Psalms 60:1-12

For the Chief Musician; set to Shushan Eduth. Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the Valley of Salt twelve thousand. 60  O God thou hast cast us off, thou hast broken us down; Thou hast been angry; oh restore us again. 2  Thou hast made the land to tremble; thou hast rent it: Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. 3  Thou hast showed thy people hard things: Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering. 4  Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah 5  That thy beloved may be delivered, Save with thy right hand, and answer us. 6  God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult; I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. 7  Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre. 8  Moab is my washpot; Upon Edom will I cast my shoe: Philistia, shout thou because of me. 9  Who will bring me into the strong city? Who hath led me unto Edom? 10  Hast not thou, O God, cast us off? And thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts. 11  Give us help against the adversary; For vain is the help of man. 12  Through God we shall do valiantly; For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
