Psalms Chapter 60 |
1For the leader; on shushan eduth. A michtam of David (to be taught), 2when he fought with Aram-Naharaim and Aram-Zobah, and Joab returned and defeated Edom—[an army] of twelve thousand men—in the Valley of Salt.
3O God, You have rejected us,
You have made a breach in us;
You have been angry;
4You have made the land quake;
You have torn it open.
Mend its fissures,
for it is collapsing.
5You have made Your people suffer hardship;
You have given us wine that makes us reel.
6Give those who fear You because of Your truth
a banner for rallying. Selah.
7That those whom You love might be rescued,
deliver with Your right hand and answer me.
8God promised in His sanctuary
that I would exultingly divide up Shechem,
and measure the Valley of Sukkoth;
9Gilead and Manasseh would be mine,
Ephraim my chief stronghold,
Judah my scepter;
10Moab would be my washbasin;
on Edom I would cast my shoe;
acclaim me, O Philistia!
11Would that I were brought to the bastion!
Would that I were led to Edom!
12But You have rejected us, O God;
God, You do not march with our armies.
13Grant us Your aid against the foe,
for the help of man is worthless.
14With God we shall triumph;
He will trample our foes.
