Psalms 60



Verses 1-12

Psalm 60

The Lord with His People

1. Confessions and prayer (Psalms 60:1-5)

2. The inheritance anticipated (Psalms 60:6-8)

3. Faith’s certainty (Psalms 60:9-12)

This Psalm, “Shushan-Eduth” (the lily of testimony), also a Michtam of David, has for its beginning a confession of the godly in Israel. The Lord they acknowledge had scattered them and is angry with them. They pray for restoration. “That thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand and hear me.” Then He hears and answers in His holiness and His people rejoice as once more they possess their earthly inheritance. The casting of the shoe upon Edom means the subjugation of Edom, taking possession and making Edom a servant.
