Urgent Prayer for the Restored Favor of God

To the Chief Musician. Set to “Lily of the Testimony.” A Michtam of David. For teaching. When he fought against Mesopotamia and Syria of Zobah, and Joab returned and killed twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
  1O God, You have cast us off;
   You have broken us down;
   You have been displeased;
   Oh, restore us again!
   2You have made the earth tremble;
   You have broken it;
   Heal its breaches, for it is shaking.
   3You have shown Your people hard things;
   You have made us drink the wine of confusion.
  4You have given a banner to those who fear You,
   That it may be displayed because of the truth.
   5That Your beloved may be delivered,
   Save with Your right hand, and hear me.
  6God has spoken in His holiness:
   “I will rejoice;
   I will divide Shechem
   And measure out the Valley of Succoth.
   7Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;
   Ephraim also is the helmet for My head;
   Judah is My lawgiver.
   8Moab is My washpot;
   Over Edom I will cast My shoe;
   Philistia, shout in triumph because of Me.”
  9Who will bring me to the strong city?
   Who will lead me to Edom?
   10Is it not You, O God, who cast us off?
   And You, O God, who did not go out with our armies?
   11Give us help from trouble,
   For the help of man is useless.
   12Through God we will do valiantly,
   For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.
