Psalm 68
Douay-Rheims Bible

Let God's Enemies Be Scattered!

1{67:1}Unto the end, a psalm of a canticle for David himself. [2] Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered: and let them that hate him flee from before his face.

2{67:3}As smoke vanisheth, so let them vanish away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

3{67:4}And let the just feast, and rejoice before God: and be delighted with gladness.

4{67:5}Sing ye to God, sing a psalm to his name, make a way for him who ascendeth upon the west: the Lord is his name. Rejoice ye before him: but the wicked shall be troubled at his presence,

5{67:6}Who is the father of orphans, and the judge of widows. God in his holy place:

6{67:7}God who maketh men of one manner to dwell in a house: Who bringeth out them that were bound in strength; in like manner them that provoke, that dwell in sepulchres.

7{67:8}O God, when thou didst go forth in the sight of thy people, when thou didst pass through the desert:

8{67:9}The earth was moved, and the heavens dropped at the presence of the God of Sina, at the presence of the God of Israel.

9{67:10}Thou shalt set aside for thy inheritance a free rain, O God: and it was weakened, but thou hast made it perfect.

11{67:12}The Lord shall give the word to them that preach good tidings with great power.

12{67:13}The king of powers is of the beloved, of the beloved; and the beauty of the house shall divide spoils.

13{67:14}If you sleep among the midst of lots, you shall be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and the hinder parts of her back with the paleness of gold.

14{67:15}When he that is in heaven appointeth kings over her, they shall be whited with snow in Selmon.

15{67:16}The mountain of God is a fat mountain. A curdled mountain, a fat mountain.

16{67:17}Why suspect, ye curdled mountains? A mountain in which God is well pleased to dwell: for there the Lord shall dwell unto the end.

17{67:18}The chariot of God is attended by ten thousands; thousands of them that rejoice: the Lord is among them in Sina, in the holy place.

18{67:19}Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive; thou hast received gifts in men. Yea for those also that do not believe, the dwelling of the Lord God.

19{67:20}Blessed be the Lord day by day: the God of our salvation will make our journey prosperous to us.

20{67:21}Our God is the God of salvation: and of the Lord, of the Lord are the issues from death.

21{67:22}But God shall break the heads of his enemies: the hairy crown of them that walk on in their sins.

22{67:23}The Lord said: I will turn them from Basan, I will turn them into the depth of the sea:

23{67:24}That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thy enemies; the tongue of thy dogs be red with the same.

24{67:25}They have seen thy goings, O God, the goings of my God: of my king who is in his sanctuary.

25{67:26}Princes went before joined with singers, in the midst of young damsels playing on timbrels.

26{67:27}In the churches bless ye God the Lord, from the fountains of Israel.

27{67:28}There is Benjamin a youth, in ecstasy of mind. The princes of Juda are their leaders: the princes of Zabulon, the princes of Nephthali.

28{67:29}Command thy strength, O God confirm, O God, what thou hast wrought in us.

29{67:30}From thy temple in Jerusalem, kings shall offer presents to thee.

30{67:31}Rebuke the wild beasts of the reeds, the congregation of bulls with the kine of the people; who seek to exclude them who are tried with silver. Scatter thou the nations that delight in wars:

31{67:32}Ambassadors shall come out of Egypt: Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands to God.

32{67:33}Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth: sing ye to the Lord: Sing ye to God,

33{67:34}Who mounteth above the heaven of heavens, to the east. Behold he will give to his voice the voice of power:

34{67:35}Give ye glory to God for Israel, his magnificence, and his power is in the clouds.

35{67:36}God is wonderful in his saints: the God of Israel is he who will give power and strength to his people. Blessed be God.
