Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. 3 (68:2)As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 4 (68:3)But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yes, let them exceedingly rejoice. 5 (68:4)Sing to God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. 6 (68:5)A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. 7 (68:6)God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those who are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. 8 (68:7)O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah: 9 (68:8)The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel. 10 (68:9)Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, by which thou didst confirm thy inheritance, when it was weary. 11 (68:10)Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor. 12 (68:11)The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it. 13 (68:12)Kings of armies fled apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil. 14 (68:13)Though ye have lain among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold. 15 (68:14)When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon. 16 (68:15)The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; a high hill as the hill of Bashan. 17 (68:16)Why leap ye, ye lofty hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yes, the LORD will dwell in it for ever. 18 (68:17)The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place. 19 (68:18)Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yes, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them. 20 (68:19)Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. 21 (68:20)He that is our God is the God of salvation; and to GOD the Lord belong the issues from death. 22 (68:21)But God will wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such one as goeth on still in his trespasses. 23 (68:22)The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea. 24 (68:23)That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thy enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same. 25 (68:24)They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary. 26 (68:25)The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels. 27 (68:26)Bless ye God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel. 28 (68:27)There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their counsel, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali. 29 (68:28)Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us. 30 (68:29)Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents to thee. 31 (68:30)Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one shall submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in war. 32 (68:31)Princes shall come out of Egypt; Cush shall soon stretch out her hands to God. 33 (68:32)Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises to the Lord; Selah: 34 (68:33)To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice. 35 (68:34)Ascribe ye strength to God: his excellence is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds. 36 (68:35)O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power to his people.
