Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 68

A prayer at the removing of the Ark.

Psalms 68:1 {To the Chief Musician. David's. A Melody, a Song.} Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered, Yea let them that hate him flee before him: Psalms 68:2 As smoke is driven about, Let them be driven about,—As wax is melted before a fire, Let the lawless perish before 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 ye to God, Make music of his Name,—Lift up (a song), to him that rideth through the waste plains,—Since Yah is his name, exult ye before him. Psalms 68:5 The father of the fatherless, And the advocate of widows, Is God, in his holy habitation. Psalms 68:6 God, is he that causeth the solitary to dwell in a home, That bringeth out prisoners into prosperity, But, the rebellious, have made their habitation in a sunburnt land.

for his care of the Church,

Psalms 68:7 O God! When thou camest forth before thy people, When thou didst stride through the wilderness, [Selah.] Psalms 68:8 Earth, trembled, Yea, the heavens, dripped at the presence of God,—This Sinai—at the presence of God, the God of Israel. Psalms 68:9 A bounteous rain, dost thou shed abroad, O God, upon thine inheritance, When exhausted, thou thyself, hast supported it: Psalms 68:10 Thy living host, have remained therein, Thou dost provide, in thy bounty, for the humbled ones—O God! Psalms 68:11 Let, My Lord, but give the word, The herald bands, will be a mighty host: Psalms 68:12 Kings of armies, they flee! they flee! And, she that stayeth at home, shall share the spoil. Psalms 68:13 Though ye rest between the folds, The wings of the dove, shall be covered with silver, And, her pinions, with green-shimmering gold. Psalms 68:14 When the Almighty scattereth kings therein, It will gleam like snow in the gloom: Psalms 68:15 A mighty mountain, is the mountain of Bashan, A mountain of peaks, is the mountain of Bashan!— Psalms 68:16 Wherefore start ye up, ye mountains, ye peaks? The mountain God hath coveted for his habitation, Surely, Yahweh will inhabit it ever! Psalms 68:17 The chariots of God, are two myriads—thousands repeated, My Lord, is among them, Sinai, is in the sanctuary! Psalms 68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, Thou hast led in procession a body of captives, Thou hast received gifts consisting of men, Yea even the rebellious, That, Yah, Elohim, might settle down to rest.

for his great works.

Psalms 68:19 Blessed be My Lord! Day by day, he beareth our burden for us, GOD himself, is our salvation. [Selah.] Psalms 68:20 The GOD we have, is a GOD of saving deeds, And, due to Yahweh, My Lord, are escapes from death. Psalms 68:21 Yea, God himself, will smite through the head of his foes,—The hairy crown of him that is marching on in his guilty deeds. Psalms 68:22 Said My Lord, From Bashan, will I bring back,—I will bring back from the depths of the sea: Psalms 68:23 That thou mayest bathe thy foot in blood,—The tongue of thy dogs, from the foes, hath its portion. Psalms 68:24 They have seen thy progress O God, The progress of my GOD, my king into the sanctuary: Psalms 68:25 In front are the singers, Behind are the harpers, In the midst of damsels playing on timbrels: Psalms 68:26 In the congregations, bless ye God, My Lord, from among the called of Israel: Psalms 68:27 There, is Benjamin, the Diminutive—ruling them, The princes of Judah—their throng, The princes of Zebulun, The princes of Naphtali. Psalms 68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength,—The strength, O God, which thou hast wrought for us. Psalms 68:29 Because of thy temple above Jerusalem, Unto thee, shall kings bear along a gift— Psalms 68:30 Rebuke thou, The wild beast of the reeds, The herd of mighty oxen among the calves of the peoples—Each one bowing down with bars of silver,—Scatter thou the peoples, who in wars take delight. Psalms 68:31 Ambassadors come out of Egypt, The Ethiopian, eagerly stretcheth out his hands, unto God. Psalms 68:32 Ye kingdoms of the earth, sing unto God, Praise in song Adonay. [Selah.] Psalms 68:33 Unto him that rideth upon the most ancient heavens, Lo! he uttereth his voice, a voice of strength. Psalms 68:34 Ascribe ye strength unto God,—Over Israel, is his majesty, And his strength, in the skies. To be revered is God, for his sanctuary,— Psalms 68:35 As for the GOD of Israel, he, is giving strength and abundant might to the people. Blessed be God!
