(59-1) <Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, for the inscription of a title, to David himself, for doctrine, (59-2) When he set fire to Mesopotamia of Syria and Sobal: and Joab returned and slew of Edom, in the vale of the saltpits, twelve thousand men.> (59-3) O God, thou hast cast us off, and hast destroyed us; thou hast been angry, and hast had mercy on us.
(59-4) Thou hast moved the earth, and hast troubled it: heal thou the breaches thereof, for it has been moved.
(59-5) Thou hast shewn thy people hard things; thou hast made us drink the wine of sorrow.
(59-6) Thou hast given a warning to them that fear thee: that they may flee from before the bow: That thy beloved may be delivered.
(59-7) Save me with thy right hand, and hear me.
(59-8) God hath spoken in his holy place: I will rejoice, and I will divide Sichem; and will mete out the vale of tabernacles.
(59-9) Galaad is mine, and Manasses is mine: and Ephraim is the strength of my head. Juda is my king:
(59-10) Moab is the pot of my hope. Into Edom will I stretch out my shoe: to me the foreigners are made subject.
(59-11) Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
(59-12) Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go out with our armies?
(59-13) Give us help from trouble: for vain is the salvation of man.
(59-14) Through God we shall do mightily: and he shall bring to nothing them that afflict us.
