[A Song. A Psalm of David.]
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let thy glory be over all the earth!
That thy beloved may be delivered,
give help by thy right hand, and answer me!
God has promised in his sanctuary:
"With exultation I will divide up Shechem,
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
Gilead is mine; Manas'seh is mine;
E'phraim is my helmet; Judah my scepter.
Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I cast my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph."
Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
Hast thou not rejected us, O God?
Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
O grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the help of man!
With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.
