1 Let God be seen, and let his haters be put to flight; let those who are against him be turned back before him.
Let them be like smoke before the driving wind; as wax turning soft before the fire, so let them come to an end before the power of God.
But let the upright be glad; let them have delight before God; let them be full of joy.
Make songs to God, make songs of praise to his name; make a way for him who comes through the waste lands; his name is Jah; be glad before him.
A father to those who have no father, a judge of the widows, is God in his holy place.
Those who are without friends, God puts in families; he makes free those who are in chains; but those who are turned away from him are given a dry land.
O God, when you went out before your people, wandering through the waste land; (Selah.)
The earth was shaking and the heavens were streaming, because God was present; even Sinai itself was moved before God, the God of Israel.
You, O God, did freely send the rain, giving strength to the weariness of your heritage.
Those whose resting-place was there, even the poor, were comforted by your good things, O God.
The Lord gives the word; great is the number of the women who make it public.
