Psalm 60


thou hast scattered us O God, thou hast cast us off,
thou hast scattered us,
thou hast been displeased;
O turn thyself to us again.
Thou hast made the earth to tremble;
thou hast broken it:
heal the breaches thereof;
for it shaketh.

Thou hast shewed 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.


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 mete out the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;
Ephraim also is the strength of mine head;
Judah is my lawgiver;
Moab is my washpot;
over Edom will I cast out my shoe:
Philistia, triumph thou because of me.

Who will bring me into the strong city?
who will lead me into Edom?
Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off?
and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?

Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
Through God we shall do valiantly:
for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
