PSALMS · Chapter 68
68:1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that
hate him flee before him.
68:2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
68:3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
68:4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rides upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
68:6 God sets the solitary in families: he brings out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
68:7 O God, when you went forth before your people, when you did march through the wilderness; Selah:
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.
68:9 You, O God, did send a plentiful rain, whereby you did confirm your inheritance, when it was weary.
68:10 Your congregation has dwelt therein: you, O God, have prepared of your goodness for the poor.
68:11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.
68:12 Kings of armies did flee swiftly: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
68:13 Though all of you have lien among the pots, yet shall all of you be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.
68:15 The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.
68:16 Why leap all of you, all of you high hills? this is the hill which God desires to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.
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.
68:18 You have ascended on high, you have led captivity captive: you have received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.
68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
68:20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.
68:21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goes on still in his trespasses.
68:22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea:
68:23 That your foot may be dipped in the blood of your enemies, and the tongue of your dogs in the same.
68:24 They have seen your activities, O God; even the activities of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
68:25 The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.
68:26 Bless all of you God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
68:27 There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
68:28 Your God has commanded your strength: strengthen, O God, that which you have wrought for us.
68:29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto you.
68:30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter you the people that delight in war.
68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
68:32 Sing unto God, all of you kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:
68:33 To him that rides upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he does send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
68:34 Ascribe all of you strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.
