Chapter 60


<To the chief music-maker; put to Shushan-eduth. Michtam. Of David.\


\60:1\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.>\


\60:1\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.


\60:2\By the power of your hand the earth is shaking and broken; make it strong again, for it is moved.


\60:3\You have made the people see hard times; you have given us the wine of shaking for our drink.


\60:4\Give a safe place to those who have fear of you, where they may go in flight from before the bow. (Selah.)


\60:5\So that your loved ones may be made safe, let your right hand be my salvation, and give me an answer.


\60:6\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.


\60:7\Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver;


\60:8\Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I put out my shoe; over Philistia will a glad cry be sounded.


\60:9\Who will take me into the strong town? who will be my guide into Edom?


\60:10\Have not you put us away, O God? and you have not gone out with our armies.


\60:11\Give us help in our trouble; for there is no help in man.


\60:12\Through God we will do great things, for through him our haters will be crushed under our feet.
