The Book of Psalms

Psalm 59

Deus, repulisti nos.

After many afflictions, the church of Christ shall prevail.


1
Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, for the inscription of a title, to David himself, for doctrine,

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.

3
O God, thou hast cast us off, and hast destroyed us; thou hast been angry, and hast had mercy on us.

4
Thou hast moved the earth, and hast troubled it: heal thou the breaches thereof, for it has been moved.

5
Thou hast shewn thy people hard things; thou hast made us drink the wine of sorrow.

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.

7
Save me with thy right hand, and hear me.

8
God hath spoken in his holy place: I will rejoice, and I will divide Sichem; and will mete out the vale of tabernacles.

9
Galaad is mine, and Manasses is mine: and Ephraim is the strength of my head. Juda is my king:

10
Moab is the pot of my hope. Into Edom will I stretch out my shoe: to me the foreigners are made subject.

11
Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

12
Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go out with our armies?

13
Give us help from trouble: for vain is the salvation of man.

14
Through God we shall do mightily: and he shall bring to nothing them that afflict us.
