Psalm 60 Living Bible (TLB)

 Written by David at the time he was at war with Syria, with the outcome still uncertain; this was when Joab, captain of his forces, slaughtered twelve thousand men of Edom in Salt Valley.

O God, you have rejected us and broken our defenses; you have become angry and deserted us. Lord, restore us again to your favor. You have caused this nation to tremble in fear; you have torn it apart. Lord, heal it now, for it is shaken to its depths. You have been very hard on us and made us reel beneath your blows.

4-5 But you have given us a banner to rally to; all who love truth will rally to it; then you can deliver your beloved people. Use your strong right arm to rescue us. 6-7 God has promised to help us. He has vowed it by his holiness! No wonder I exult! “Shechem, Succoth, Gilead, Manasseh—still are mine!” he says. “Judah shall continue to produce kings, and Ephraim great warriors. Moab shall become my lowly servant, and Edom my slave. And I will shout in triumph over the Philistines.”

9-10 Who will bring me in triumph into Edom’s strong cities? God will! He who cast us off! He who abandoned us to our foes! 11 Yes, Lord, help us against our enemies, for man’s help is useless.

12 With God’s help we shall do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes.
