1To him that excelleth upon Shushan Eduth, or Michtam. A Psalme of David to teach. When he fought against Aram Naharaim, and against Aram Zobah, when Joab returned and slew twelve thousand Edomites in the salt valley. O God, thou hast cast vs out, thou hast scattered vs, thou hast bene angry, turne againe vnto vs. 2Thou hast made the land to tremble, and hast made it to gape: heale the breaches thereof, for it is shaken. 3Thou hast shewed thy people heauy things: thou hast made vs to drinke the wine of giddines. 4But now thou hast giuen a banner to them that feare thee, that it may be displayed because of thy trueth. Selah. 5That thy beloued may be deliuered, helpe with thy right hand and heare me. 6God hath spoken in his holines: therefore I will reioyce: I shall deuide Shechem, and measure the valley of Succoth. 7Gilead shalbe mine, and Manasseh shalbe mine: Ephraim also shalbe the strength of mine head: Iudah is my lawgiuer. 8Moab shalbe my wash pot: ouer Edom will I cast out my shoe: Palestina shew thy selfe ioyfull for me. 9Who will leade me into the strong citie? who will bring me vnto Edom? 10Wilt not thou, O God, which hadest cast vs off, and didest not go forth, O God, with our armies? 11Giue vs helpe against trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man. 12Through God we shall doe valiantly: for he shall tread downe our enemies.
