Psalm 68:1-11 GNT

1 God rises up and scatters his enemies. Those who hate him run away in defeat.
2 As smoke is blown away, so he drives them off; as wax melts in front of the fire, so do the wicked perish in God's presence.
3 But the righteous are glad and rejoice in his presence; they are happy and shout for joy.
4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name; prepare a way for him who rides on the clouds. a His name is the Lord - be glad in his presence!
