Song of Victory Over Edom

Psalm 60

For the music director, on the “Lily of the Covenant,” a Michtam of David, for teaching, when he fought with Aram-Naharaim and with Aram-Zobah, and Joab returned and struck down twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.
O God, You have spurned us.
You have broken out against us.
You have been angry. Turn back to us!
You made earth shake; You split it open.
Heal its fractures—for it shudders.
You made Your people see hardship.
You made us drink wine of staggering.
To those who fear You,
You gave a banner, to be unfurled before the archers. Selah
Save with Your right hand and answer us,
so that Your beloved may be delivered.

God has spoken in His holiness:
“I will exult!
I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine,
Ephraim is a helmet for my head,
Judah is my scepter.
10 Moab is my washbasin,
On Edom I toss my sandal,
Philistia, cry aloud because of me!”

11 Who will bring me into the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
12 Should it not be You, O God—
who spurned us and no longer goes out with our armies?
13 Give us aid against the adversary,
for the help of man is worthless.
14 With God we will do mighty things,
and He will trample our foes.
