Psalm 60


He Will Tread Down Our Foes



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO SHUSHAN EDUTH. A MIKTAM OF DAVID; FOR INSTRUCTION; WHEN HE 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, you have rejected us, broken our defenses; 

      you have been angry; oh, restore us. 

      2 You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open; 

      repair its breaches, for it totters. 

      3 You have made your people see hard things; 

      you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger. 


      4 You have set up a banner for those who fear you, 

      that they may flee to it from the bow. Selah 

      5 That your beloved ones may be delivered, 

      give salvation by your right hand and answer us! 


      6 God has spoken in his holiness: 

      “With exultation I will divide up Shechem 

      and portion out the Vale of Succoth. 

      7 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; 

      Ephraim is my helmet; 

      Judah is my scepter. 

      8 Moab is my washbasin; 

      upon Edom I cast 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 forth, O God, with our armies. 

      11 Oh, grant us help against the foe, 

      for vain is the salvation of man! 

      12 With God we shall do valiantly; 

      it is he who will tread down our foes.
