Salmos 60

1 To the chief musician upon Shushan’eduth, a Michtham of David, to teach, When he fought with Aram–naharayim, and with Aram–zobah, and Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the Salt Valley twelve thousand men. O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast made a breach in us, thou hast been displeased: restore now unto us thy favor.

2 Thou hast caused the earth to quake; thou hast split it: heal her breaches; for she is moved.

3 Thou hast caused thy people to see hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of confusion.

4 Thou hast given to those that fear thee a banner, to elevate themselves, because of the truth. Selah.

5 In order that thy beloved may be delivered: help with thy right hand, and answer me.

6 God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult, I will divide Shechem, and the valley of Succoth will I measure out.

7 Mine is Gil’ad, and mine is Menasseh; Ephraim also is the strong–hold of my head; of Judah are my chiefs;

8 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom will I cast my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou but over me.

9 Who will bring me into the fortified city? who will lead me as far as Edom?

10 Behold, it is thou, O God, who hast cast us off; and thou, O God, goest not forth with our armies.

11 Give us help against the assailant; for vain is the help of man.

12 Through God shall we do valiantly: and he it is that will tread down our assailants.
