Psalms 67

1Unto the end. A Canticle Psalm of David himself. 2May God rise up, and may his enemies be scattered, and may those who hate him flee from before his face. 3Just as smoke vanishes, so may they vanish. Just as wax flows away before the face of fire, so may sinners pass away before the face of God. 4And so, let the just feast, and let them exult in the sight of God and be delighted in gladness. 5Sing to God, sing a psalm to his name. Make a path for him, who ascends over the west. The Lord is his name. Exult in his sight; they will be stirred up before his face, 6the father of orphans and the judge of widows. God is in his holy place. 7It is God who makes men dwell in a house under one custom. He leads out those who are strongly bound, and similarly, those who exasperate, who dwell in sepulchers. 8O God, when you departed in the sight of your people, when you passed through the desert, 9the earth was moved, for the heavens rained down before the face of the God of Sinai, before the face of the God of Israel. 10You will set aside for your inheritance, O God, a willing rain. And though it was weak, truly, you have made it perfect. 11Your animals will dwell in it. O God, in your sweetness, you have provided for the poor. 12The Lord will give the word to evangelizers, along with great virtue. 13The King of virtue is beloved among the beloved. And the beauty of the house will divide spoils. 14If you take your rest in the midst of the clergy, you will be like a dove whose wings are covered with fine silver and edged with pale gold. 15When heaven discerns kings to be over her, they will be whitened with the snows of Zalmon. 16The mountain of God is a fat mountain, a dense mountain, a thick mountain. 17So then, why are you distrustful of dense mountains? The mountain on which God is well pleased to dwell, even there, the Lord will dwell until the end. 18The chariot of God is ten thousand fold: thousands rejoice. The Lord is with them in Sinai, in the holy place. 19You have ascended on high; you have taken captivity captive. You have accepted gifts among men. For even those who do not believe dwell with the Lord God. 20Blessed is the Lord, day after day. The God of our salvation will make our journey prosper for us. 21Our God is the God who will bring about our salvation, and our Lord is the Lord who has brought an end to death. 22So then, truly, God will break the heads of his enemies, the hairy skull of those who wander around in their offenses. 23The Lord said: I will turn them away from Bashan, I will turn them into the depths of the sea, 24so that your feet may be soaked in the blood of your enemies, so that the tongue of your dogs may be soaked with the same. 25O God, they have seen your arrival, the arrival of my God, of my king who is in a holy place. 26The leaders went ahead, united with the singers of psalms, in the midst of girls playing on timbrels. 27In the churches, bless the Lord God from the fountains of Israel. 28In that place, Benjamin is a youth in ecstasy of mind. The leaders of Judah are their governors: the leaders of Zebulun, the leaders of Naphtali. 29Command by your virtue, O God. Confirm in this place, O God, what you have wrought in us. 30Before your temple in Jerusalem, kings will offer gifts to you. 31Rebuke the wild beasts of the reeds, a congregation of bulls with the cows of the people, for they seek to exclude those who have been tested like silver. Scatter the nations that are pleased by wars. 32Ambassadors will come out of Egypt. Ethiopia will offer in advance her hands to God. 33Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth. Sing psalms to the Lord. Sing psalms to God. 34He ascends, up to the heaven of the heavens, toward the east. Behold, he will utter his voice, the voice of virtue. 35Give glory to God beyond Israel. His magnificence and his virtue is in the clouds. 36God is wonderful in his saints. The God of Israel himself will give virtue and strength to his people. Blessed is God.
