Psalms 60

Lament over Defeat in Battle, and Prayer for Help.

For the choir director; according to
Lit The lily of testimony
Shushan Eduth. A
Possibly, Epigrammatic Poem or Atonement Psalm
Mikhtam of David, to teach;
2 Sam 8:3, 13; 1 Chr 18:3, 12
when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.

1 O God, d  You have rejected us. You have
Or broken out upon us
f  broken us;
You have been g  angry; O, h  restore us.
2You have made the
Or earth
j  land quake, You have split it open;
k  Heal its breaches, for it totters.
3You have
Lit caused Your people to see
m  made Your people experience hardship;
You have given us
Lit wine of staggering
wine to o  drink that makes us stagger.
4You have given a p  banner to those who fear You,
That it may be displayed because of the truth.
Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude
5 r  That Your s  beloved may be delivered,
t  Save with Your right hand, and answer
Some authorities read me

6God has spoken in His
Or sanctuary
w  holiness:
I will exult, I will portion out x  Shechem and measure out the valley of y  Succoth.
7 z  Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;
aa  Ephraim also is the
Lit protection
helmet of My head;
Judah is My
Or lawgiver
ad  scepter.
8 ae  Moab is My washbowl;
Over af  Edom I shall throw My shoe;
Shout loud, O ag  Philistia, because of Me!”

9Who will bring me into the besieged city?
Or has led
will lead me to Edom?
10Have not You Yourself, O God ai  rejected us?
And aj  will You not go forth with our armies, O God?
11O give us help against the adversary,
For ak  deliverance
Lit of
by man is in vain.
Or In or With
Through God we shall an  do valiantly,
And it is He who will ao  tread down our adversaries.
