Psalms 60 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

For the Chief Musician; set to Shushan Eduth. Michtam of David, to teach; and when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the Valley of Salt twelve thousand.

60:1O God thou hast cast us off, thou hast broken us down;

Thou hast been angry; oh restore us again.

60:2Thou hast made the land to tremble; thou hast rent it:

Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

60:3Thou hast showed thy people hard things:

Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering.

60:4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee,

That it may be displayed because of the truth.


60:5That thy beloved may be delivered,

Save with thy right hand, and answer us.

60:6God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult;

I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

60:7Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;

Ephraim also is the defence of my head;

Judah is my sceptre.

60:8Moab is my washpot;

Upon Edom will I cast my shoe:

Philistia, shout thou because of me.

60:9Who will bring me into the strong city?

Who hath led me unto Edom?

60:10Hast not thou, O God, cast us off?

And thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts.

60:11Give us help against the adversary;

For vain is the help of man.

60:12Through God we shall do valiantly;

For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
