Psalms 60

To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand. O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. {Michtam: or, A golden Psalm} {scattered: Heb. broken} Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal its breaches; for it shaketh. Thou hast shown thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. 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 hear me.

God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of my head; Judah is my lawgiver; Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me. {triumph...: or, triumph thou over me: (by an irony)} Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? {strong...: Heb. city of strength?} 10  Wilt thou not, O God, who hadst cast us off? and thou , O God, who didst not go out with our armies? 11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. {help of man: Heb. salvation, etc} 12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he will tread down our enemies.
