You have made Your people experience hardship; You have given us wine to drink that makes us stagger.
King James Bible
Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

World English Bible
You have shown your people hard things. You have made us drink the wine that makes us stagger.
Young's Literal Translation
Thou hast shewn Thy people a hard thing, Thou hast caused us to drink wine of trembling.
Psalm 60:3 Parallel

Compare Psalm 11:6, note; Isaiah 51:17, note.
