Psalm 60

Prayer for National Victory after Defeat

To the leader: according to The Lily of the Covenant. A Miktam of David; for instruction; when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return killed twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
1 O God, you have rejected us, broken our defences;
   you have been angry; now restore us!
2 You have caused the land to quake; you have torn it open;
   repair the cracks in it, for it is tottering.
3 You have made your people suffer hard things;
   you have given us wine to drink that made us reel.


4 You have set up a banner for those who fear you,
   to rally to it out of bowshot.*
          Selah
5 Give victory with your right hand, and answer us,*
   so that those whom you love may be rescued.


6 God has promised in his sanctuary:*
   ‘With exultation I will divide up Shechem,
   and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;
   Ephraim is my helmet;
   Judah is my sceptre.
8 Moab is my wash-basin;
   on Edom I hurl my shoe;
   over Philistia I shout in triumph.’


9 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
   Who will lead me to Edom?
10 Have you not rejected us, O God?
   You do not go out, O God, with our armies.
11 O grant us help against the foe,
   for human help is worthless.
12 With God we shall do valiantly;
   it is he who will tread down our foes.
