Salme 60

Løfte i en opløsningstid

11-2 Til korlederen: En sang af David i anledning af, at han havde besejret de aramæiske hære fra Naharajim og Zoba, og af, at Joab havde slået 12.000 edomitter i Saltdalen. Sangen er gavnlig til belæring og synges til melodien „Pagtens lilje.”

Hvorfor har du forkastet os, Gud?
Du har straffet os, fordi du var vred på os.
    Men se i nåde til os og hjælp os.
Det var, som blev vi ramt af et jordskælv,
    det føltes, som vores verden brød sammen.
Du har været hård mod dit folk,
    vi ravede omkring, som var vi fulde.
Men du kalder på de gudfrygtige,
    så de kan komme til dig og blive reddet.

Hør min bøn og gør brug af din magt,
    så dit elskede folk kan blive reddet.

Gud talte jo fra sin helligdom:
„Med glæde vil jeg udstykke Sikem,
    jeg vil udmåle Sukkots dal.
Gilead tilhører mig,
    Manasse er min ejendom.
Kongerne kommer fra Juda,
    og dygtige krigere fra Efraim.
10 Moabitterne skal tjene mig,
    og edomitterne være mine slaver.
        Jeg vinder sejr over filistrene.”

11 Hvem tager med os til den befæstede by?
    Hvem vil gå med os mod Edom?
12 Herre, har du forkastet os?
    Hvorfor drager du ikke med os i krig?
13 Hjælp os dog mod vore fjender,
    for menneskers hjælp er intet værd.
14 Med Guds hjælp vinder vi sejr,
    for du kan trampe vore fjender ned.

Psalm 60

Psalm 60

For the director of music. For teaching. A miktam of David when he fought against Aram Naharaim and Aram Zobah. That was when Joab returned and struck down 12,000 people from Edom in the Valley of Salt. To the tune of “The Lily of the Covenant.”

God, you have turned away from us. You have attacked us.
    You have been angry. Now turn back to us!
You have shaken the land and torn it open.
    Fix its cracks, because it is falling apart.
You have shown your people hard times.
    You have made us drink the wine of your anger.
    Now we can’t even walk straight.

But you lead into battle those who have respect for you.
    You give them a flag to wave against the enemy’s weapons.

Save us and help us by your power.
    Do this so that those you love may be saved.
God has spoken from his temple.
    He has said, “I will win the battle.
Then I will divide up the land around Shechem.
    I will divide up the Valley of Sukkoth.
Gilead belongs to me.
    So does the land of Manasseh.
Ephraim is the strongest tribe.
    It is like a helmet for my head.
Judah is the royal tribe.
    It is like a ruler’s scepter.
Moab serves me like one who washes my feet.
    I toss my sandal on Edom to show that I own it.
    I shout to Philistia that I have won the battle.”

Who will bring me to the city that has high walls around it?
    Who will lead me to the land of Edom?
10 God, isn’t it you, even though you have now turned away from us?
    Isn’t it you, even though you don’t lead our armies into battle anymore?
11 Help us against our enemies.
    The help people give doesn’t amount to anything.
12 With your help we will win the battle.
    You will walk all over our enemies.
