Amplified Bible

Psalm 60

Lament over Defeat in Battle, and Prayer for Help.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “The Lily of the Testimony.” A Mikhtam of David [intended to record memorable thoughts and] to teach; when he struggled with the Arameans of Mesopotamia and the Arameans of Zobah, and when Joab returned and struck twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.

1O God, You have rejected us and cast us off. You have broken [down our defenses and scattered] us;
You have been angry; O restore us and turn again to us.

You have made the land quake, You have split it open;
Heal its rifts, for it shakes and totters.

You have made Your people experience hardship;
You have given us wine to drink that makes us stagger and fall.

You have set up a banner for those who fear You [with awe-inspired reverence and submissive wonder—a banner to shield them from attack],
A banner that may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

That Your beloved ones may be rescued,
Save with Your right hand and answer us.


God has spoken in His holiness [in His promises]:
“I will rejoice, I will divide [the land of] Shechem and measure out the Valley of Succoth [west to east].

“Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim is My helmet;
Judah is My scepter.

“Moab is My [a]washbowl;
Over Edom I shall throw My shoe [in triumph];
Over Philistia I raise the shout [of victory].”


Who will bring me into the besieged city [of Petra]?
Who will lead me to Edom?
10 
Have You not rejected us, O God?
And will You not go out with our armies?
11 
Give us help against the enemy,
For the help of man is worthless (ineffectual, without purpose).
12 
Through God we will have victory,
For He will trample down our enemies.

诗篇 60

祈求上帝的帮助

大卫作的诗,交给乐长,叫人学习,调用“作证的百合花”。当时大卫跟美索不达米亚西北部和叙利亚中部的亚兰人打仗,约押在盐谷杀了一万两千以东人。

1上帝啊,
你遗弃了我们,
使我们一败涂地;
你曾向我们发怒,
求你现在复兴我们。
你震动大地,将它撕裂。
求你修补裂口,
因为它要塌陷了。
你叫我们——你的子民吃尽苦头,
喝了令我们东倒西歪的苦酒。
但你赐给敬畏你的人旗帜,
可以挡住箭羽[a](细拉)
求你应允我们的祷告,
伸出右手帮助我们,
使你所爱的人获救。

上帝在祂的圣所说:
“我要欢然划分示剑,
丈量疏割谷。
基列是我的,
玛拿西也是我的,
以法莲是我的头盔,
犹大是我的权杖。
摩押是我的洗脚盆,
我要把鞋扔给以东,
我要在非利士高唱凯歌。”
谁能带我进入坚固的城池?
谁能领我到以东?
10 上帝啊,你抛弃了我们吗?
不再和我们的军队一同出战了吗?
11 求你帮助我们攻打仇敌,
因为人的帮助徒然无益。
12 我们依靠上帝才能取胜,
祂必把我们的敌人踩在脚下。
