Psalms 60


את  Psa 60:1.9

God, you have rejected us. You have broken us down.

David, complaining to God of former judgment

1 את O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. 2 [60:4] Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. 3 [60:5] Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

now upon better hope, prays for deliverance

4 [60:6] Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. 5 [60:7] That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

Comforting himself in God's promises, he craves that help whereon he trusts

6 [60:8] God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. 7 [60:9] Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; 8 [60:10] Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me. 9 [60:11] Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? 10 [60:12] Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies? 11 [60:13] Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. 12 [60:14] Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
