To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.
1 Let aGod arise,
Let His enemies be scattered;
Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.
2 bAs smoke is driven away,
So drive them away;
cAs wax melts before the fire,
So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But dlet the righteous be glad;
Let them rejoice before God;
Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.
And rejoice before Him.
5 gA father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.
6 hGod sets the solitary in families;
iHe brings out those who are bound into prosperity;
But jthe rebellious dwell in a dry land.
7 O God, kwhen You went out before Your people,
When You marched through the wilderness,
The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God;
Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 lYou, O God, sent a plentiful rain,
Whereby You confirmed Your inheritance,
When it was weary.
mYou, O God, provided from Your goodness for the poor.
Great was the 4company of those who proclaimed it:
12 “Kings nof armies flee, they flee,
And she who remains at home divides the 5spoil.
pYou will be like the wings of a dove covered with silver,
And her feathers with yellow gold.”
14 qWhen the Almighty scattered kings in it,
It was white as snow in Zalmon.
A mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan.
16 Why do you 7fume with envy, you mountains of many peaks?
rThis is the mountain which God desires to dwell in;
Yes, the Lord will dwell in it forever.
17 sThe chariots of God are twenty thousand,
Even thousands of thousands;
The Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy Place.
18 tYou have ascended on high,
uYou have led captivity captive;
vYou have received gifts among men,
Even from wthe rebellious,
xThat the Lord God might dwell there.
Who daily loads us with benefits,
The God of our salvation!
And yto God the Lord belong escapes from death.
21 But zGod will wound the head of His enemies,
aThe hairy scalp of the one who still goes on in his trespasses.
22 The Lord said, “I will bring bback from Bashan,
I will bring them back cfrom the depths of the sea,
eAnd the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from your enemies.”
24 They have seen Your 9procession, O God,
The procession of my God, my King, into the sanctuary.
25 fThe singers went before, the players on instruments followed after;
Among them were the maidens playing timbrels.
The Lord, from gthe fountain of Israel.
27 hThere is little Benjamin, their leader,
The princes of Judah and their 1company,
The princes of Zebulun and the princes of Naphtali.
Strengthen, O God, what You have done for us.
jKings will bring presents to You.
kThe herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples,
Till everyone lsubmits himself with pieces of silver.
Scatter the peoples who delight in war.
31 mEnvoys will come out of Egypt;
32 Sing to God, you pkingdoms of the earth;
Oh, sing praises to the Lord,
33 To Him qwho rides on the heaven of heavens, which were of old!
Indeed, He sends out His voice, a rmighty voice.
34 sAscribe strength to God;
His excellence is over Israel,
And His strength is in the clouds.
35 O God, tYou are more awesome than Your holy places.
The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people.
Blessed be God!
