1 God will arise, and his enemies shall be
scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee
2 As the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou
drive them away: and as wax melteth before
the fire, so shall the wicked perish at the
presence of God.
3 But the righteous shall be glad, and rejoice
before God: yea, they shall leap for joy.
4 Sing unto God, and sing praises unto his name:
exalt him that rideth upon the heavens, in his Name
Jah, and rejoice before him.
5 He is a Father of the fatherless, and a Judge of
the widows, even God in his holy habitation.
6 God maketh the solitary to dwell in families,
and delivereth them that were prisoners in stocks:
but the rebellious shall dwell in a dry land.
7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy
people: when thou wentest through the wilderness,
8 The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at
the presence of this God: even Sinai was moved at
the presence of God, even the God of Israel.
9 Thou, O God, sentest a gracious rain upon
thine inheritance, and thou didst refresh it when it
10 Thy Congregation dwelled therein: for thou,
O God, hast of thy goodness prepared it for the
11 The Lord gave matter to the women to tell of
the great army.
12 Kings of the armies did flee: they did flee, and
she that remained in the house, divided the spoil.
13 Though ye have lain among pots, yet shall ye
be as the wings of a dove that is covered with silver,
and whose feathers are like yellow gold.
14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it
was white as the snow in Zalmon.
15 The mountain of God is like the mountain of
Bashan: it is an high mountain, as mount Bashan.
16 Why leap ye, ye high mountains? as for this
Mountain, God delighteth to dwell in it: yea, the
Lord will dwell in it forever.
17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand
thousand Angels, and the Lord is among them, as
in the Sanctuary of Sinai.
18 Thou art gone up on high: thou hast led captivity
captive, and received gifts for men: yea, even the
rebellious hast thou led, that the Lord God might
19 Praised be the Lord, even the God of our salvation,
which ladeth us daily with benefits. Selah.
20 This is our God, even the God that saveth us:
and to the Lord God belong the issues of death.
21 Surely God will wound the head of his enemies,
and the hairy pate of him that walketh in his sins.
22 The Lord hath said, I will bring my people
again from Bashan: I will bring them again from
the depths of the Sea:
23 That thy foot may be dipped in blood, and the
tongue of thy dogs in the blood of the enemies, even
24 They have seen, O God, thy goings, the
goings of my God, and my king, which art in the
25 The singers went before, the players of instruments
after: in the midst were the maids playing with
26 Praise ye God in the assemblies, and the Lord,
ye that are of the fountain of Israel.
27 There was little Benjamin with their ruler, and
the Princes of Judah with their assembly, the princes
of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
28 Thy God hath appointed thy strength: establish,
O God, that which thou first wrought in us,
29 Out of thy Temple upon Jerusalem, and kings
shall bring presents unto thee.
30 Destroy the company of the spearmen, and
multitude of the mighty bulls with the calves of the
people, that tread under feet pieces of silver: scatter
the people that delight in war.
31 Then shall the princes come out of Egypt:
Ethiopia shall haste to stretch her hands unto God.
32 Sing unto God, O ye kingdoms of the earth:
sing praise unto the Lord, (Selah)
33 To him that rideth upon the most high heavens,
which were from the beginning: behold, he will send
out by his voice a mighty sound.
34 Ascribe the power to God: for his majesty is
upon Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.
35 O God, thou art terrible out of thine holy
places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength
and power unto the people: praised be God.
