1 God will arise, and his enemies shall be

scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee

before him.

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

was weary.

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

dwell there.

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

in it.

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.
