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!

New International Reader's Version

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.
