Psalm 68

Psalm 68

To the chief Musician, *A Psalm or Song of David.

Let aGod arise, let his enemies bbe scattered:

Let them also that hate him flee before him.

cAs smoke is driven away, so drive them away:

dAs wax melteth before the fire,

So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

But let ethe righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God:

Yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

Sing unto God, fsing praises to his name:

gExtol him that rideth upon the heavens

By his name hJAH, and rejoice before him.

A ifather of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows,

Is God in his holy habitation.

God ksetteth the lsolitary in families:

mHe bringeth out those which are bound with chains:

But nthe rebellious odwell in a dry land.

O God, pwhen thou wentest forth before thy people,

qWhen thou didst march through rthe wilderness; Selah:

qThe earth shook, the heavens also dropped

At the presence of God: even sSinai itself was moved

At the presence of God, the God of Israel.

tThou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain,

Whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.

10  Thy ucongregation hath dwelt therein:

Thou, O God, hast wprepared of thy goodness for the poor.

11  The Lord gave the word:

Great was the company of those that published it.

12  xKings of armies did flee apace:

And yshe that tarried at home zdivided the spoil.

13  Though ye have lien among athe pots,

Yet shall ye be as the bwings of a dove covered with silver,

And her bfeathers with yellow gold.

14  When the Almighty cscattered kings ||in it,

It was white as snow in dSalmon.

15  The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan;

An high hill as the hill of Bashan.

16  Why eleap ye, ye high hills?

This is fthe hill gwhich God desireth to dwell in;

Yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.

17  hThe chariots of God are itwenty thousand, ||even thousands of angels:

The Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

18  kThou hast ascended on high, lthou hast led captivity captive:

mThou hast received gifts for men;

Yea, for nthe rebellious also, othat the pLord God might dwell among them.

19  Blessed be the Lord,

Who daily loadeth us with benefits,

Even the God of our salvation. Selah.

20  He that is our God is the God of salvation;

And qunto God the Lord belong rthe issues from death.

21  But sGod shall wound the head of his enemies,

And the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.

22  The Lord said, I will bring tagain from Bashan,

I will bring my people again ufrom the depths of the sea:

23  xThat thy foot may be ||dipped in the blood of thine enemies,

And ythe tongue of thy dogs in the same.

24  They have seen thy goings, O God;

Even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.

25  zThe singers went before, athe players on instruments followed after;

Among them were the damsels bplaying with timbrels.

26  cBless ye God in the congregations,

Even the Lord, ||from dthe fountain of Israel.

27  There is elittle Benjamin with their ruler,

The princes of Judah ||and their council,

fThe princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.

28  Thy God hath gcommanded thy strength:

Strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.

29  Because of thy temple at Jerusalem

hShall kings ibring presents unto thee.

30  kRebuke ||the lcompany of spearmen,

The multitude of mthe bulls, with the calves of the people,

Till every one nsubmit himself with pieces of silver:

||Scatter thou the people that delight in war.

31  Princes shall come oout of pEgypt;

pqEthiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.

32  Sing unto God, rye kingdoms of the earth;

O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:

33  To him that srideth upon tthe heavens of heavens, which were of old;

Lo, uhe doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.

34  vAscribe ye strength unto God:

His excellency is over Israel,

And whis strength is in the ||xclouds.

35  O God, thou art yterrible zout of thy holy places:

The God of Israel is he

That giveth strength and power unto his people.

Blessed be God.
