The God of Sinai and of the Sanctuary.

1 Let 1God arise, let His enemies be scattered, And let those who hate Him flee before * Him.
2 As 2smoke is driven away, so drive them away; As 3wax melts before * the fire, So let the 4wicked perish before * God.
3 But let the 5righteous be glad; let them exult before God; Yes, let them rejoice with gladness.
4 Sing to God, 6sing praises to His name; 7Lift up a song for Him who 8rides through the deserts, Whose 9name is the LORD, and exult before Him.
5 A 10father of the fatherless and a 11judge for the widows, Is God in His 12holy habitation.
6 God 13makes a home for the lonely; He 14leads out the prisoners into prosperity, Only 15the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
7 O God, when You 16went forth before Your people, When You 17marched through the wilderness, Selah.
8 The 18earth quaked; The 19heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God; 20Sinai itself quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 You 21shed abroad a plentiful rain, O God; You confirmed Your inheritance when it was parched.
10 Your creatures settled in it; You 22provided in Your goodness for the poor, O God.
11 The Lord gives the command; The 23women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host:
12 "24Kings of armies flee, they flee, And she who remains at home will 25divide the spoil!"
13 When you lie down 26among the sheepfolds, You are like the wings of a dove covered with silver, And its pinions with glistening gold.
14 When the Almighty 27scattered the kings there, It was snowing in 28Zalmon.
15 A 29mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan; A mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan.
16 Why do you look with envy, O mountains with many peaks, At the mountain which God has 30desired for His abode? Surely 31the LORD will dwell there forever.
17 The 32chariots of God are myriads, 33thousands upon thousands; The Lord is among them as at Sinai, in holiness.
18 You have 34ascended on high, You have 35led captive Your captives; You have received gifts among men, Even among the rebellious also, that the LORD God may dwell there.
19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily 36bears our burden, 37The God who is our salvation. Selah.
20 God is to us a 38God of deliverances; And 39to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.
21 Surely God will 40shatter the head of His enemies, The hairy crown of him who goes on in his guilty deeds.
22 The Lord said, "41I will bring them back from Bashan. I will bring them back from the depths of the sea;
23 That 42your foot may shatter them in blood, The tongue of your 43dogs may have its portion from your enemies."
24 They have seen 44Your procession, O God, The procession of my God, my King, 45into the sanctuary.
25 The 46singers went on, the musicians after them, In the midst of the 47maidens beating tambourines.
26 48Bless God in the congregations, Even the LORD, you who are of the 49fountain of Israel.
27 There is 50Benjamin, the youngest, ruling them, The princes of Judah in their throng, The princes of 51Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali.
28 Your God has 52commanded your strength; Show Yourself strong, O God, 53who have acted on our behalf.
29 Because of Your temple at Jerusalem 54Kings will bring gifts to You.
30 Rebuke the 55beasts in the reeds, The herd of 56bulls with the calves of the peoples, Trampling under foot the pieces of silver; He has 57scattered the peoples who delight in war.
31 Envoys will come out of 58Egypt; 59Ethiopia will quickly stretch out her hands to God.
32 Sing to God, O 60kingdoms of the earth, 61Sing praises to the Lord, Selah.
33 To Him who 62rides upon the 63highest heavens, which are from ancient times; Behold, 64He speaks forth with His voice, a 65mighty voice.
34 66Ascribe strength to God; His majesty is over Israel And 67His strength is in the skies.
35 O God, You are 68awesome from Your sanctuary. The God of Israel Himself 69gives strength and power to the people. 70Blessed be God!
