Chapter 60

1

 

 To the chief music-maker; put to Shushan-eduth. Michtam. Of David.
For teaching. When he was fighting against Aram-naharaim and Aramzobah, when Joab came back, and put twelve thousand of the Edomites to death, in the Valley of Salt.
 

 

 


2

 

 God, you have put us away from you, you have sent us in all directions, you have been angry; O be turned to us again. 

 

 


3

 

 By the power of your hand the earth is shaking and broken; make it strong again, for it is moved. 

 

 


4

 

 You have made the people see hard times; you have given us the wine of shaking for our drink. 

 

 


5

 

 Give a safe place to those who have fear of you, where they may go in flight from before the bow. (Selah.) 

 

 


6

 

 So that your loved ones may be made safe, let your right hand be my salvation, and give me an answer. 

 

 


7

 

 God has said in his holy place, I will be glad: I will make a division of Shechem, and the valley of Succoth will be measured out. 

 

 


8

 

 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver; 

 

 


9

 

 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I put out my shoe; over Philistia will a glad cry be sounded. 

 

 


10

 

 Who will take me into the strong town? who will be my guide into Edom? 

 

 


11

 

 Have not you put us away, O God? and you have not gone out with our armies. 

 

 


12

 

 Give us help in our trouble; for there is no help in man. 

 

 


13

 

 Through God we will do great things, for through him our haters will be crushed under our feet.
