Psalms Chapters 60-62
Psalms Chapter 60
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.
Psalms Chapter 61
1: Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2: From 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.
3: For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4: I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5: For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6: Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.
7: He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
8: So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
Psalms Chapter 62
1: Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2: He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
3: How 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.
4: They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
5: My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6: He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7: In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8: Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9: Surely 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.
10: Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11: God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
12: Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
