Psalms 60

For the end, for them that shall yet be changed; for an inscription by David for instruction, when he had burned Mesopotamia of Syria, and Syria of Zobah; and Joab had returned and struck twelve thousand in the Valley of Salt.

O God, You have rejected and destroyed us; You have been angry, yet You have pitied us. You have shaken the earth, and troubled it; heal its breaches, for it has been shaken. You have shown Your people hard things; You have made us drink the wine of astonishment. You have given a token to them that fear You, that they might flee from the bow. Pause. That Your beloved ones may be delivered; save with Your right hand, and hear me. God has spoken in His holiness; I will rejoice, and divide Shechem, and measure out the Valley of Tents. Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; and Ephraim is the strength of My head; Judah is My king; Moab is the caldron of My hope; over Edom will I stretch out My shoe; the Philistines have been subjected to Me. Who will lead me into the fortified city? Who will guide me as far as Edom? 10 Will not You, O God, who has cast us off? And will not You, O God, go forth with our forces? 11 Give us help from trouble; for vain is the deliverance of man. 12 In God will we do valiantly; and He shall bring to nought them that harass us.
