The second book of Psalms, song 60, King James Version

Psalm 60

   To the chief Musician upon Shushan-eduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.
   1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
   2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
   3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
   4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
   5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
   6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
   7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
   8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
   9 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
   10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
   11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
   12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
