1: God, you have rejected us. You have broken us down. You have been angry. Restore us, again. 2: You have made the land tremble. You have torn it. Mend its fractures, for it quakes. 3: You have shown your people hard things. You have made us drink the wine that makes us stagger. 4: You have given a banner to those who fear you, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. 5: So that your beloved may be delivered, save with your right hand, and answer us. 6: God has spoken from his sanctuary: "I will triumph. I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth. 7: Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine. Ephraim also is the defense of my head. Judah is my scepter. 8: Moab is my wash basin. I will throw my shoe on Edom. I shout in triumph over Philistia." 9: Who will bring me into the strong city? Who has led me to Edom? 10: Haven't you, God, rejected us? You don't go out with our armies, God. 11: Give us help against the adversary, for the help of man is vain. 12: Through God we shall do valiantly, for it is he who will tread down our adversaries. Psalm 61 For the Chief Musician. For a stringed instrument. By David.
