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.
