That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and answer me!
God has spoken in His [a]holiness:
“I will exult, I will portion out Shechem
And measure out the valley of Succoth.
“Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the [b]helmet of My head;
Judah is My [c]scepter.
“Moab is My washbowl;
Over Edom I shall throw My shoe;
Over Philistia I will shout aloud.”
Who will bring me into the besieged city?
Who [d]will lead me to Edom?
Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us?
And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?
Oh give us help against the adversary,
For deliverance [e]by man is in vain.
[f]Through God we will do valiantly,
And it is He who shall tread down our adversaries.
