Psalm 60

Victory with God
(2 Samuel 8:1–14; 1 Chronicles 18:1–13; Psalm 108:1–13)

For the choirmaster. To the tune of “The Lily of the Covenant.” A Miktama of David for instruction. When he fought Aram-naharaimb and Aram-zobah,c and Joab returned and struck down 12,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt.

1You have rejected us, O God;

You have broken us;

You have been angry;

restore us!

2You have shaken the land

and torn it open.

Heal its fractures,

for it is quaking.

3You have shown Your people hardship;

we are staggered from the wine You made us drink.

4You have raised a banner for those who fear You,

that they may flee the bow.d


5Respond and save us with Your right hand,

that Your beloved may be delivered.

6God has spoken from His sanctuary:e

“I will triumph!

I will parcel out Shechem

and apportion the Valley of Succoth.

7Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;

Ephraim is My helmet, Judah is My scepter.

8Moab is My washbasin;

upon Edom I toss My sandal;

over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

9Who will bring me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

10Have You not rejected us, O God?

Will You no longer march out, O God, with our armies?

11Give us aid against the enemy,

for the help of man is worthless.

12With God we will perform with valor,

and He will trample our enemies.
