For the choir director. A Psalm of David. A Song.
And 3let those who hate Him flee before Him.
2 As asmoke is driven away, so drive them away;
As bwax melts before the fire,
So let the cwicked perish before God.
3 But let the arighteous be glad; let them exult before God;
Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
4 Sing to God, asing praises to His name;
Is God in His choly habitation.
He bleads out the prisoners into prosperity,
Only cthe rebellious dwell in a parched land.
7 O God, when You awent forth before Your people,
When You bmarched through the wilderness,
8 The aearth quaked;
The bheavens also dropped rain at the presence of God;
9 You ashed abroad a plentiful rain, O God;
You confirmed Your inheritance when it was 1parched.
You aprovided in Your goodness for the poor, O God.
11 The Lord gives the 1command;
The awomen who proclaim the good tidings are a great host:
12 “aKings of armies flee, they flee,
And she who remains at home will bdivide the spoil!”
You are like the wings of a dove covered with silver,
And its pinions with glistening gold.
It was snowing in bZalmon.
A mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan.
At the mountain which God has adesired for His abode?
Surely bthe Lord will dwell there forever.
2The Lord is among them as at Sinai, in holiness.
You have received gifts among men,
Even among the rebellious also, that 1the Lord God may dwell there.
19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily abears our burden,
bThe God who is our salvation.
20 God is to us a aGod of deliverances;
21 Surely God will ashatter the head of His enemies,
The hairy crown of him who goes on in his guilty deeds.
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea;
The tongue of your bdogs may have its portion from your enemies.”
25 The asingers went on, the musicians after them,
26 aBless God in the congregations,
Even the Lord, you who are of the bfountain of Israel.
The princes of Judah in their throng,
The princes of bZebulun, the princes of Naphtali.
29 1Because of Your temple at Jerusalem
aKings will bring gifts to You.
The herd of bbulls with the calves of the peoples,
Trampling under foot the pieces of silver;
He has cscattered the peoples who delight in war.
31 Envoys will come out of aEgypt;
32 Sing to God, O akingdoms of the earth,
bSing praises to the Lord,
34 aAscribe strength to God;
His majesty is over Israel
The God of Israel Himself bgives strength and power to the people.
cBlessed be God!
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
