Psalm 60

For the music leader. According to Lily. A testimony. A miktam of David. For instruction, when he went to war with Aram-naharaim and Aram-sobah, and when Joab returned and defeated Edom, killing twelve thousand in the Salt Valley.

1 aGod, you have rejected us— shattered us. You've been so angry. Now restore us! 2 You've made the ground quake, splitting it open. Now repair its cracks because it's shaking apart! 3 You've made your people suffer hardship; you've given us wine and we stagger. 4 Give a flag to those who honor you, so they can rally around it, safe from attack.b Selah 5 Save us by your power and answer us so that the people you love might be rescued. 6 God has spoken in his sanctuary: "I will celebrate as I divide up Shechem and portion out the Succoth Valley. 7 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter. 8 But Moab is my washbowl; I'll throw my shoe at Edom. I shout in triumph over Philistia!c 9 I wish someone would bring me to a fortified city! I wish someone would lead meto Edom!" 10 But you have rejected us, God, haven't you? God, you no longer accompany our armies. 11 Give us help against the enemy; human help is worthless. 12 With God we will triumph; he's the one who will trample our adversaries.
