Psalm 68

68:1 To the chiefe Musician. A Psalme or song of Dauid. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him, flee before him. 68:2 As smoke is driuen away, so driue them away: as waxe melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 68:3 But let the righteous be glad: let them reioyce before God, yea let them exceedingly reioyce. 68:4 Sing vnto God, sing praises to his Name: extoll him that rideth vpon the heauens, by his Name Iah, and reioyce before him. 68:5 A father of the fatherlesse, and a iudge of the widowes, is God in his holy habitation. 68:6 God setteth the solitary in a families: hee bringeth out those which are bound with chaines, but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. 68:7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people; when thou didst march through the wildernes, Selah. 68:8 The earth shooke, the heauens also dropped at the presence of God: euen Sinai it selfe was mooued at the presence of God, the God of Israel. 68:9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentifull raine, whereby thou didst confirme thine inheritance, when it was weary. 68:10 Thy Congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodnesse for the poore. 68:11 The Lord gaue the word: great was the company of those that published it. 68:12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that taried at home, diuided the spoile. 68:13 Though ye haue lien among the pots, yet shall yee bee as the wings of a doue, couered with siluer, 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 hil of God is as the hill of Bashan, an high hill as the hill of Bashan. 68:16 Why leape ye, ye high hilles this is the Hil which God desireth to dwell in, yea the Lord will dwel in it for euer. 68:17 The chariots of God are twentie thousand, euen thousands of Angels: the Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the holy place. 68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast ledde captiuitie captiue, thou hast receiued giftes for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them. 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth vs with benefits, euen the God of our saluation. Selah. 68:20 Hee that is our God, is the God of saluation; and vnto God the Lord belong the issues from death. 68:21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies: and the hairy scalpe of such a one as goeth on still in his trespasses. 68:22 The Lord said, I will bring againe from Bashan, I will bring my people againe from the depthes of the sea: 68:23 That thy foote may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogges in the same. 68:24 They haue seene thy goings, O God, euen the goings of my God, my King, in the Sanctuarie. 68:25 The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; amongst them were the damosels playing with timbrels. 68:26 Blesse yee God, in the Congregations, euen the Lord, from the fountaine of Israel. 68:27 There is little Beniamin with their ruler, the princes of Iudah and their Councill, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali. 68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for vs. 68:29 Because of thy Temple at Ierusalem, shall kings bring presents vnto thee. 68:30 Rebuke the company of spearemen, the multitude of the bulles, with the calues of the people, till euery one submit himselfe with pieces of siluer: scatter thou the people that delite in warre. 68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt, Ethiopia shall soone stretch out her hands vnto God. 68:32 Sing vnto God, yee kingdomes of the earth: O sing praises vnto the Lord, Selah: 68:33 To him that rideth vpon the heauens of heauens, which were of olde: loe, hee doeth send out his voice, and that a mightie voice. 68:34 Ascribe yee strength vnto God: his excellencie is ouer Israel, and his strength is in the cloudes. 68:35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giueth strength, and power vnto his people: blessed be God.
