You have rejected us, God, and burst upon us;

you have been angry—now restore us!

You have shaken the land and torn it open;

mend its fractures, for it is quaking.

You have shown your people desperate times;

you have given us wine that makes us stagger.

But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner

to be unfurled against the bow.60:4 The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here.
