Psalm 60

To the Chief Musician. Shushaneduth. Michtam of David, to teach; when he struggled with Syrian Naharaim and with Syrian Maachah, when Joab returned and struck twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt
1 O God, You have cast us off, You have broken us, You were angry; bring us back.
2 You have made the earth tremble; You split it open. Heal its breaks, for it is shaking.
3 You have shown Your people hard things; You have made us drink the wine of staggering.
4 You have given a banner to those who fear You, to flee to before truth. Selah.
5 That Your beloved may be rescued, deliver with Your right hand and respond to me.
6 God has spoken in His holiness: I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the refuge of My head; Judah is My lawgiver;
8 Moab is My washpot; over Edom will I cast off My shoe; Philistia, shout in triumph.
9 Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom?
10 Have not You, O God, cast us off? And will not You, O God, go out with our armies?
11 Give us help from distress; for the help of man is vain.
12 Through God we shall do mightily; for it is He who will trample our enemies.
