He Will Tread Down Our Foes
To the choirmaster: according to a Shushan Eduth. A b Miktam
Probably musical or liturgical terms of David; d for instruction; when he e strove 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, f you have rejected us, g broken our defenses;
you have been angry; h oh, restore us.
2 You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
i repair its breaches, for it totters.
3 j You have made your people see hard things;
k you have given us l wine to drink that made us stagger.
4 You have set up m a banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it n from the bow. ▼
▼ Or that it may be displayed because of truthSelah
5 p That your q beloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6 God has spoken r in his holiness: ▼
▼ Or sanctuary
“With exultation t I will divide up u Shechem
and portion out the Vale of v Succoth.
7 w Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
x Ephraim is y my helmet;
Judah is my z scepter.
8 aa Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I ab cast my shoe;
over ac Philistia 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?
ae Who will lead me to Edom?
10 Have you not af rejected us, O God?
You ag do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11 Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for ah vain is the salvation of man!
12 With God we shall ai do valiantly;
it is he who will aj tread down our foes.
