Psalm 60
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Victory with God

1(59:1) For 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.

2(59:2) Thou hast shaken the earth, and troubled it; heal its breaches, for it has been shaken.

3(59:3) Thou hast shewn thy people hard things: thou has made us drink the wine of astonishment.

4(59:4) Thou hast given a token to them that fear thee, that they might flee from the bow. Pause.

5(59:5) That thy beloved ones may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

6(59:6) God has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, and divide Sicima, and measure out the valley of tents.

7(59:7) Galaad is mine, and Manasse is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head;

8(59:8) Judas 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.

9(59:9) Who will lead me into the fortified city? who will guide me as far a Idumea?

10(59:10) Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our forces?

11(59:11) Give us help from trouble: for vain is the deliverance of man.

12(59:12) In God will we do valiantly; and he shall bring to nought them that harass us.
