Psalms 68

A prayer at the removing of the Ark.

Psalms 68:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme or song of Dauid.} God will arise, and his enemies shalbe scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee before him. Psalms 68:2 As the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou driue them away: and as waxe melteth before the fire, so shall the wicked perish at the presence of God. Psalms 68:3 But the righteous shalbe glad, and reioyce before God: yea, they shall leape for ioye.

An exhortation to praise God for his mercies,

Psalms 68:4 Sing vnto God, and sing prayses vnto his name: exalt him that rideth vpon the heauens, in his Name Iah, and reioyce before him. Psalms 68:5 He is a Father of the fatherlesse, & a Iudge of the widowes, euen God in his holy habitation. Psalms 68:6 God maketh the solitarie to dwell in families, and deliuereth them that were prisoners in stocks: but the rebellious shal 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 wentest through the wildernesse, (Selah) Psalms 68:8 The earth shooke, and the heauens dropped at the presence of this God: euen Sinai was moued at the presence of God, euen the God of Israel. Psalms 68:9 Thou, O God, sendest a gracious raine vpon thine inheritance, and thou didest refresh it when it was wearie. Psalms 68:10 Thy Congregation dwelled therein: for thou, O God, hast of thy goodnesse prepared it for the poore. Psalms 68:11 The Lorde gaue matter to the women to tell of the great armie. Psalms 68:12 Kings of the armies did flee: they did flee, and she that remained in the house, deuided the spoyle. Psalms 68:13 Though ye haue lien among pots, yet shal ye be as the winges of a doue that is couered with siluer, and whose fethers are like yelowe golde. Psalms 68:14 When the Almightie scattered Kings in it, it was white as the snowe in Zalmon. Psalms 68:15 The mountaine of God is like the mountaine of Bashan: it is an high Mountaine, as mount Bashan. Psalms 68:16 Why leape ye, ye high mountaines? as for this Mountaine, God deliteth to dwell in it: yea, the Lord will dwell in it for euer. Psalms 68:17 The charets of God are twentie thousande thousand Angels, and the Lord is among them, as in the Sanctuarie of Sinai. Psalms 68:18 Thou art gone vp on high: thou hast led captiuitie captiue, and receiued giftes for men: yea, euen the rebellious hast thou led, that the Lorde God might dwell there.

for his great works.

Psalms 68:19 Praysed be the Lorde, euen the God of our saluation, which ladeth vs dayly with benefites. Selah. Psalms 68:20 This is our God, euen the God that saueth vs: and to the Lord God belong the issues of death. Psalms 68:21 Surely God will wound the head of his enemies, and the hearie pate of him that walketh in his sinnes. Psalms 68:22 The Lord hath sayde, I will bring my people againe from Bashan: I will bring them againe from the depths of the Sea: Psalms 68:23 That thy foote may bee dipped in blood, and the tongue of thy dogges in the blood of the enemies, euen in it. Psalms 68:24 They haue seene, O God, thy goings, the goings of my God, and my King, which art in the Sanctuarie. Psalms 68:25 The singers went before, the players of instruments after: in the middes were the maides playing with timbrels. Psalms 68:26 Praise yee God in the assemblies, and the Lord, ye that are of the fountaine of Israel. Psalms 68:27 There was litle Beniamin with their ruler, and the princes of Iudah with their assemblie, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali. Psalms 68:28 Thy God hath appointed thy strength: stablish, O God, that, which thou hast wrought in vs, Psalms 68:29 Out of thy Temple vpon Ierusalem: and Kings shall bring presents vnto thee. Psalms 68:30 Destroy the company of the spearemen, & multitude of the mightie bulles with the calues of the people, that tread vnder feete pieces of siluer: scatter the people that delite in warre. Psalms 68:31 Then shall the princes come out of Egypt: Ethiopia shall hast to stretche her hands vnto God. Psalms 68:32 Sing vnto God, O yee kingdomes of the earth: sing praise vnto the Lord, (Selah) Psalms 68:33 To him that rideth vpon ye most high heauens, which were from the beginning: beholde, he will send out by his voice a mightie sound. Psalms 68:34 Ascribe the power to God: for his maiestie is vpon Israel, and his strength is in the cloudes. Psalms 68:35 O God, thou art terrible out of thine holie places: the God of Israel is hee that giueth strength and power vnto the people: praised be God.
