Psalm 60 Grant Us Help Against the Foe

Psalm 60

Grant Us Help Against the Foe

1O God, Thou hast rejected us, broken our defenses;

   Thou hast been angry; oh, restore us.

2 Thou hast made the land to quake, Thou hast rent it open;

   repair its breaches, for it totters.

3 Thou hast made Thy people suffer hard things;

   Thou hast given us wine to drink that made us reel.

4 Thou hast set up a banner for those who fear Thee,

   to rally to it from the bow.

5 That Thy beloved may be delivered,

   give victory by Thy right hand and answer us!

6 God has spoken in His sanctuary:

   “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 Hast Thou not rejected us, O God?

   Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.

Psalm 60 Grant Us Help Against the Foe

11 O grant us help against the foe,

   for vain is the help of man!

12 With God we shall do valiantly;

   it is He who will tread down our foes.
