Psalm 68 (WEBP)

[1] Let God arise! Let his enemies be scattered! Let them who hate him also flee before him.
[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.
[3] But let the righteous be glad. Let them rejoice before God. Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
[4] Sing to God! Sing praises to his name! Extol him who rides on the clouds: to Yah, his name! Rejoice before him!
[5] A father of the fatherless, and a defender of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
[6] God sets the lonely in families. He brings out the prisoners with singing, but the rebellious dwell in a sun-scorched land.
[7] God, when you went out before your people, when you marched through the wilderness... Selah.
[8] The earth trembled. The sky also poured down rain at the presence of the God of Sinai— at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
[9] You, God, sent a plentiful rain. You confirmed your inheritance when it was weary.
[10] Your congregation lived therein. You, God, prepared your goodness for the poor.
[11] The Lord announced the word. The ones who proclaim it are a great company.
[12] “Kings of armies flee! They flee!” She who waits at home divides the plunder,
[13] while you sleep among the camp fires, the wings of a dove sheathed with silver, her feathers with shining gold.
[14] When the Almighty scattered kings in her, it snowed on Zalmon.
[15] The mountains of Bashan are majestic mountains. The mountains of Bashan are rugged.
[16] Why do you look in envy, you rugged mountains, at the mountain where God chooses to reign? Yes, Yahweh will dwell there forever.
[17] The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them, from Sinai, into the sanctuary.
[18] You have ascended on high. You have led away captives. You have received gifts among people, yes, among the rebellious also, that Yah God might dwell there.
[19] Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burdens, even the God who is our salvation. Selah.
[20] God is to us a God of deliverance. To Yahweh, the Lord, belongs escape from death.
[21] But God will strike through the head of his enemies, the hairy scalp of such a one as still continues in his guiltiness.
[22] The Lord said, “I will bring you again from Bashan, I will bring you again from the depths of the sea,
[23] that you may crush them, dipping your foot in blood, that the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from your enemies.”
[24] They have seen your processions, God, even the processions of my God, my King, into the sanctuary.
[25] The singers went before, the minstrels followed after, among the ladies playing with tambourines,
[26] “Bless God in the congregations, even the Lord in the assembly of Israel!”
[27] There is little Benjamin, their ruler, the princes of Judah, their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
[28] Your God has commanded your strength. Strengthen, God, that which you have done for us.
[29] Because of your temple at Jerusalem, kings shall bring presents to you.
[30] Rebuke the wild animal of the reeds, the multitude of the bulls with the calves of the peoples. Trample under foot the bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war.
[31] Princes shall come out of Egypt. Ethiopia shall hurry to stretch out her hands to God.
[32] Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth! Sing praises to the Lord— Selah—
[33] to him who rides on the heaven of heavens, which are of old; behold, he utters his voice, a mighty voice.
[34] Ascribe strength to God! His excellency is over Israel, his strength is in the skies.
[35] You are awesome, God, in your sanctuaries. The God of Israel gives strength and power to his people. Praise be to God!

Psalm 68 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), A Psalm H4210 [or] Song H7892 of David H1732.» Let God H430 arise H6965 (8799), let his enemies H341 (8802) be scattered H6327 (8799): let them also that hate H8130 (8764) him flee H5127 (8799) before H6440 him.
[2] As smoke H6227 is driven away H5086 (8736), [so] drive [them] away H5086 (8799): as wax H1749 melteth H4549 (8736) before H6440 the fire H784, [so] let the wicked H7563 perish H6 (8799) at the presence H6440 of God H430.
[3] But let the righteous H6662 be glad H8055 (8799); let them rejoice H5970 (8799) before H6440 God H430: yea, let them exceedingly H8057 rejoice H7797 (8799).
[4] Sing H7891 (8798) unto God H430, sing praises H2167 (8761) to his name H8034: extol H5549 (8798) him that rideth H7392 (8802) upon the heavens H6160 by his name H8034 JAH H3050, and rejoice H5937 (8798) before H6440 him.
[5] A father H1 of the fatherless H3490, and a judge H1781 of the widows H490, [is] God H430 in his holy H6944 habitation H4583.
[6] God H430 setteth H3427 (8688) the solitary H3173 in families H1004: he bringeth out H3318 (8688) those which are bound H615 with chains H3574: but the rebellious H5637 (8802) dwell H7931 (8804) in a dry H6707 [land].
[7] O God H430, when thou wentest forth H3318 (8800) before H6440 thy people H5971, when thou didst march H6805 (8800) through the wilderness H3452; Selah H5542:
[8] The earth H776 shook H7493 (8804), the heavens H8064 also dropped H5197 (8804) at the presence H6440 of God H430: [even] Sinai H5514 itself H2088 [was moved] at the presence H6440 of God H430, the God H430 of Israel H3478.
[9] Thou, O God H430, didst send H5130 (8686) a plentiful H5071 rain H1653, whereby thou didst confirm H3559 (8790) thine inheritance H5159, when it was weary H3811 (8738).
[10] Thy congregation H2416 hath dwelt H3427 (8804) therein: thou, O God H430, hast prepared H3559 (8686) of thy goodness H2896 for the poor H6041.
[11] The Lord H136 gave H5414 (8799) the word H562: great H7227 [was] the company H6635 of those that published H1319 (8764) [it].
[12] Kings H4428 of armies H6635 did flee H5074 (8799) apace H5074 (8799): and she that tarried H5116 at home H1004 divided H2505 (8762) the spoil H7998.
[13] Though ye have lien H7901 (8799) among the pots H8240, [yet shall ye be as] the wings H3671 of a dove H3123 covered H2645 (8737) with silver H3701, and her feathers H84 with yellow H3422 gold H2742.
[14] When the Almighty H7706 scattered H6566 (8763) kings H4428 in it, it was [white] as snow H7949 (8686) in Salmon H6756.
[15] The hill H2022 of God H430 [is as] the hill H2022 of Bashan H1316; an high H1386 hill H2022 [as] the hill H2022 of Bashan H1316.
[16] Why leap H7520 (8762) ye, ye high H1386 hills H2022? [this is] the hill H2022 [which] God H430 desireth H2530 (8804) to dwell in H3427 (8800); yea, the LORD H3068 will dwell H7931 (8799) [in it] for ever H5331.
[17] The chariots H7393 of God H430 [are] twenty thousand H7239, [even] thousands H505 of angels H8136: the Lord H136 [is] among them, [as in] Sinai H5514, in the holy H6944 [place].
[18] Thou hast ascended H5927 (8804) on high H4791, thou hast led captivity H7628 captive H7617 (8804): thou hast received H3947 (8804) gifts H4979 for men H120; yea, [for] the rebellious H5637 (8802) also, that the LORD H3050 God H430 might dwell H7931 (8800) [among them].
[19] Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] the Lord H136, [who] daily H3117 H3117 loadeth H6006 (8799) us [with benefits, even] the God H410 of our salvation H3444. Selah H5542.
[20] [He that is] our God H410 [is] the God H410 of salvation H4190; and unto GOD H3069 the Lord H136 [belong] the issues H8444 from death H4194.
[21] But God H430 shall wound H4272 (8799) the head H7218 of his enemies H341 (8802), [and] the hairy H8181 scalp H6936 of such an one as goeth on still H1980 (8693) in his trespasses H817.
[22] The Lord H136 said H559 (8804), I will bring again H7725 (8686) from Bashan H1316, I will bring [my people] again H7725 (8686) from the depths H4688 of the sea H3220:
[23] That thy foot H7272 may be dipped H4272 (8799) in the blood H1818 of [thine] enemies H341 (8802), [and] the tongue H3956 of thy dogs H3611 in the same.
[24] They have seen H7200 (8804) thy goings H1979, O God H430; [even] the goings H1979 of my God H410, my King H4428, in the sanctuary H6944.
[25] The singers H7891 (8802) went before H6923 (8765), the players on instruments H5059 (8802) [followed] after H310; among H8432 [them were] the damsels H5959 playing with timbrels H8608 (8802).
[26] Bless H1288 (8761) ye God H430 in the congregations H4721, [even] the Lord H136, from the fountain H4726 of Israel H3478.
[27] There [is] little H6810 Benjamin H1144 [with] their ruler H7287 (8802), the princes H8269 of Judah H3063 [and] their council H7277, the princes H8269 of Zebulun H2074, [and] the princes H8269 of Naphtali H5321.
[28] Thy God H430 hath commanded H6680 (8765) thy strength H5797: strengthen H5810 (8798), O God H430, that which H2098 thou hast wrought H6466 (8804) for us.
[29] Because of thy temple H1964 at Jerusalem H3389 shall kings H4428 bring H2986 (8686) presents H7862 unto thee.
[30] Rebuke H1605 (8798) the company H2416 of spearmen H7070, the multitude H5712 of the bulls H47, with the calves H5695 of the people H5971, [till every one] submit H7511 (8693) himself with pieces H7518 of silver H3701: scatter H967 (8765) thou the people H5971 [that] delight H2654 (8799) in war H7128.
[31] Princes H2831 shall come out H857 (8799) of Egypt H4714; Ethiopia H3568 shall soon stretch out H7323 (8686) her hands H3027 unto God H430.
[32] Sing H7891 (8798) unto God H430, ye kingdoms H4467 of the earth H776; O sing praises H2167 (8761) unto the Lord H136; Selah H5542:
[33] To him that rideth H7392 (8802) upon the heavens H8064 of heavens H8064, [which were] of old H6924; lo, he doth send out H5414 (8799) his voice H6963, [and that] a mighty H5797 voice H6963.
[34] Ascribe H5414 (8798) ye strength H5797 unto God H430: his excellency H1346 [is] over Israel H3478, and his strength H5797 [is] in the clouds H7834.
[35] O God H430, [thou art] terrible H3372 (8737) out of thy holy places H4720: the God H410 of Israel H3478 [is] he that giveth H5414 (8802) strength H5797 and power H8592 unto [his] people H5971. Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] God H430.
