3O God, you rejected us, broke our defenses; you were angry but now revive us. 4You rocked the earth, split it open; z Ps 75, 4; Is 24, 19 . repair the cracks for it totters. 5You made your people go through hardship, made us stagger from the wine you gave us. a Ps 75, 9; Is 51, 17. 21–22; Jer 25, 15 . 6Raise up a flag for those who revere you, a refuge for them out of bowshot.   Selah 7Help with your right hand and answer us* that your loved ones may escape.

8In the sanctuary God promised:“ I will exult, will apportion Shechem; the valley of Succoth I will measure out.* 9Gilead is mine, mine is Manasseh; Ephraim is the helmet for my head, Judah, my own scepter. 10Moab is my washbowl;* upon Edom I cast my sandal. b Ru 4, 7–8 . * I will triumph over Philistia.”

11Who will bring me to the fortified city?* Who will lead me into Edom? 12Was it not you who rejected us, God? Do you no longer march with our armies? c Ps 44, 10 . 13Give us aid against the foe; worthless is human help. 14We will triumph with the help of God, who will trample down our foes.
