Psalms 60

For the Leader; upon 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. O God, Thou hast cast us off, Thou hast broken us down; Thou hast been angry; O restore us. Thou hast made the land to shake, Thou hast cleft it; heal the breaches thereof; for it tottereth. Thou hast made Thy people to see hard things; Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering. Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand, and answer me.

God spoke in His holiness, that I would exult; that I would divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre. 10 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom do I cast my shoe; Philistia, cry aloud because of me! 11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me unto Edom? 12 Hast not Thou, O God, cast us off? And Thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts. 13 Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man. 14 Through God we shall do valiantly; for He it is that will tread down our adversaries.
