English Standard Version
He Will Tread Down Our Foes
To the choirmaster: according to (A)Shushan Eduth. A (B)Miktam[a] of David; (C)for instruction; when he (D)strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return struck down twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.
60 O God, (E)you have rejected us, (F)broken our defenses;
you have been angry; (G)oh, restore us.
2 You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
(H)repair its breaches, for it totters.
3 (I)You have made your people see hard things;
(J)you have given us (K)wine to drink that made us stagger.
4 You have set up (L)a banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it (M)from the bow.[b] Selah
5 (N)That your (O)beloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6 God has spoken (P)in his holiness:[c]
“With exultation (Q)I will divide up (R)Shechem
and portion out the Vale of (S)Succoth.
7 (T)Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
(U)Ephraim is (V)my helmet;
Judah is my (W)scepter.
8 (X)Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I (Y)cast my shoe;
over (Z)Philistia I shout in triumph.”[d]
9 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
(AA)Who will lead me to Edom?
10 Have you not (AB)rejected us, O God?
You (AC)do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11 Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for (AD)vain is the salvation of man!
12 With God we shall (AE)do valiantly;
it is he who will (AF)tread down our foes.
