Psalms 60

He Will Tread Down Our Foes

To the choirmaster: according to a  Shushan Eduth. A b  Miktam
Probably musical or liturgical terms
of David; d  for instruction; when he e  strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return struck down twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.

1 O God, f  you have rejected us, g  broken our defenses;
you have been angry; h  oh, restore us.
2You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
i  repair its breaches, for it totters.
3 j  You have made your people see hard things;
k  you have given us l  wine to drink that made us stagger.
4 You have set up m  a banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it n  from the bow.
Or  that it may be displayed because of truth
5 p  That your q  beloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6 God has spoken r  in his holiness:
Or sanctuary

“With exultation t  I will divide up u  Shechem
and portion out the Vale of v  Succoth.
7 w  Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
x  Ephraim is y  my helmet;
Judah is my z  scepter.
8 aa  Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I ab  cast my shoe;
over ac  Philistia I shout in triumph.”
Revocalization (compare Psalm 108:10); Masoretic Text  over me, O Philistia, shout in triumph

9 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
ae  Who will lead me to Edom?
10Have you not af  rejected us, O God?
You ag  do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for ah  vain is the salvation of man!
12With God we shall ai  do valiantly;
it is he who will aj  tread down our foes.
