The plea for victory (Ps 60:5-60:5)

“Give victory

With your right hand!

Answer us!

Thus those whom you love

May be rescued.”

This was a simple prayer to God. They wanted to gain a victory with God’s right hand. They wanted an answer to their prayer. God loved them so he should rescue them. There always was the presumption of God’s love and trust in that love, even if it was a little demanding.
