To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. ▼
▼Michtam: or, A golden Psalm, ▼
▼scattered: Heb. broken2Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal its breaches; for it shaketh. 3Thou hast shown thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. 4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. 5That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me. 6God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth. 7Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of my head; Judah is my lawgiver; 8Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me. ▼
▼triumph...: or, triumph thou over me: (by an irony)9Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? ▼
▼strong...: Heb. city of strength?10Wilt thou not, O God, who hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, who didst not go out with our armies? 11Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. ▼
▼help of man: Heb. salvation, etc12Through God we shall do valiantly: for he will tread down our enemies.
