Psalms Chapter 60 - New International Version

1. Psalm 60 For the director of music. To [the tune of] "The Lily of the Covenant." A [3] of David. For teaching. When he fought Aram Naharaim [2] and Aram Zobah, [1] and when Joab returned and struck down twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.

1. You have rejected us, O God, and burst forth upon us; you have been angry--now restore us!

2. You have shaken the land and torn it open; mend its fractures, for it is quaking.

3. You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.

4. But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow.

5. Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.

6. God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Succoth.

7. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.

8. Moab is my washbasin, upon Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph."

9. Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?

10. Is it not you, O God, you who have rejected us and no longer go out with our armies?

11. Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.

12. With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
