To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth,
Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove
with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah,
when Joab returned, and smote of Edom
in the valley of salt twelve thousand.
1 O God, thou hast rejected us,
and scatter’d us abroad:
thou hast displeased been with us,
return to us, O God.
2 The land to tremble thou hast caus’d,
thou it asunder brake:
do thou the breaches of it heal,
for it doth moving shake.
3 Thou hast unto thy people show’d
things that are hard, thou hast
also the cup of trembleing
given to them to taste.
4 But unto them that do thee fear,
a banner to display
thou given hast to be lift up
for thy truth’s sake. Selah.
5 That those who thy beloved are
delivered may be,
O do thou save with thy right hand,
and answer give to me.
6 God in his holiness hath spoke,
rejoice therein will I,
Shechem I will divide, and mete
of Succoth the valley.
7 To me doth Gilead appertain,
Manasseh mine besides:
Ephr’im the strength is of my head,
Judah my laws prescribes.
8 Moab’s my washpot, I will cast
over Edom my shoe,
O Palestine, because of me
be thou triumphant too.
9 O who is it that will me lead
to th’ city fortified?
and who is he that will become
into Edom my guide?
10 Is it not thou, O God, who hadst
cast us off heretofore?
and thou, O God, who with our hosts
would’st not go out before?
11 O give to us help from distress
for man’s help is but vain.
12 Through God we’ll do great acts, he shall
our foes tread with disdain.
To the chief Musician upon Neginah,
A Psalm of David.
1 Hearken, O God, unto my cry,
unto my pray’r attend.
2 When my heart is oppress’d, I’ll cry
to thee from the earth’s end:
do thou me lead unto the rock
that higher is than I.
3 For thou my hiding place, hast been
strong fort from th’ enemy.
4 Within thy tabernacle I
for ever will abide,
within the covert of thy wings
I’ll seek myself to hide. Selah.
5 For thou, O God, hast heard the vows
that I to thee have past:
their heritage that fear thy name
to me thou given hast.
6 Thou to the days of the king’s life
wilt make addition:
his years as generation,
7 Before the face of the strong God
he shall abide for aye:
do thou mercy and truth prepare
that him preserve they may.
8 So then I will unto thy name
sing praise perpetually,
that I the vows which I have made
may pay continually.
