Psalm 60 - He Will Tread Down Our Foes

He Will Tread Down Our Foes

To the choirmaster: according to Shushan Eduth. A Miktam[10] of David; for instruction; when he 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.


1 O God, you have rejected us, broken our defenses;

you have been angry; oh, restore us.

2 You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;

repair its breaches, for it totters.

3 You have made your people see hard things;

you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger.


4 You have set up a banner for those who fear you,

that they may flee to it from the bow. Selah

5 That your beloved ones may be delivered,

give salvation by your right hand and answer us!


6 God has spoken in his holiness:

“With exultation I will divide up Shechem

and portion out the Vale of Succoth.

7 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;

Ephraim is my helmet;

Judah is my scepter.

8 Moab is my washbasin;

upon Edom I cast my shoe;

over Philistia I shout in triumph.”


9 Who will bring me to the fortified city?

Who will lead me to Edom?

10 Have you not rejected us, O God?

You do not go forth, O God, with our armies.

11 Oh, grant us help against the foe,

for vain is the salvation of man!

12 With God we shall do valiantly;

it is he who will tread down our foes.
