Psalm 60

Prayer in Difficult Times

For the choir director: according to “The Lily of Testimony.” l A Davidic * Miktam for teaching. When he fought with Aram-naharaim and Aram-zobah, and Joab returned and struck Edom in the Valley of Salt, killing 12,000. m

God, You have rejected us;

You have broken out n against us;

You have been angry. Restore us! o p

You have shaken the land and split it open.

Heal its fissures, for it shudders. q

You have made Your people suffer hardship;

You have given us wine to drink

that made us stagger. r

You have given a signal flag to those who * fear You,

so that they can flee before the archers. s t * Selah

Save with Your right hand, and answer me,

so that those You love may be rescued. u

God has spoken in His sanctuary: v

“I will triumph! I will divide up Shechem. w

I will apportion the Valley of Succoth. x

Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine,

and Ephraim is My helmet; y

Judah is My scepter. z

Moab is My washbasin. a

I throw My sandal on Edom; b

I shout in triumph over Philistia.” c

Who will bring me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me to Edom? d

10 God, haven’t You rejected us?

God, You do not march out with our armies. e

11 Give us aid against the foe,

for human help is worthless. f

12 With God we will perform valiantly; g

He will trample our foes. h
