Chapter 60

 

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.

1

O Elohim thou hast cast us off, thou hast broken us down; Thou hast been angry; oh restore us again.

2

Thou hast made the land to tremble; thou hast rent it: Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

3

Thou hast showed thy people hard things: Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering.

4

Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah

5

That thy beloved may be delivered, Save with thy right hand, and answer us.

6

Elohim hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult; I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

7

Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre.

8

Moab is my washpot; Upon Edom will I cast my shoe: Philistia, shout thou because of me.

9

Who will bring me into the strong city? Who hath led me unto Edom?

10

Hast not thou, O Elohim, cast us off? And thou goest not forth, O Elohim, with our hosts.

11

Give us help against the adversary; For vain is the help of man.

12

Through Elohim we shall do valiantly; For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.
