Victory with God
(2 Samuel 8:1–14; 1 Chronicles 18:1–13; Psalm 108:1–13)

1To the chiefe musition vpon Susan Eduth, a golden psalme of Dauid, for to teache: (made) when he fought against Mesopotamia and Syria of Stobah, and when Ioab turned backe and slue twelue thousande Edomites in the salt valley.) O Lorde thou hast cast vs out, thou hast dispearsed vs, thou art displeased: O turne thee vnto vs agayne.

2Thou hast made the land to tremble, thou hast cleft it asunder: heale the breaches therof, for it is redy to fall downe.

3Thou hast made thy people see heauie thinges: thou hast geuen vs wyne to drinke, that maketh vs tremble.

4But to suche as feare thee: thou hast geuen a banner to be lyfted vp on high for the trueth sake. Selah.

5Therfore that thy beloued may be deliuered: helpe me with thy right hand, and heare me.

6The Lorde hath spoken in his holynes (whereof I wyll reioyce) this: I wyll deuide Sichem, and measure the valley of Sucoth.

7Gilead shalbe myne, and Manasses shalbe myne: Ephraim also shalbe the strength of my head, and Iuda my law geuer.

8Moab shalbe my washpot: ouer Edom I wyll cast my shoe, Philistea be thou glad of me.

9Who wyll leade me into the stong citie? who wyll bring me into Edom?

10Hast not thou remoued vs from thence O Lorde? and wylt not thou O Lorde go out with our hoastes?

11Geue vs ayde against trouble: for the sauing helpe of man is but vayne.

12Thorowe the Lorde we wyll do valiaunt actes: for he him selfe wyll treade downe our enemies.
