Sing to God, sing praise to his name,1 extol him who rides on the cloudsa2-- his name is the LORD 3-- and rejoice before him.
A father to the fatherless,4 a defender of widows,5 is God in his holy dwelling.66
God sets the lonely7 in families,b8 he leads forth the prisoners9 with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.107
When you went out11 before your people, O God, when you marched through the wasteland,12 "Selah"
the earth shook,13 the heavens poured down rain,14 before God, the One of Sinai,15 before God, the God of Israel.169
You gave abundant showers,17 O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.
Your people settled in it, and from your bounty,18 O God, you provided19 for the poor.
The Lord announced the word, and great was the company20 of those who proclaimed it:
"Kings and armies flee21 in haste; in the camps men divide the plunder.2213
Even while you sleep among the campfires,c23 the wings of [my] dove are sheathed with silver, its feathers with shining gold."
When the Almightyd scattered24 the kings in the land, it was like snow fallen on Zalmon.25
