PSALM 60 Lament over Defeat in Battle, and Prayer for Help. For the choir director; according to Shushan Eduth. A Mikhtam of David, to teach; when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt. 60 1O God, You have rejected us. You have [E]broken us; You have been angry; O, restore us. 2You have made the [F]land quake, You have split it open; Heal its breaches, for it totters. 3You have [G]made Your people experience hardship; You have given us [H]wine to drink that makes us stagger. 4You have given a banner to those who fear You, That it may be displayed because of the truth. [I]Selah. 5That Your beloved may be delivered, Save with Your right hand, and answer [J]us! 6God has spoken in His [K]holiness: “I will exult, I will portion out Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth. 7“Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the [L]helmet of My head; Judah is My [M]scepter. 8“Moab is My washbowl; Over Edom I shall throw My shoe; Shout loud, O Philistia, because of Me!” 9Who will bring me into the besieged city? Who [N]will lead me to Edom? 10Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us? And will You not go forth with our armies, O God? 11O give us help against the adversary, For deliverance [O]by man is in vain. 12[P]Through God we shall do valiantly, And it is He who will tread down our adversaries.
