Psalm 60

To the chief Musician upon Shushan-eduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram-naharaim, and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned and smote of Edom, in the valley of Salt, twelve thousand.


^1O Lord, thou hast rejected us,

and scatter'd us abroad;

Thou justly hast displeased been;

return to us, O God.

^2The earth to tremble thou hast made;

therein didst breaches make:

Do thou thereof the breaches heal,

because the land doth shake.

^3Unto thy people thou hard things

hast shew'd, and on them sent;

And thou hast caused us to drink

wine of astonishment.

^4And yet a banner thou hast giv'n

to them who thee do fear;

That it by them, because of truth,

displayed may appear.

^5That thy beloved people may

deliver'd be from thrall,

Save with the pow'r of thy right hand,

and hear me when I call.

^6God in his holiness hath spoke;

herein I will take pleasure:

Shechem I will divide, and forth

will Succoth's valley measure.

^7Gilead I claim as mine by right;

Manasseh mine shall be;

Ephraim is of mine head the strength;

Judah gives laws for me;

^8Moab's my washing-pot; my shoe

I'll over Edom throw;

And over Palestina's land

I will in triumph go.

^9O who is he will bring me to

the city fortify'd?

O who is he that to the land

of Edom will me guide?

^10O God, which hadest us cast off,

this thing wilt thou not do?

Ev'n thou, O God, which didest not

forth with our armies go?

^11Help us from trouble; for the help

is vain which man supplies.

^12Through God we'll do great acts; he shall

tread down our enemies.
