Psalm 60

O God, you have cast us off and broken us :
 you were enraged against us O restore us again!
You have caused the land to quake, you have rent it open :
 heal the rifts, for the earth quivers and breaks.
You have steeped your people in a bitter draught :
 you have given them a wine to make them stagger.
You have caused those that fear you to take flight :
 so that they run from the bow.
O save us by your right hand, and answer us :
 that those whom you love may be delivered.
God has said in his holy place :
 ‘I will exult and divide Shechem,
   I will parcel out the valley of Succoth.
‘Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine :
 Ephraim is my helmet, and Judah my rod of command.
‘Moab is my wash-bowl, over Edom will I cast my shoe :
 against Philistia will I shout in triumph.’
Who will lead me into the fortified city :
 who will bring me into Edom?
Have you not cast us off, O God? :
 you go not out with our armies.
Give us your help against the enemy :
 for vain is the help of man.
By the power of our God we shall do valiantly :
 for it is he that will tread down our enemies.
