Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Notes

A prayer for victory over Edom, the enemy of God's people.

Scripture References:
st. 1 =vv. 1-5
st. 2 = vv. 6-8
st. 3 =vv. 9-12

This lament, in contrast to the immediately preceding ones, takes on a national scope, focusing on Israel's defeat by a foreign nation. Though Israel has suffered God's rejection in battle, the psalmist appeals for help (st. 1) from God, who has declared that Israel is his kingdom (“Judah [is] my scepter”), and who will triumph over Edom and other enemies (st. 2). Relying on that declaration, the psalmist encourages us to pray with confidence that God will give victory to his people, his church (st. 3). Marie J. Post (PHH 5) versified this psalm in 1985 for the Psalter Hymnal.

Liturgical Use:
When the church has suffered defeat or is otherwise in need of encouragement in its spiritual warfare.
