King James Version (ENGKJV)
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.

601O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.60.1 Michtam: or, A golden Psalm60.1 scattered: Heb. broken

2Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

3Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

5That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

6God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

7Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

8Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.60.8 triumph…: or, triumph thou over me: (by an irony)

9Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?60.9 strong…: Heb. city of strength?

10Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?

11Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.60.11 help of man: Heb. salvation, etc

12Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

61

To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.

611Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

2From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

4I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.61.4 trust: or, make my refuge

5For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

6Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations.61.6 Thou…: Heb. Thou shalt add days to the days of the king61.6 as…: Heb. as generation and generation

7He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.

8So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

62

To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.

621Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.62.1 Truly: or, Only62.1 waiteth: Heb. is silent

2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.62.2 defence: Heb. high place

3How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

4They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.62.4 inwardly: Heb. in their inward parts

5My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

6He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

7In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

8Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

9Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.62.9 altogether: or, alike

10Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

11God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.62.11 power: or, strength

12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
