Psalm 60

He Will Tread Down Our Foes
To the choirmaster: according to #Ps. 80, title Shushan Eduth. A #See Ps. 16, title Miktam#60:1 Probably musical or liturgical terms of David; #Deut. 31:19 for instruction; when he #[2 Sam. 8:3, 13, 14; 10:16; 1 Chr. 18:3, 12]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.
1O God, #ver. 10; See Ps. 44:9 you have rejected us, #[2 Sam. 5:20] broken our defenses;
you have been angry; #See Ps. 80:3oh, restore us.
2You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
# [2 Chr. 7:14] repair its breaches, for it totters.
3 # Ps. 71:20 You have made your people see hard things;
# Job 21:20 you have given us #Isa. 51:17, 22wine to drink that made us stagger.
4You have set up #Isa. 5:26; 11:12; 13:2; [Ps. 20:5] a banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it #Prov. 22:21from the bow.#60:4 Or that it may be displayed because of truth Selah
5 # For ver. 5-12, see Ps. 108:6-13 That your #Deut. 33:12; Jer. 11:15beloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!
6God has spoken #Ps. 89:35; Amos 4:2 in his holiness:#60:6 Or sanctuary
“With exultation #[Josh. 1:6] I will divide up #Gen. 12:6; 33:18; Josh. 17:7 Shechem
and portion out the Vale of #Gen. 33:17; Josh. 13:27Succoth.
7 # Josh. 13:31 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
# Deut. 33:17 Ephraim is #Ps. 140:7 my helmet;
Judah is my #Gen. 49:10scepter.
8 # [2 Sam. 8:2] Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I #[Matt. 3:11] cast my shoe;
over #[2 Sam. 8:1]Philistia I shout in triumph.”#60:8 Revocalization (compare Psalm 108:10); Masoretic Text over me, O Philistia, shout in triumph
9Who will bring me to the fortified city?
# [2 Sam. 8:14] Who will lead me to Edom?
10Have you not #ver. 1 rejected us, O God?
You #See Ps. 44:9do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for #[Ps. 146:3]vain is the salvation of man!
12With God we shall #Ps. 108:13; 118:15, 16; Num. 24:18 do valiantly;
it is he who will #Ps. 44:5; Isa. 63:3tread down our foes.
