Psalm 68:1–10

1God shall arise, his enemies shall be | scattered;*

and those who hate him shall flee be- | fore him!

2As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive | them away;*

as wax melts before fire,

so the wicked shall perish be- | fore God!

3But the righteous shall be glad;

they shall exult be- | fore God;*

they shall be jubilant | with joy!

4Sing to God, sing praises | to his name;*

lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;

his name is the LORD;

exult be- | fore him!

5Father of the fatherless and protector of | widows*

is God in his holy habi- | tation.

6God settles the solitary in a home;

he leads out the prisoners to pros- | perity,*

but the rebellious dwell in a | parched land.

7O God, when you went out before your | people,*

when you marched through the | wilderness,

8the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,

before God, the One of | Sinai,*

before God, the God of | Israel.

9Rain in abundance, O God, you | shed abroad;*

you restored your inheritance as it | languished;

10your flock found a dwell- | ing in it;*

in your goodness, O God, you provided for the | needy.
