59:6 They turn back at evening, They make a noise like a dog, And go round about the city.
59:7 Lo, they belch out with their mouths, Swords [are] in their lips, for `Who heareth?’
59:8 And Thou, O Jehovah dost laugh at them, Thou dost mock at all the nations.
59:9 O my Strength, unto Thee I take heed, For God [is] my tower — the God of my kindness.
59:10 God doth go before me, He causeth me to look on mine enemies.
59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget, Shake them by Thy strength, And bring them down, O Lord our shield.
59:12 The sin of their mouth [is] a word of their lips, And they are captured in their pride, And from the curse and lying they recount.
59:13 Consume in fury, consume and they are not, And they know that God is ruling in Jacob, To the ends of the earth. Selah.
59:14 And they turn back at evening, They make a noise like a dog, And they go round about the city.
59:15 They — they wander for food, If they are not satisfied — then they murmur.
59:16 And I — I sing [of] Thy strength, And I sing at morn [of] Thy kindness, For thou hast been a tower to me, And a refuge for me in a day of adversity.
59:17 O my Strength, unto Thee I sing praise, For God [is] my tower, the God of my kindness!
60:1 To the Overseer. — `Concerning the Lily of Testimony,’ a secret treasure of David, to teach, in his striving with Aram-Naharaim, and with Aram-Zobah, and Joab turneth back and smiteth Edom in the valley of Salt — twelve thousand. O God, Thou hadst cast us off, Thou hadst broken us — hadst been angry! — Thou dost turn back to us.
60:2 Thou hast caused the land to tremble, Thou hast broken it, Heal its breaches, for it hath moved.
60:3 Thou hast shewn Thy people a hard thing, Thou hast caused us to drink wine of trembling.
60:4 Thou hast given to those fearing thee an ensign. To be lifted up as an ensign Because of truth. Selah.
60:5 That Thy beloved ones may be drawn out, Save [with] Thy right hand, and answer us.
60:6 God hath spoken in His holiness: I exult — I apportion Shechem, And the valley of Succoth I measure,
60:7 Mine [is] Gilead, and mine [is] Manasseh, And Ephraim [is] the strength of my head, Judah [is] my lawgiver,
60:8 Moab [is] my pot for washing, over Edom I cast my shoe, Shout, concerning me, O Philistia.
60:9 Who doth bring me [to] a city of bulwarks? Who hath led me unto Edom?
60:10 Is it not Thou, O God? hast Thou cast us off? And dost Thou not go forth, O God, with our hosts!
60:11 Give to us help from adversity, And vain [is] the deliverance of man.
60:12 In God we do mightily, And He treadeth down our adversaries!
61:1 To the Overseer, on stringed instruments. — By David. Hear, O God, my loud cry, attend to my prayer.
61:2 From the end of the land unto Thee I call, In the feebleness of my heart, Into a rock higher than I Thou dost lead me.
