A Song. A Psalm of David.
5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let thy glory be over all the earth!
6That thy beloved may be delivered,
give help by thy right hand, and answer me!
7God has promised in his sanctuary:
"With exultation I will divide up Shechem,
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
8Gilead is mine; Manas'seh is mine;
E'phraim is my helmet; Judah my scepter.
9Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I cast my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph."
10Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11Hast thou not rejected us, O God?
Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
12O grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the help of man!
13With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.
