47. Psalm 60- Prayer for national deliverance

O God, before when You Rejected us broken were our defenses, You Were Angry, Then Restored us. You Have Made the land Quake, You Have Rent it Open, now Repair its breaches, for it quivers. You Have Made Your people Suffer hard things, as if You Have Given us strong wine to drink that made us reel. You Have Set Up a banner for those who fear You, to rally to it from the bow. That Your Beloved may be delivered, Give Victory By Your Right Hand and Answer us! YHWH Has Spoken In His Sanctuary: “With Exultation I Will Divide Up Shechem and Portion Out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine, Ephraim is My Helmet, Judah is My Scepter. Moab is My Washbasin, Upon Edom I Cast My Shoe, Over Philistia I Shout In Triumph.” Who else will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? If You rejected us, O God? If You did not go forth, O God, with our armies? Yea Grant us Help Against the foe, for vain is the help of man! Only With YHWH shall we do valiantly, For It Is He Alone Who Treads Down our foes!
