1God shall arise, his enemies shall be 2scattered; and those who hate him shall flee before him!
As 3smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away; 4as wax melts before fire, so the wicked shall perish before God!
But 5the righteous shall be glad; they shall exult before God; they shall be jubilant with joy!
Sing to God, 6sing praises to his name; 7lift up a song to him who 8rides through 9the deserts; his name is 10the LORD; exult before him!
11Father of the fatherless and 12protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.
God 13settles the solitary in a home; he 14leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but 15the rebellious dwell in 16a parched land.
O God, when you 17went out before your people, 18when you marched through 19the wilderness, Selah
20the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain, before God, the One of Sinai, before God, the God of Israel.
21Rain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad; you restored your inheritance as it languished;
your flock found a dwelling in it; in your goodness, O God, you 22provided for the needy.
The Lord gives 23the word; 24the women who announce the news are a great host:
25"The kings of the armies--they flee, they flee!" The women at home 26divide the spoil--
though you men lie among 27the sheepfolds-- the wings of a dove covered with silver, its pinions with shimmering gold.
When the Almighty scatters kings there, let snow fall on 28Zalmon.
O mountain of God, mountain of Bashan; O many-peaked mountain, mountain of Bashan!
Why do you look with hatred, O many-peaked mountain, at the mount that God 29desired for his abode, yes, where the LORD will dwell forever?
30The chariots of God are twice ten thousand, thousands upon thousands; the Lord is among them; Sinai is now in the sanctuary.
31You ascended on high, 32leading a host of captives in your train and 33receiving gifts among men, even among 34the rebellious, 35that the LORD God may dwell there.
