Psalm 60, Blessing Psalter

60 So that God reveals the truth when a whole group of people is unjustly accused.

.3 O God, you have rejected us and broken us.
You have been angry; come back to us.

.4 You have made the earth quake, torn it open.
Repair what is shattered for it sways.
.5 You have inflicted hardships on your people
and made us drink a wine that dazed us.

.6 You have given those who fear you a signal
to flee from the enemy’s bow.
.7 O come, and deliver your friends,
help with your right hand and reply.

.8 From his holy place God has made this promise;
“I will triumph and divide the land of Shechem,
I will measure out the valley of Succoth.

.9 Gilead is mine and Manasseh,
Ephraim I take for my helmet,
Judah for my commander’s staff.

.10 Moab I will use for my washbowl;
on Edom I will plant my shoe.
Over the Philistines I will shout in triumph.”

.11 But who will lead me to conquer the fortress?
Who will bring me face to face with Edom?
.12 Will you utterly reject us, O God,
and no longer march with our armies?

.13 Give us help against the foe:
for the help of man is vain.
.14 With God we shall do bravely
and he will trample down our foes.
