He Will Tread Down Our Foes
To the choirmaster: according to aShushan Eduth. A bMiktam ▼▼Probably musical or liturgical terms of David; dfor instruction; when he estrove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return struck down twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt. 1 O God, fyou have rejected us, gbroken our defenses;
you have been angry; hoh, restore us.
2You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
irepair its breaches, for it totters.
3 jYou have made your people see hard things;
kyou have given us lwine to drink that made us stagger.
4 You have set up ma banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it nfrom the bow. ▼
▼Or that it may be displayed because of truthSelah
5 pThat your qbeloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6 God has spoken rin his holiness: ▼
“With exultation tI will divide up uShechem
and portion out the Vale of vSuccoth.
7 wGilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
xEphraim is ymy helmet;
Judah is my zscepter.
8 aaMoab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I abcast my shoe;
over acPhilistia I shout in triumph.” ▼
▼Revocalization (compare Psalm 108:10); Masoretic Text over me, O Philistia, shout in triumph
9 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
aeWho will lead me to Edom?
10Have you not afrejected us, O God?
You agdo not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for ahvain is the salvation of man!
12With God we shall aido valiantly;
it is he who will ajtread down our foes.
