Urgent Prayer for the Restored Favor of God
To the Chief Musician. #Ps. 80Set to “Lily of the Testimony.” A Michtam of David. For teaching. #2 Sam. 8:3, 13; 1 Chr. 18:3When he fought against Mesopotamia and Syria of Zobah, and Joab returned and killed twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
1O God, #Ps. 44:9You have cast us off;
You have broken us down;
You have been displeased;
Oh, restore us again!
2You have made the earth tremble;
You have broken it;
#(2 Chr. 7:14); Is. 30:26Heal its breaches, for it is shaking.
3#Ps. 71:20You have shown Your people hard things;
#Is. 51:17, 22; Jer. 25:15You have made us drink the wine of confusion.
4#Ps. 20:5; Is. 5:26; 11:12; 13:2You have given a banner to those who fear You,
That it may be displayed because of the truth.
5#Ps. 108:6–13That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and hear me.
6God has #Ps. 89:35spoken in His holiness:
“I will rejoice;
I will #Josh. 1:6divide #Gen. 12:6Shechem
And measure out #Josh. 13:27the Valley of Succoth.
7Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;
#Deut. 33:17Ephraim also is the helmet for My head;
#(Gen. 49:10)Judah is My lawgiver.
8#2 Sam. 8:2Moab is My washpot;
#2 Sam. 8:14; Ps. 108:9Over Edom I will cast My shoe;
#2 Sam. 8:1Philistia, shout in triumph because of Me.”
9Who will bring me to the strong city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
10Is it not You, O God, #Ps. 108:11who cast us off?
And You, O God, who did #Josh. 7:12not go out with our armies?
11Give us help from trouble,
#Ps. 118:8; 146:3For the help of man is useless.
12Through God #Num. 24:18we will do valiantly,
For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.
