Psalms 68

A prayer at the removing of the Ark.

Psalms 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. Psalms 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. Psalms 68:3 But let the righteous be glad: let them reioyce before God, yea let them exceedingly reioyce.

An exhortation to praise God for his mercies,

Psalms 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. Psalms 68:5 A father of the fatherlesse, and a iudge of the widowes, [is] God in his holy habitation. Psalms 68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: hee bringeth out those which are bound with chaines, but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

for his care of the Church,

Psalms 68:7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people; when thou didst march through the wildernes, Selah. Psalms 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. Psalms 68:9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentifull raine, whereby thou didst confirme thine inheritance, when it was weary. Psalms 68:10 Thy Congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodnesse for the poore. Psalms 68:11 The Lord gaue the word: great was the company of those that published [it]. Psalms 68:12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that taried at home, diuided the spoile. Psalms 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. Psalms 68:14 When the Almighty scattered Kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon. Psalms 68:15 The hil of God is [as] the hill of Bashan, an high hill [as] the hill of Bashan. Psalms 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. Psalms 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. Psalms 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].

for his great works.

Psalms 68:19 Blessed [be] the Lord, who daily loadeth vs [with benefits, euen] the God of our saluation. Selah. Psalms 68:20 Hee that [is] our God, [is] the God of saluation; and vnto GOD the Lord [belong] the issues from death. Psalms 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. Psalms 68:22 The Lord said, I will bring againe from Bashan, I will bring [my people] againe from the depthes of the sea: Psalms 68:23 That thy foote may be dipped in the blood of [thine] enemies, [and] the tongue of thy dogges in the same. Psalms 68:24 They haue seene thy goings, O God, [euen] the goings of my God, my King, in the Sanctuarie. Psalms 68:25 The singers went before, the players on instruments [followed] after; amongst [them were] the damosels playing [with] timbrels. Psalms 68:26 Blesse yee God, in the Congregations, [euen] the LORD, from the fountaine of Israel. Psalms 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. Psalms 68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that [which] thou hast wrought for vs. Psalms 68:29 Because of thy Temple at Ierusalem, shall kings bring presents vnto thee. Psalms 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. Psalms 68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt, Ethiopia shall soone stretch out her hands vnto God. Psalms 68:32 Sing vnto God, yee kingdomes of the earth: O sing praises [vnto] the Lord, Selah: Psalms 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. Psalms 68:34 Ascribe yee strength vnto God: his excellencie [is] ouer Israel, and his strength [is] in the cloudes. Psalms 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.
