He Will Tread Down Our Foes

you have been angry; loh, restore us.
10 Have you not grejected us, O God?
You hdo not go forth, O God, with our armies.
Arise, O God, Defend Your Cause
1 O God, why do you scast us off forever?
11 Have you not rejected us, O God?
You do not go out, O God, with our armies.
38 But now you have ucast off and rejected;
you are full of wrath against your vanointed.
40 You have abreached all his walls;
you have laid his strongholds in ruins.
41 aAll who pass by plunder him;
he has become bthe scorn of his neighbors.
42 You have exalted the right hand of his foes;
you have made all his enemies rejoice.
43 You have also turned back the edge of his sword,
and you have not made him stand in battle.
44 You have made his splendor to cease
and cast his throne to the ground.
45 You have cut short cthe days of his youth;
you have dcovered him with shame. Selah
