Psalms - Chapter 60

1 To the Chief Musician. Set to "Lily of the Testimony." A Michtam of David. For teaching. When he fought against Mesopotamia and Syria of Zobah, and Joab returned and killed twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt. O God, You have cast us off; You have broken us down; You have been displeased; Oh, restore us again!

2 You have made the earth tremble; You have broken it; Heal its breaches, for it is shaking.

Prayer In Bitter Fate

3 You have shown Your people hard things; You have made us drink the wine of confusion.

4 You have given a banner to those who fear You, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah

5 That Your beloved may be delivered, Save [with] Your right hand, and hear me.

6 God has spoken in His holiness: "I will rejoice; I will divide Shechem And measure out the Valley of Succoth.

7 Gilead [is] Mine, and Manasseh [is] Mine; Ephraim also [is] the helmet for My head; Judah [is] My lawgiver.

Remembering God's Promises

8 Moab [is] My washpot; Over Edom I will cast My shoe; Philistia, shout in triumph because of Me."

9 Who will bring me [to] the strong city? Who will lead me to Edom?

10 [Is it] not You, O God, [who] cast us off? And You, O God, [who] did not go out with our armies?

Asking For Help

11 Give us help from trouble, For the help of man [is] useless.

12 Through God we will do valiantly, For [it is] He [who] shall tread down our enemies.
