Psalm 60
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. [SET] ON “LILY OF TESTIMONY.” A MIKTAM OF DAVID, TO TEACH, IN HIS STRIVING WITH ARAM-NAHARAIM AND WITH ARAM-ZOBAH, WHEN JOAB TURNS BACK AND STRIKES EDOM IN THE VALLEY OF SALT—TWELVE THOUSAND. O God, You had cast us off, || You had broken us—had been angry! You turn back to us.

2You have caused the land to tremble, || You have broken it, || Heal its breaches, for it has moved.

3You have shown Your people a hard thing, || You have caused us to drink wine of trembling.

4You have given an ensign to those fearing You, || To be lifted up as an ensign || Because of truth. Selah.

5That Your beloved ones may be drawn out, || Save [with] Your right hand, and answer us.

6God has spoken in His holiness: I exult—I apportion Shechem, || And I measure the Valley of Succoth,

7Gilead [is] Mine, and Manasseh [is] Mine, || And Ephraim [is] the strength of My head, || Judah [is] My lawgiver,

8Moab [is] My pot for washing, || Over Edom I cast My shoe, || Shout, concerning Me, O Philistia.

9Who brings me [to] a city of bulwarks? Who has led me to Edom?

10Is it not You, O God? Have You cast us off? And do You not go forth, O God, with our hosts?

11Give to us help from adversity, || And the deliverance of man [is] vain.

We do mightily in God, || And He treads down our adversaries!
