Psalm 60
Brenton Septuagint Translation

With God We Will Gain the Victory

1For the end, for them that shall yet be changed; for an inscription by David for instruction, when he had burned Mesopotamia of Syria, and Syria Sobal, and Joab had returned and smitten in the valley of salt twelve thousand. O God, thou hast rejected and destroyed us; thou hast been angry, yet hast pitied us.

2Thou hast shaken the earth, and troubled it; heal its breaches, for it has been shaken.

3Thou hast shewn thy people hard things: thou has made us drink the wine of astonishment.

4Thou hast given a token to them that fear thee, that they might flee from the bow. Pause.

5That thy beloved ones may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

6God has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, and divide Sicima, and measure out the valley of tents.

7Galaad is mine, and Manasse is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head;

8Judas is my king; Moab is the caldron of my hope; over Idumea will I stretch out my shoe; the Philistines have been subjected to me.

9Who will lead me into the fortified city? who will guide me as far a Idumea?

10Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our forces?

11Give us help from trouble: for vain is the deliverance of man.

12In God will we do valiantly; and he shall bring to nought them that harass us.
