Psalms 68

A prayer at the removing of the Ark.

Psalms 68:1 {For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David, a Song.} Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered; Let them also that hate him flee before him. Psalms 68:2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: As wax 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 exult before God: Yea, let them rejoice with gladness.

An exhortation to praise God for his mercies,

Psalms 68:4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: Cast up a highway for him that rideth through the deserts; His name is Jehovah; and exult ye before him. Psalms 68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, Is God in his holy habitation. Psalms 68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: He bringeth out the prisoners into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a parched 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 wilderness; Selah. Psalms 68:8 The earth trembled, The heavens also dropped [rain] at the presence of God: Yon Sinai [trembled] at the presence of God, the God of Israel. Psalms 68:9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, Thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary. Psalms 68:10 Thy congregation dwelt therein: Thou, O God, didst prepare of thy goodness for the poor. Psalms 68:11 The Lord giveth the word: The women that publish the tidings are a great host. Psalms 68:12 Kings of armies flee, they flee; And she that tarrieth at home divideth the spoil. Psalms 68:13 When ye lie among the sheepfolds, [It is as] the wings of a dove covered with silver, And her pinions with yellow gold. Psalms 68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings therein, [It was as when] it snoweth in Zalmon. Psalms 68:15 A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan; A high mountain is the mountain of Bashan. Psalms 68:16 Why look ye askance, ye high mountains, At the mountain which God hath desired for his abode? Yea, Jehovah will dwell [in it] for ever. Psalms 68:17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands upon thousands; The Lord is among them, [as in] Sinai, in the sanctuary. Psalms 68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led away captives; Thou hast received gifts among men, Yea, [among] the rebellious also, that Jehovah God might dwell [with them].

for his great works.

Psalms 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily beareth our burden, Even the God who is our salvation. Selah. Psalms 68:20 God is unto us a God of deliverances; And unto Jehovah the Lord belongeth escape from death. Psalms 68:21 But God will smite through the head of his enemies, The hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his guiltiness. Psalms 68:22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring [them] again from the depths of the sea; Psalms 68:23 That thou mayest crush [them], [dipping] thy foot in blood, That the tongue of thy dogs may have its portion from [thine] enemies. Psalms 68:24 They have seen thy goings, O God, Even the goings of my God, my King, into the sanctuary. Psalms 68:25 The singers went before, the minstrels followed after, In the midst of the damsels playing with timbrels. Psalms 68:26 Bless ye God in the congregations, Even the Lord, [ye that are] of the fountain of Israel. Psalms 68:27 There is little Benjamin their ruler, The princes of Judah [and] their council, The princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali. Psalms 68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: Strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us. Psalms 68:29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem Kings shall bring presents unto thee. Psalms 68:30 Rebuke the wild beast of the reeds, The multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the peoples, Trampling under foot the pieces of silver: He hath scattered the peoples that delight in war. Psalms 68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall haste to stretch out her hands unto God. Psalms 68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; Oh sing praises unto the Lord; Selah. Psalms 68:33 To him that rideth upon the heaven of heavens, which are of old; Lo, he uttereth his voice, a mighty voice. Psalms 68:34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: His excellency is over Israel, And his strength is in the skies. Psalms 68:35 O God, [thou art] terrible out of thy holy places: The God of Israel, he giveth strength and power unto [his] people. Blessed be God.
