A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Shelley Price

Shelley Price

Hello, all! My name is Shelley Price, and I’ve been married to Jason for four years. Our daughter, Abbey, will be a big sister by the time you read this. We go to the Plano campus, and you might find me serving in the red area of Starting Blocks. Some things I love are: coffee before anyone else is up, playing games with friends and family, popcorn, worship songs in the car, and playing volleyball. Oh, and my favorite candies are mellow cream pumpkins and sweeTARTS!

KEEP YOUR HAND OUT OF THE JAR

Psalm 60

He Will Tread Down Our Foes

To the choirmaster: according to Shushan Eduth. A Miktam [1] of David; for instruction; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and when Joab on his return struck down twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt.

60:1 O God, you have rejected us, broken our defenses;
you have been angry; oh, restore us.
You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
repair its breaches, for it totters.
You have made your people see hard things;
you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger.

You have set up a banner for those who fear you,
that they may flee to it from the bow. [2] Selah
That your beloved ones may be delivered,
give salvation by your right hand and answer us!

God has spoken in his holiness: [3]
“With exultation I will divide up Shechem
and portion out the Vale 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.” [4]

Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
10 Have you not rejected us, O God?
You do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11 Oh, grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the salvation of man!
12 With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes. (ESV)
