60:1 For the Leader; upon Shushan Eduth; Michtam of David, to teach;

60:2 when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the Valley of Salt twelve thousand.

60:3 O God, Thou hast cast us off, Thou hast broken us down; Thou hast been angry; O restore us.

60:4 Thou hast made the land to shake, Thou hast cleft it; heal the breaches thereof; for it tottereth.

60:5 Thou hast made Thy people to see hard things; Thou hast made us to drink the wine of staggering.

60:6 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah

60:7 That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand, and answer me.

60:8 God spoke in His holiness, that I would exult; that I would divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

60:9 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre.

60:10 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom do I cast my shoe; Philistia, cry aloud because of me!

60:11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me unto Edom?

60:12 Hast not Thou, O God, cast us off? And Thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts.

60:13 Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man.

60:14 Through God we shall do valiantly; for He it is that will tread down our adversaries.
