To the Heavenly Worship Leader set to “Testimony of the Lily,” Mikhtam [meaning disputed] of David [Beloved], to teach; when he strove with Aram-Naharayim [Aram of the Two Rivers] and with Aram-Tzovah [Exalted Station; conflict], when Yo’av [Yah is Father] returned, and smote of Edom [Red] in the valley of salt twelve thousand.
1O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], youi have cast us off, youi have scattered us, youi have been displeased; O turn yourself to us again.
2youi have made the earth to tremble; youi have broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shakes.
3youi have showed youri people hard things: youi have made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
4youi have given a banner to them that fear youi, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
5That youri beloved may be delivered; save [with] youri right hand, and hear me.
6God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Sh’khem [Shoulder], and measure (deal out) out the valley of Sukkot [Booths].
7Gil’ad [Rocky Region] [is] mine, and M’nasheh [Causing to Forget] [is] mine; Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful] also [is] the strength of mine head; Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] [is] my lawgiver;
8Mo’av [Seed of my Father] [is] my washpot; over Edom [Red] will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph youi because of me.
9Who will bring me [into] the strong city? who will lead me into Edom [Red]?
10 [Will] not youi, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], [which] had cast us off? and [youi], O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], [which] did not go out with our armies?
11Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.
12Through God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that] shall tread down our enemies.
