Psalm 68
Brenton Septuagint Translation

Let God's Enemies Be Scattered!

1For the end, a Psalm of a Song by David. Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered; and let them that hate him flee from before him.

2As smoke vanishes, let them vanish: as wax melts before the fire, so let the sinners perish from before God.

3But let the righteous rejoice; let them exult before God: let them be delighted with joy.

4Sing to God, sing praises to his name: make a way for him that rides upon the west (the Lord is his name) and exult before him. They shall be troubled before the face of him,

5who is the father of the orphans, and judge of the widows: such is God in his holy place.

6God settles the solitary in a house; leading forth prisoners mightily, also them that act provokingly, even them that dwell in tombs.

7O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou wentest through the wilderness; Pause:

8the earth quaked, yea, the heavens dropped water at the presence of the God of Sina, at the presence of the God of Israel.

9O God, thou wilt grant to thine inheritance a gracious rain; for it was weary, but thou didst refresh it.

10Thy creatures dwell in it: thou hast in thy goodness prepared for the poor.

11The Lord God will give a word to them that preach it in a great company.

12The king of the forces of the beloved, of the beloved, will even grant them for the beauty of the house to divide the spoils.

13Even if ye should lie among the lots, ye shall have the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her breast with yellow gold.

14When the heavenly One scatters kings upon it, they shall be made snow-white in Selmon.

15The mountain of God is a rich mountain; a swelling mountain, a rich mountain.

16Wherefore do ye conceive evil, ye swelling mountains? this is the mountain which God has delighted to dwell in; yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.

17The chariots of God are ten thousand fold, thousands of rejoicing ones: the Lord is among them, in Sina, in the holy place.

18Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, thou hast received gifts for man, yea, for they were rebellious, that thou mightest dwell among them.

19Blessed be the Lord God, blessed be the Lord daily; and the God of our salvation shall prosper us. Pause.

20Our God is the God of salvation; and to the Lord belong the issues from death.

21But God shall crust the heads of his enemies; the hairy crown of them that go on in their trespasses.

22The Lord said, I will bring again from Basan, I will bring my people again through the depths of the sea.

23That thy foot may be dipped in blood, and the tongue of thy dogs be stained with that of thine enemies.

24Thy goings, O God, have been seen; the goings of my God, the king, in the sanctuary.

25The princes went first, next before the players on instruments, in the midst of damsels playing on timbrels.

26Praise God in the congregations, the Lord from the fountains of Israel.

27There is Benjamin the younger one in ecstasy, the princes of Juda their rulers, the princes of Zabulon, the princes of Nephthali.

28O God, command thou thy strength: strengthen, O God, this which thou hast wrought in us.

29Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents to thee.

30Rebuke the wild beasts of the reed: let the crowd of bulls with the heifers of the nations be rebuked, so that they who have been proved with silver may not be shut out: scatter thou the nations that wish for wars.

31Ambassadors shall arrive out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall hasten to stretch out her hand readily to God.

32Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth; sing psalms to the Lord. Pause.

33Sing to God that rides on the heaven of heaven, eastward: lo, he will utter a mighty sound with his voice.

34Give ye glory to God: his excellency is over Israel, and his power is in the clouds.

35God is wonderful in his holy places, the God of Israel: he will give power and strength to his people: blessed be God.
