Psalms 68:1-35

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme or song of David. God will arise, and his enemies shalbe scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee before him. 2 As the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou driue them away: and as waxe melteth before the fire, so shall the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3 But the righteous shalbe glad, and reioyce before God: yea, they shall leape for ioye. 4 Sing vnto God, and sing prayses vnto his name: exalt him that rideth vpon the heauens, in his Name Iah, and reioyce before him. 5 He is a Father of the fatherlesse, and a Iudge of the widowes, euen God in his holy habitation. 6 God maketh the solitarie to dwell in families, and deliuereth them that were prisoners in stocks: but the rebellious shall dwell in a dry land. 7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people: when thou wentest through the wildernesse, (Selah) 8 The earth shooke, and the heauens dropped at the presence of this God: euen Sinai was moued at the presence of God, euen the God of Israel. 9 Thou, O God, sendest a gracious raine vpon thine inheritance, and thou didest refresh it when it was wearie. 10 Thy Congregation dwelled therein: for thou, O God, hast of thy goodnesse prepared it for the poore. 11 The Lord gaue matter to the women to tell of the great armie. 12 Kings of the armies did flee: they did flee, and she that remained in the house, deuided the spoyle. 13 Though ye haue lien among pots, yet shall ye be as the winges of a doue that is couered with siluer, and whose fethers are like yelowe golde. 14 When the Almightie scattered Kings in it, it was white as the snowe in Zalmon. 15 The mountaine of God is like the mountaine of Bashan: it is an high Mountaine, as mount Bashan. 16 Why leape ye, ye high mountaines? as for this Mountaine, God deliteth to dwell in it: yea, the Lord will dwell in it for euer. 17 The charets of God are twentie thousande thousand Angels, and the Lord is among them, as in the Sanctuarie of Sinai. 18 Thou art gone vp on high: thou hast led captiuitie captiue, and receiued giftes for men: yea, euen the rebellious hast thou led, that the Lord God might dwell there. 19 Praysed be the Lord, euen the God of our saluation, which ladeth vs dayly with benefites. Selah. 20 This is our God, euen the God that saueth vs: and to the Lord God belong the issues of death. 21 Surely God will wound the head of his enemies, and the hearie pate of him that walketh in his sinnes. 22 The Lord hath sayde, I will bring my people againe from Bashan: I will bring them againe from the depths of the Sea: 23 That thy foote may bee dipped in blood, and the tongue of thy dogges in the blood of the enemies, euen in it. 24 They haue seene, O God, thy goings, the goings of my God, and my King, which art in the Sanctuarie. 25 The singers went before, the players of instruments after: in the middes were the maides playing with timbrels. 26 Praise yee God in the assemblies, and the Lord, ye that are of the fountaine of Israel. 27 There was litle Beniamin with their ruler, and the princes of Iudah with their assemblie, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali. 28 Thy God hath appointed thy strength: stablish, O God, that, which thou hast wrought in vs, 29 Out of thy Temple vpon Ierusalem: and Kings shall bring presents vnto thee. 30 Destroy the company of the spearemen, and multitude of the mightie bulles with the calues of the people, that tread vnder feete pieces of siluer: scatter the people that delite in warre. 31 Then shall the princes come out of Egypt: Ethiopia shall hast to stretche her hands vnto God. 32 Sing vnto God, O yee kingdomes of the earth: sing praise vnto the Lord, (Selah) 33 To him that rideth vpon ye most high heauens, which were from the beginning: beholde, he will send out by his voice a mightie sound. 34 Ascribe the power to God: for his maiestie is vpon Israel, and his strength is in the cloudes. 35 O God, thou art terrible out of thine holie places: the God of Israel is hee that giueth strength and power vnto the people: praised be God.

And Vzzah and Ahio the sonnes of Abinadab did driue the newe carte. 4 And when they brought the Arke of God out of the house of Abinadab, that was at Gibeah, Ahio went before the Arke, 5 And Dauid and al the house of Israel played before the Lord on all instruments made of firre, and on harpes, and on Psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals. 6 And when they came to Nachons threshing floore, Vzzah put his hande to the Arke of God, and helde it: for the oxen did shake it. 7 And the Lord was verie wroth with Vzzah, and God smote him in the same place for his fault, and there he dyed by the Arke of God. 8 And Dauid was displeased, because the Lord had smitten Vzzah: and he called the name of the place Perez Vzzah vntill this day. 9 Therefore Dauid that day feared the Lord, and sayd, How shall the Arke of the Lord come to mee? 10 So Dauid would not bring the Arke of the Lord vnto him into the citie of Dauid, but Dauid caried it into ye house of Obed-edom a Gittite. 11 And the Arke of the Lord continued in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite, three moneths, and the Lord blessed Obed-edom, and all his houshold. 12 And one told King Dauid, saying, The Lord hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that hee hath, because of the Arke of God: therefore Dauid went and brought the Arke of God from the house of Obed-edom, into the citie of Dauid with gladnesse. 13 And when they that bare the Arke of the Lord had gone sixe paces, he offred an oxe, and a fatte beast. 14 And Dauid danced before the Lord with al his might, and was girded with a linnen Ephod. 15 So Dauid and all the house of Israel, brought the Arke of the Lord with shouting, and sound of trumpet. 16 And as the Arke of the Lord came into the citie of Dauid, Michal Sauls daughter looked through a windowe, and sawe King Dauid leape, and dance before the Lord, and shee despised him in her heart. 17 And when they had brought in the Arke of the Lord, they set it in his place, in the mids of the tabernacle that Dauid had pitched for it: then Dauid offred burnt offrings, and peace offrings before the Lord. 18 And assoone as Dauid had made an ende of offring burnt offrings and peace offrings, hee blessed the people in the Name of the Lord of hostes, 19 And gaue among all the people, euen among the whole multitude of Israel, aswel to the women as men, to euerie one a cake of bread, and a piece of flesh, and a bottell of wine: so all the people departed euerie one to his house. 20 The Dauid returned to blesse his house, and Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meete Dauid, and sayde, O howe glorious was the King of Israel this day, which was vncouered to day in the eyes of the maidens of his seruantes, as a foole vncouereth himselfe. 21 Then Dauid sayd vnto Michal, It was before the Lord, which chose me rather then thy father, and all his house, and commanded me to bee ruler ouer the people of the Lord, euen ouer Israel: and therefore will I play before the Lord, 22 And will yet be more vile then thus, and will be low in mine owne sight, and of the verie same maidseruants, which thou hast spoken of, shall I be had in honour. 23 Therfore Michal the daughter of Saul had no childe vnto the day of her death.
