1 <<To the Overcomer, A Psalm [or] Song of David.>> Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered; let those that hate him flee before him.
2 As smoke is driven away; [so] drive [them] away: as wax melts before the fire, [so] shall the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But the righteous shall be glad; they shall rejoice before God; they shall dance with joy.
4 Sing unto God, sing psalms unto his name; extol him that rides upon the heavens by his name JAH and rejoice before him.
5 A father of the fatherless and a defender of the widows [is] God in his holy habitation.
6 God sets the solitary in families; he brings out those who are bound with chains, but the rebellious dwell in a dry [land].
7 O God, when thou didst go forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped [their rain] at the presence of God; [even] Sinai itself [was moved] at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, by which thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
10 Thy presence was in thy congregation; thou, O God, by thy goodness thou hast provided for the poor.
11 The Lord shall give [a] word; great [shall be] the host of the evangelists [thereof].
12 Kings of armies fled apace, and she that dwells in the house divided the spoil.
13 Though ye be cast among the pots, [yet shall ye be as] the wings of a dove covered with silver and her feathers with yellow gold.
14 When the Almighty scattered the kings [that were] in her, she became [white] as the snow in Salmon.
15 The mountain of Bashan [is] the mountain of God; the mountain of Bashan is a high [mountain].
16 Why leap ye, ye high mountains? [This is] the mountain [which] God desires to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell [in it] for ever.
17 The chariots of God [are] two thousand thousands of angels; the Lord [is] among them [as in] Sinai, in the sanctuary.
18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive; thou hast received gifts for men, [yea], [for] the rebellious also that the LORD God might dwell [among them].
19 Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily ladens us [with benefits], [even] the God of our saving health. Selah.
20 [He that is] our God [is] the God of salvation, and unto GOD the Lord [belongs] the way of escape from death.
21 Surely God shall smite the head of his enemies, [and] the hairy scalp of such a one as goes on still in his trespasses.
22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring [my people] again from the depths of the sea:
23 Thy foot shall be dipped in the blood of [thine] enemies [and] the tongue of thy dogs in the same.
24 They have seen thy ways, O God, [even] the ways of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
25 The singers went before, the players on instruments [followed] after; in between [them were] the virgins playing with timbrels.
26 Bless ye God in the congregations, [even] the Lord, ye of the lineage of Israel.
27 There [was] little Benjamin [as] their ruler, the princes of Judah [in] their congregation, the princes of Zebulun [and] the princes of Naphtali.
28 Thy God has commanded thy strength; confirm, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.
29 From thy temple in Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.
30 Reprehend the company of spearmen, the multitude of the strong, with the lords of the peoples, trampling them underfoot with [their] pieces of silver; Destroy thou the peoples [that] delight in war.
31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord Selah:
33 To him that rides upon the heavens of the heavens [which were] of old; behold, he shall send forth his voice, [his] mighty voice.
34 Ascribe ye strength unto God; his excellency [is] over Israel, and his strength [is] in the clouds.
35 O God, [thou art] terrible out of thy sanctuaries; the God of Israel [is] he that gives strength and power unto [his] people. Blessed [be] God.:
