Psalm 68:1-18

1 God will arise. His enemies will be scattered. Those who hate him will flee from him.
2 Blow them away like smoke. Let wicked people melt in God's presence like wax next to a fire.
3 But let righteous people rejoice. Let them celebrate in God's presence. Let them overflow with joy.
4 Sing to God; make music to praise his name. Make a highway for him to ride through the deserts. The LORD is his name. Celebrate in his presence.
5 The God who is in his holy dwelling place is the father of the fatherless and the defender of widows.
6 God places lonely people in families. He leads prisoners out of prison into productive lives, but rebellious people must live in an unproductive land.
7 O God, when you went in front of your people, when you marched through the desert, Selah
8 the earth quaked and the sky poured in the presence of the God of Sinai, in the presence of the God of Israel.
9 You watered the land with plenty of rain, O God. You refreshed it when your land was exhausted.
10 Your flock settled there. Out of your goodness, O God, you provided for oppressed people.
11 The Lord gives instructions. The women who announce the good news are a large army.
12 [They say,] "The kings of the armies flee; they run away. The women who remained at home will divide the goods.
13 Though you stayed among the sheep pens, [you will be like] the wings of a dove covered with silver, its feathers with yellow gold.
14 Meanwhile, the Almighty was still scattering kings there like snow falling on Mount Zalmon."
15 The mountain of Bashan is the mountain of God. The mountain of Bashan is the mountain with many peaks.
16 Why do you look with envy, you mountains with many peaks, at the mountain where God has chosen to live? Certainly, the LORD will live there forever.
17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand in number, thousands upon thousands. The Lord is among them. [The God of] Sinai is in his holy place.
18 You went to the highest place. You took prisoners captive. You received gifts from people, even from rebellious people, so that the LORD God may live there.
