He Will Tread Down Our Foes

To the choirmaster: according to Shushan Eduth. A Miktam of David; for instruction; when he 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.

1O God, you have rejected us, broken our defenses;

you have been angry; oh, restore us.

2You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;

repair its breaches, for it totters.

3You have made your people see hard things;

you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger.

4You have set up a banner for those who fear you,

that they may flee to it from the bow.Selah

5That your beloved ones may be delivered,

give salvation by your right hand and answer us!

6God has spoken in his holiness:

“With exultation I will divide up Shechem

and portion out the Vale of Succoth.

7Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;

Ephraim is my helmet;

Judah is my scepter.

8Moab is my washbasin;

upon Edom I cast my shoe;

over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

9Who will bring me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

10Have you not rejected us, O God?

You do not go forth, O God, with our armies.

11Oh, grant us help against the foe,

for vain is the salvation of man!

12With God we shall do valiantly;

it is he who will tread down our foes.
