To the chief Musician, *A Psalm or Song of David.
Let them also that hate him flee †before him.
2 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.
3 But let ethe righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God:
Yea, let them †exceedingly rejoice.
4 Sing unto God, fsing praises to his name:
gExtol him that rideth upon the heavens
By his name hJAH, and rejoice before him.
5 A ifather of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows,
Is God in his holy habitation.
mHe bringeth out those which are bound with chains:
7 O God, pwhen thou wentest forth before thy people,
8 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.
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.
Great was the †company of those that published it.
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.
It was white as snow in dSalmon.
An high hill as the hill of Bashan.
16 Why eleap ye, ye high hills?
Yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.
The Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
Who daily loadeth us with benefits,
Even the God of our salvation. Selah.
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:
And ythe tongue of thy dogs in the same.
Even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
Among them were the damsels bplaying with timbrels.
26 cBless ye God in the congregations,
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.
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.
32 Sing unto God, rye kingdoms of the earth;
O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:
34 vAscribe ye strength unto God:
His excellency is over Israel,
The God of Israel is he
That giveth strength and power unto his people.
Blessed be God.
