With God We Will Gain the Victory
(2 Samuel 8:1-14; 1 Chronicles 18:1-13)
1For the Chief Musician; set to Shushan Eduth: Michtam of David, to teach: when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the Valley of Salt twelve thousand. O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast broken us down; thou hast been angry; O restore us again.
2Thou hast made the land to tremble; thou hast rent it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
3Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering.
4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah
5That thy beloved may be delivered, save with thy right hand, and answer us.
6God hath spoken in his holiness; I will exult: I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
7Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of mine head; Judah is my sceptre.
8Moab is my washpot; upon Edom will I cast my shoe: Philistia, shout thou because of me.
9Who will bring me into the strong city? who hath led me unto Edom?
10Hast not thou, O God, cast us off? and thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts.
11Give us help against the adversary: for vain is the help of man.
12Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our adversaries.
