Psalm 68

Praise and Thanksgiving

To the leader. Of David. A Psalm. A Song.
1 Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
   let those who hate him flee before him.
2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
   as wax melts before the fire,
   let the wicked perish before God.
3 But let the righteous be joyful;
   let them exult before God;
   let them be jubilant with joy.


4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name;
   lift up a song to him who rides upon the clouds*
his name is the Lord
   be exultant before him.


5 Father of orphans and protector of widows
   is God in his holy habitation.
6 God gives the desolate a home to live in;
   he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
   but the rebellious live in a parched land.


7 O God, when you went out before your people,
   when you marched through the wilderness,
          Selah
8 the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain
   at the presence of God, the God of Sinai,
   at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 Rain in abundance, O God, you showered abroad;
   you restored your heritage when it languished;
10 your flock found a dwelling in it;
   in your goodness, O God, you provided for the needy.


32 Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth;
   sing praises to the Lord,
          Selah
33 O rider in the heavens, the ancient heavens;
   listen, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice.
34 Ascribe power to God,
   whose majesty is over Israel;
   and whose power is in the skies.
35 Awesome is God in his* sanctuary,
   the God of Israel;
   he gives power and strength to his people.


Blessed be God!
