Psalms 60

He Will Tread Down Our Foes

To the choirmaster: according to aShushan Eduth. A bMiktam
Probably musical or liturgical terms
of David; dfor instruction; when he estrove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return struck down twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.

1O God, fyou have rejected us, gbroken our defenses;
you have been angry; hoh, restore us.
2You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
irepair its breaches, for it totters.
3 jYou have made your people see hard things;
kyou have given us lwine to drink that made us stagger.
4You have set up ma banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it nfrom the bow.
Or  that it may be displayed because of truth
5 pThat your qbeloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6God has spoken rin his holiness:
Or sanctuary

“With exultation tI will divide up uShechem
and portion out the Vale of vSuccoth.
7 wGilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
xEphraim is ymy helmet;
Judah is my zscepter.
8 aaMoab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I abcast my shoe;
over acPhilistia I shout in triumph.”
Revocalization (compare Psalm 108:10); Masoretic Text  over me, O Philistia, shout in triumph

9Who will bring me to the fortified city?
aeWho will lead me to Edom?
10Have you not afrejected us, O God?
You agdo not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for ahvain is the salvation of man!
12With God we shall aido valiantly;
it is he who will ajtread down our foes.
