Psalm 60
Christian Standard BibleInternational Standard Version
1God, you have rejected us; you have broken us down; you have been angry. Restore us!1God, you have cast us off; you have breached our defenses and you have become enraged. Return to us!
2You have shaken the land and split it open. Heal its fissures, for it shudders.2You made the earth quake; you broke it open. Repair its fractures, because it has shifted.
3You have made your people suffer hardship; you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger.3You made your people go through hard times; you had us drink wine that makes us stagger.
4You have given a signal flag to those who fear you, so that they can flee before the archers. Selah4But you have given a banner to those who fear you, so they may display it in honor of truth. Interlude
5Save with your right hand, and answer me, so that those you love may be rescued.5So your loved ones may be delivered, save us by your power and answer us quickly!
6God has spoken in his sanctuary: "I will celebrate! I will divide up Shechem. I will apportion the Valley of Succoth.6Then God spoke in his holiness, "I will rejoice— I will divide Shechem; I will portion out the Succoth Valley.
7Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, and Ephraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter.7Gilead belongs to me, and Manasseh is mine. Ephraim is my helmet, and Judah my scepter.
8Moab is my washbasin. I throw my sandal on Edom; I shout in triumph over Philistia."8Moab is my wash basin; over Edom I will throw my shoes; over Philistia I will celebrate my triumph."
9Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?9Who will lead me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
10God, haven't you rejected us? God, you do not march out with our armies.10Aren't you the one, God, who has cast us off? Didn't you refuse, God, to accompany our armies?
11Give us aid against the foe, for human help is worthless.11Help us in our distress, for human help is worthless.
12With God we will perform valiantly; he will trample our foes.12Through God we will fight valiantly; and it is he who will crush our enemies.
