Psalm 60
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1God, you have cast us off; you have breached our defenses and you have become enraged. Return to us!1O God, you have rejected us, broken our defenses; you have been angry; oh, restore us.
2You made the earth quake; you broke it open. Repair its fractures, because it has shifted.2You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open; repair its breaches, for it totters.
3You made your people go through hard times; you had us drink wine that makes us stagger.3You have made your people see hard things; you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger.
4But you have given a banner to those who fear you, so they may display it in honor of truth. Interlude4You have set up a banner for those who fear you, that they may flee to it from the bow. Selah
5So your loved ones may be delivered, save us by your power and answer us quickly!5That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6Then God spoke in his holiness, "I will rejoice— I will divide Shechem; I will portion out the Succoth Valley.6God has spoken in his holiness: “With exultation I will divide up Shechem and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
7Gilead belongs to me, and Manasseh is mine. Ephraim is my helmet, and Judah my scepter.7Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter.
8Moab is my wash basin; over Edom I will throw my shoes; over Philistia I will celebrate my triumph."8Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph.”
9Who will lead me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?9Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?
10Aren't you the one, God, who has cast us off? Didn't you refuse, God, to accompany our armies?10Have you not rejected us, O God? You do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11Help us in our distress, for human help is worthless.11Oh, grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man!
12Through God we will fight valiantly; and it is he who will crush our enemies. 12With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
