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?
Have You not rejected us, O God?
And will You not go out with our armies?
Give us help against the enemy,
For the help of man is worthless (ineffectual, without purpose).
Through God we will have victory,
For He will trample down our enemies.

Salmos 60

Al director musical. Sígase la tonada de «El lirio del pacto». Mictam didáctico de David, cuando luchó contra los arameos del noroeste de Mesopotamia y de Siria central, y cuando Joab volvió y abatió a doce mil edomitas en el valle de la Sal.

1Oh Dios, tú nos has rechazado
    y has abierto brecha en nuestras filas;
te has enojado con nosotros:
    ¡restáuranos ahora!
Has sacudido la tierra,
    la has resquebrajado;
repara sus grietas,
    porque se desmorona.
Has sometido a tu pueblo a duras pruebas;
    nos diste a beber un vino embriagador.

Da[a] a tus fieles la señal de retirada,
    para que puedan escapar de los arqueros. Selah
Líbranos con tu diestra, respóndenos
    para que tu pueblo amado quede a salvo.

Dios ha dicho en su santuario:
    «Triunfante repartiré a Siquén,
    y dividiré el valle de Sucot.
Mío es Galaad, mío es Manasés;
    Efraín es mi yelmo y Judá mi cetro.
En Moab me lavo las manos,
    sobre Edom arrojo mi sandalia;
    sobre Filistea lanzo gritos de triunfo».

¿Quién me llevará a la ciudad fortificada?
    ¿Quién me mostrará el camino a Edom?
10 ¿No eres tú, oh Dios, quien nos ha rechazado?
    ¡Ya no sales, oh Dios, con nuestros ejércitos!
11 Bríndanos tu ayuda contra el enemigo,
    pues de nada sirve la ayuda humana.
12 Con Dios obtendremos la victoria;
    ¡él pisoteará a nuestros enemigos!
