. I toss my sandal on Edom to show that I own it. I shout to Philistia that I have won the battle." 8 Moab is my washbasin, upon Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph."
9 Who will bring me to the city that has high walls around it? Who will lead me to the land of Edom? 9 Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
10 God, isn't it you, even though you have now turned away from us? Isn't it you, even though you don't lead our armies into battle anymore? 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 enemies. The help people give doesn't amount to anything. 11 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.
12 With your help we will win the battle. You will walk all over our enemies. 12 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
