To the choir director. Of David. A Psalm; a Song

Ps 68:1Let God arise; let His enemies be scattered; / And let those who hate Him flee before Him.

Ps 68:2As smoke is driven away, You will drive them away; / As wax melts before fire, / The wicked will perish before God.

Ps 68:3But the righteous will rejoice; they will exult before God / And be glad with rejoicing.

Ps 68:4Sing to God; sing psalms to His name; / Triumph in Him who rides through the deserts — / For Jah is His name — and exult before Him.

Ps 68:5A Father to the orphans and a Judge for the widows / Is God in His holy habitation.

Ps 68:6God causes the solitary to dwell in a household; / He brings the prisoners forth into prosperity; / But the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

Ps 68:7O God, when You went forth before Your people, / When You marched through the desert, Selah

Ps 68:8The earth trembled, the heavens also dripped, / At the presence of God; / Sinai there quaked / At the presence of God, the God of Israel.

Ps 68:9You shed forth bountiful rain, O God; / You confirmed Your inheritance when it languished.

Ps 68:10Your living flock dwelt in the land; / In Your goodness You provided for the poor, O God.

Ps 68:11The Lord gives the command; / The women who bear the glad tidings are a great host.

Ps 68:12The kings of the armies flee. / They flee! / And she who abides at home / Divides the spoil.

Ps 68:13Though you lie among the sheepfolds, / There are dove wings covered with silver, / And its pinions, with greenish-yellow gold.

Ps 68:14When the Almighty scattered / The kings in the land, / It snowed on Zalmon.

Ps 68:15O mighty mountain, O mountain of Bashan, / O many-peaked mountain, O mountain of Bashan:

Ps 68:16Why do you look with envy, O many-peaked mountains, / At the mountain on which God desires to dwell? / Indeed Jehovah will dwell there forever.

Ps 68:17The chariots of God are twenty thousand, / Thousands upon thousands; / The Lord is among them, / As at Sinai, in the sanctuary.

Ps 68:18You have ascended on high; You have led captive those taken captive; / You have received gifts among men, / Even the rebellious ones also, / That Jehovah God may dwell among them.

Ps 68:19Blessed be the Lord, who day by day loads us with good; / God is our salvation. Selah

Ps 68:20God is to us / A God of deliverance, / And with Jehovah the Lord / Are the goings forth even from death.

Ps 68:21Indeed God will smash / The head of His enemies, / The hairy crown / Of him who goes about in his guiltiness.

Ps 68:22The Lord said, I will bring them again from Bashan; / I will bring them again from the depths of the sea,

Ps 68:23That you may bathe your foot in blood, / That the tongue of your dogs may have their portion from the enemies.

Ps 68:24They have seen Your goings, O God, / The goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary:

Ps 68:25Singers go before; players after; / In the midst of virgins sounding the tambourines.

Ps 68:26Bless God in the congregations, / Even Jehovah, O you who are of the fountain of Israel.

Ps 68:27There are little Benjamin, who rules them, / And the princes of Judah in their company, / The princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali.

Ps 68:28Your God has commanded your strength; / Strengthen, O God, that which You have done for us.

Ps 68:29Because of Your temple at Jerusalem, / Kings will bring a gift to You.

Ps 68:30Rebuke the animals of the reeds, / The herd of the bulls among the calves of the peoples, / Trampling on those who lust after silver; / Scatter the peoples who take delight in war.

Ps 68:31Nobles will come out of Egypt; / Cush will quickly stretch out its hands to God.

Ps 68:32O kingdoms of the earth, / Sing to God, / Sing psalms to the Lord, Selah

Ps 68:33To Him who rides upon the ancient heaven of heavens. / Behold, He utters His voice, a mighty voice.

Ps 68:34Ascribe strength to God; / His excellence is over Israel, / And His strength is in the skies.

Ps 68:35You are awesome, O God, from Your sanctuaries. / The God of Israel, He gives strength and power to the people. / Blessed be God!
