A father to the fatherless,1 a defender of widows,2 is God in his holy dwelling.36
God sets the lonely4 in families,a5 he leads forth the prisoners6 with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.77
When you went out8 before your people, O God, when you marched through the wasteland,9 "Selah"
the earth shook,10 the heavens poured down rain,11 before God, the One of Sinai,12 before God, the God of Israel.139
You gave abundant showers,14 O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.
Your people settled in it, and from your bounty,15 O God, you provided16 for the poor.
The Lord announced the word, and great was the company17 of those who proclaimed it:
"Kings and armies flee18 in haste; in the camps men divide the plunder.1913
Even while you sleep among the campfires,b20 the wings of [my] dove are sheathed with silver, its feathers with shining gold."
When the Almightyc scattered21 the kings in the land, it was like snow fallen on Zalmon.2215
The mountains of Bashan23 are majestic mountains;24 rugged are the mountains of Bashan.
