|[To the choirmaster: according to Shushan Eduth.]||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.|
|O God, thou hast rejected us, broken our defenses; |
thou hast been angry; oh, restore us.
|Thou hast made the land to quake, thou hast rent it open; |
repair its breaches, for it totters.
|Thou hast made thy people suffer hard things; |
thou hast given us wine to drink that made us reel.
|Thou hast set up a banner for those who fear thee, |
to rally to it from the bow. [Selah]
|That thy beloved may be delivered, |
give victory by thy right hand and answer us!
|God has spoken in his sanctuary: |
"With exultation I will divide up Shechem
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
|Gilead is mine; Manas'seh is mine; |
E'phraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter.
|Moab is my washbasin; |
upon Edom I cast my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph."
|Who will bring me to the fortified city? |
Who will lead me to Edom?
|Hast thou not rejected us, O God? |
Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
|O grant us help against the foe, |
for vain is the help of man!
|With God we shall do valiantly;|
it is he who will tread down our foes.
