National Lament.  Psalm 60(v59)

To the choirmaster: according to Shushan Eduth. 0A Miktam of David; for instruction; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return killed twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.

1O God, thou hast rejected us, broken our defenses;
thou hast been angry; oh, restore us.
2Thou hast made the land to quake, thou hast rent it open;
repair its breaches, for it totters.
3Thou hast made thy people suffer hard things;
thou hast given us wine to drink that made us reel.

4Thou hast set up a banner for those who fear thee,
to rally to it from the bow. Selah
5That thy beloved may be delivered,
give victory by thy right hand and answer us!

6God has spoken in his sanctuary:
"With exultation I will divide up Shechem
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
7Gilead is mine; Manas'seh is mine;
E'phraim is my helmet; Judah is my scepter.
8Moab is my washbasin;
upon Edom I cast my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph."

9Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
10Hast thou not rejected us, O God?
Thou dost not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11O grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the help of man!
12With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.
