Psalm 60 ©

1 David complaining to God of former judgments, 4 now upon better hope prayeth for deliverance: 6 comforting himself in God's promises, he craveth that help whereon he trusteth.


To the chief Musician aupon Shushan-eduth, 1Michtam of David, bto teach; when he cstrove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.

a Ps. 16; 45; 80, title.

O GOD, dthou hast cast us off, thou hast 2scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O eturn thyself to us again.


Thou fhast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.


Thou ghast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.


Thou hhast given ia banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.


That jthy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.


God khath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I lwill divide mShechem, and *mete out the valley of nSuccoth.


oGilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the pstrength of mine head; Judah is my qlawgiver;


Moab is my rwashpot; over sEdom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, 3triumph thou because of me.


Who will bring me into the 4strong city? who will lead me into Edom?


Wilt not thou, O God, which thadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?


Give uus help from trouble: for vain is the 5help of man.


Through vGod we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
