Psalm 60

To the chief Musician upon Shushan-eduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram-naharaim, and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned and smote of Edom, in the valley of Salt, twelve thousand.


1O Lord, thou hast rejected us,

and scatter’d us abroad;

Thou justly hast displeased been;

return to us, O God.

2The earth to tremble thou hast made;

therein didst breaches make:

Do thou thereof the breaches heal,

because the land doth shake.

3Unto thy people thou hard things

hast shew’d, and on them sent;

And thou hast caused us to drink

wine of astonishment.

4And yet a banner thou hast giv’n

to them who thee do fear;

That it by them, because of truth,

displayed may appear.

5That thy beloved people may

deliver’d be from thrall,

Save with the pow’r of thy right hand,

and hear me when I call.

6God in his holiness hath spoke;

herein I will take pleasure:

Shechem I will divide, and forth

will Succoth’s valley measure.

7Gilead I claim as mine by right;

Manasseh mine shall be;

Ephraim is of mine head the strength;

Judah gives laws for me;

8Moab’s my washing-pot; my shoe

I’ll over Edom throw;

And over Palestina’s land

I will in triumph go.

9O who is he will bring me to

the city fortify’d?

O who is he that to the land

of Edom will me guide?

10O God, which hadest us cast off,

this thing wilt thou not do?

Ev’n thou, O God, which didest not

forth with our armies go?

11Help us from trouble; for the help

is vain which man supplies.

12Through God we’ll do great acts; he shall

tread down our enemies.
