60 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[To the choirmaster: according to Shushan Eduth.] לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל־שׁוּשַׁן עֵדוּת מִכְתָּם לְדָוִד לְלַמֵּד׃ National Lament. Psalm 60(v59)
A Miktam of David; for instruction; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return killed twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt. בְּהַצֹּותֹו אֶת אֲרַם נַהֲרַיִם וְאֶת־אֲרַם צֹובָה וַיָּשָׁב יֹואָב וַיַּךְ אֶת־אֱדֹום בְּגֵיא־מֶלַח שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר אָלֶף׃  
O God, thou hast rejected us, broken our defenses;
thou hast been angry; oh, restore us.
אֱלֹהִים זְנַחְתָּנוּ פְרַצְתָּנוּ אָנַפְתָּ תְּשֹׁובֵב לָנוּ׃  
Thou hast made the land to quake, thou hast rent it open;
repair its breaches, for it totters.
הִרְעַשְׁתָּה אֶרֶץ פְּצַמְתָּהּ רְפָה שְׁבָרֶיהָ כִי־מָטָה׃  
Thou hast made thy people suffer hard things;
thou hast given us wine to drink that made us reel.
הִרְאִיתָה עַמְּךָ קָשָׁה הִשְׁקִיתָנוּ יַיִן תַּרְעֵלָה׃  
Thou hast set up a banner for those who fear thee,
to rally to it from the bow. [Selah]
נָתַתָּה לִּירֵאֶיךָ נֵּס לְהִתְנֹוסֵס מִפְּנֵי קֹשֶׁט סֶלָה׃  
That thy beloved may be delivered,
give victory by thy right hand and answer us!
לְמַעַן יֵחָלְצוּן יְדִידֶיךָ הֹושִׁיעָה יְמִינְךָ [כ= וַעֲנֵנוּ] [ק= וַעֲנֵנִי]׃  
God has spoken in his sanctuary:
"With exultation I will divide up Shechem
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
אֱלֹהִים דִּבֶּר בְּקָדְשֹׁו אֶעְלֹזָה אֲחַלְּקָה שְׁכֶם וְעֵמֶק סֻכֹּות אֲמַדֵּד׃  
Gilead is mine; Manas'seh is mine;
E'phraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter.
לִי גִלְעָד וְלִי מְנַשֶּׁה וְאֶפְרַיִם מָעֹוז רֹאשִׁי יְהוּדָה מְחֹקְקִי׃  
Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I cast my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph."
מֹואָב סִיר רַחְצִי עַל־אֱדֹום אַשְׁלִיךְ נַעֲלִי עָלַי פְּלֶשֶׁת הִתְרֹעָעִי׃  
Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
מִי יֹבִלֵנִי עִיר מָצֹור מִי נָחַנִי עַד־אֱדֹום׃ 
Hast thou not rejected us, O God?
Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
הֲלֹא־אַתָּה אֱלֹהִים זְנַחְתָּנוּ וְלֹא־תֵצֵא אֱלֹהִים בְּצִבְאֹותֵינוּ׃  
O grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the help of man!
הָבָה־לָּנוּ עֶזְרָת מִצָּר וְשָׁוְא תְּשׁוּעַת אָדָם׃  
With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.
בֵּאלֹהִים נַעֲשֶׂה־חָיִל וְהוּא יָבוּס צָרֵינוּ׃  
      << | Psalms: 60 | >>
