1[For the choirmaster Of David Psalm Song] Let God arise, let his enemies scatter, let his opponentsflee before him. 2You disperse them like smoke; as wax melts in the presence of a fire, so the wicked melt at thepresence of God. 3The upright rejoice in the presence of God, delighted and crying out for joy. 4Sing to God, play music to his name, build a road for the Rider of the Clouds, rejoice in Yahweh,dance before him. 5Father of orphans, defender of widows, such is God in his holy dwel ing. 6God gives the lonely a home to live in, leads prisoners out into prosperity, but rebels must live in thebare wastelands. 7God, when you set out at the head of your people, when you strode over the desert, 8the earth rocked,Pause the heavens pelted down rain at the presence of God, at the presence of God,the God of Israel. 9God, you rained down a shower of blessings, when your heritage was weary you gave it strength. 10Your family found a home, which you in your generosity provided for the humble. 11The Lord gave a command, the good news of a countless army. 12The chieftains of the army are in flight, in flight, and the fair one at home is sharing out the spoils. 13While you are at ease in the sheepfolds, the wings of the Dove are being covered with silver, and herfeathers with a sheen of green gold; 14when Shaddai scatters the chieftains, through her it snows on the Dark Mountain. 15A mountain of God, the mountain of Bashan! a haughty mountain, the mountain of Bashan! 16Why be envious, haughty mountains, of the mountain God has chosen for his dwel ing? There Godwil dwell for ever. 17The chariots of God are thousand upon thousand; God has come from Sinai to the sanctuary. 18You have climbed the heights, taken captives, you have taken men as tribute, even rebels thatYahweh God might have a dwelling-place. 19Blessed be the Lord day after day, he carries us along, God our Saviour.Pause 20This God of ours is a God who saves; from Lord Yahweh comes escape from death; 21but God smashes the head of his enemies, the long-haired skul of the prowling criminal. 22The Lord has said, 'I wil bring them back from Bashan, I wil bring them back from the depths of thesea, 23so that you may bathe your feet in blood, and the tongues of your dogs feast on your enemies.' 24Your processions, God, are for all to see, the processions of my God, of my king, to the sanctuary; 25singers ahead, musicians behind, in the middle come girls, beating their drums. 26In choirs they bless God, Yahweh, since the foundation of Israel. 27Benjamin was there, the youngest in front, the princes of Judah in bright-coloured robes, the princesof Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali. 28Take command, my God, as befits your power, the power, God, which you have wielded for us, 29from your temple high above Jerusalem. Kings wil come to you bearing tribute. 30Rebuke the Beast of the Reeds, that herd of bul s, that people of calves, who bow down with ingotsof silver. Scatter the people who delight in war. 31From Egypt nobles wil come, Ethiopia wil stretch out its hands to God. 32Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God, play for 33the Rider of the Heavens, the primeval heavens.Pause There he speaks, with a voice of power! 34Acknowledge the power of God. Over Israel his splendour, in the clouds his power. 35Awesome is God in his sanctuary. He, the God of Israel, gives strength and power to his people.Blessed be God.
