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. 2 You have made the [e]land quake, You have split it open; Heal its breaches, for it totters. 3 You have [f]made Your people experience hardship; You have given us [g]wine to drink that makes us stagger. 4 You have given a banner to those who fear You, That it may be displayed because of the truth. [h]Selah. 5 That Your beloved may be delivered, Save with Your right hand, and answer [i]us!
6 God has spoken in His [j]holiness: “I will exult, I will portion out Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth. 7 “Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the [k]helmet of My head; Judah is My [l]scepter. 8 “Moab is My washbowl; Over Edom I shall throw My shoe; Shout loud, O Philistia, because of Me!”
9 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.
