Psalm 60 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Lament over Defeat in Battle, and Prayer for Help.

For the choir director; according to [a]Shushan Eduth. A [b]Mikhtam of David, to teach; [c]when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.

60 O God, You have rejected us. You have [d]broken us;
You have been angry; O, restore us.
You have made the [e]land quake, You have split it open;
Heal its breaches, for it totters.
You have [f]made Your people experience hardship;
You have given us [g]wine to drink that makes us stagger.
You have given a banner to those who fear You,
That it may be displayed because of the truth. [h]Selah.
That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and answer [i]us!

God has spoken in His [j]holiness:
“I will exult, I will portion out Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the [k]helmet of My head;
Judah is My [l]scepter.
Moab is My washbowl;
Over Edom I shall throw My shoe;
Shout loud, O Philistia, because of Me!”

Who will bring me into the besieged city?
Who [m]will lead me to Edom?
10 Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us?
And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?
11 O give us help against the adversary,
For deliverance [n]by man is in vain.
12 [o]Through God we shall do valiantly,
And it is He who will tread down our adversaries.
