Psalms 68


Let God Arise

To the director; [2of an ode 1a psalm]; to David.

1Let God arise, and let [2be dispersed 1his enemies], and let [4flee 5from 6his face 1the ones 2detesting 3him]! 2As [2dissipates 1smoke], let them dissipate! As [2melts away 1beeswax] from the face of the fire, thus shall [3be destroyed 1the 2sinners] from the face of God. 3But [2the 3just 1let] be glad! Let them exult in the presence of God! Let them be made happy with gladness! 4Sing to God! Strum to his name! Open the way to the one being mounted unto the west -- the  lord is his name, and exult before him! They shall be disturbed before his face. 5The father of the orphans, and judge of the widows -- God in [2place 1his holy]. 6 God settles simple people in a house; leading out the prisoners being shackled in courage; in like manner the ones being greatly embittered, dwelling in tombs. 7O God, in your going forth before your people in your passing over in the wilderness, 8the earth was shaken. For even the heavens dripped water before the face of the God of Sinai; before the face of the God of Israel. 9[2rain 3as a voluntary act 1Will you separate], O God, for your inheritance? Even it was weak, but you restored it. 10 Your living creatures dwell in it; you prepared in your graciousness for the poor. 11The [2God 1  lord] shall give discourse to the ones announcing good news [2force 1for a great]. 12The king of the forces of the beloved, for the beauty of the house to divide the spoils. 13If you should sleep in the midst of the lots, the wings of the dove being silver plated, and her upper back in greenness of gold; 14in the [2drawing apart 3the 1heavenly one] kings upon it, they shall be made as snow in Salmon. 15The mountain of God; the mountain being plentiful; the mountain for making cheese; the mountain being plentiful. 16Why do you undertake, O mountains making cheese, the mountain which God thinks well to dwell in it? For even the  lord encamps unto the end. 17The chariot of God -- ten thousand-fold; thousands of prospering ones. The  lord among them in Sinai, in the holy place. 18You ascended into the height; you captured captivity; you received gifts by men; for even [2the ones resisting persuasion 1to encamp among]. 19The  lord God blessed. Blessed be the  lord day by day, for you greatly prospered us, O God of our deliverances. 20 Our God, the God to deliver, even the  lord delivering the ones at the outer reaches of death. 21But God shall fracture in pieces the heads of his enemies; [2tops of heads 1the hairy] traveling in their trespasses. 22The  lord said from out of Bashan, I shall return. I shall return in the depths of the sea. 23That [2should be dipped 1your foot] in blood, and the tongue of your dogs be stained [3enemies 1from 2his]. 24[2were viewed 1Your goings], O God; the goings of my God, the king, in the holy place. 25[2went beforehand 1Rulers] being next to ones strumming, in the midst of young women performing on tambourines. 26In assemblies bless God! the  lord from the springs of Israel. 27There Benjamin the younger is in astonishment, even the rulers of Judah, and their governors, the rulers of Zebulun, the rulers of Naphtali. 28Give charge, O God, to your power! Strengthen, O God! this which you worked out among us. 29Because of your temple at Jerusalem [4to you 2will bring 1kings 3gifts]. 30Give reproach to the wild beasts of the reed! the gathering of the bulls among the heifers of the peoples; to lock up the ones being tried by silver. Disperse the nations! the ones [2wars 1wanting]. 31[2shall come 1Ambassadors] from out of Egypt. Ethiopia shall go beforehand with her hand to God. 32O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God! Strum to the  lord! PAUSE. 33to the one mounting upon the heaven of the heaven, according to the east. Behold, he shall make his voice a sound of power. 34Give glory to God! [2is over 3Israel 1his majesty], and his power is in the clouds. 35God is wonderful in his holy places. The God of Israel -- he shall give power and fortification to his people. Blessed be God.
