Psalms 68

A prayer at the removing of the Ark.

Psalms 68:1 {To the chiefe musition, a psalme of Dauid, which is a song.} In case the Lorde woulde aryse, his enemies woulde be scattered: and they that hate hym woulde flee from his face. Psalms 68:2 Lyke as the smoke vanisheth, [so] wylt thou cause [them] to vanishe away: and lyke as water melteth at the fire, [so] wyll the vngodly perishe at the presence of the Lorde.
