Psalm 68. Exsurgat Deus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Thirteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. LET God arise, and let his enemies be scattered; *
    let them also that hate him flee before him.
  2. Like as the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away; *
    and like as wax melteth at the fire, so let the ungodly perish at the presence of God.
  3. But let the righteous be glad, and rejoice before God; *
    let them also be merry and joyful.
  4. O sing unto God, and sing praises unto his Name; magnify him that rideth upon the heavens; *
    praise him in his Name JAH, and rejoice before him.
  5. He is a Father of the fatherless, and defendeth the cause of the widows; *
    even God in his holy habitation.
  6. He is the God that maketh men to be of one mind in an house, and bringeth the prisoners out of captivity; *
    but letteth the runagates continue in scarceness.
  7. O God, when thou wentest forth before the people; *
    when thou wentest through the wilderness,
  8. The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at the presence of God; *
    even as Sinai also was moved at the presence of God, who is the God of Israel.
  9. Thou, O God, sentest a gracious rain upon thine inheritance, *
    and refreshedst it when it was weary.
  10. Thy congregation shall dwell therein; *
    for thou, O God, hast of thy goodness prepared for the poor.
  11. The Lord gave the word; *
    great was the company of women that bare the tidings.
  12. Kings with their armies did flee, and were discomfited, *
    and they of the household divided the spoil.
  13. Though ye have lain among the sheep-folds, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove *
    that is covered with silver wings, and her feathers like gold.
  14. When the Almighty scattered kings for their sake, *
    then were they as white as snow in Salmon.
  15. As the hill of Bashan, so is God's hill; *
    even an high hill, as the hill of Bashan.
  16. Why mock ye so, ye high hills? this is God's hill, in the which it pleaseth him to dwell; *
    yea, the Lord will abide in it for ever.
  17. The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels; *
    and the Lord is among them as in the holy place of Sinai.
  18. Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts from men; *
    yea, even from thine enemies, that the Lord God might dwell among them.
  19. Praised be the Lord daily, *
    even the God who helpeth us, and poureth his benefits upon us.
  20. He is our God, even the God of whom cometh salvation: *
    God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.
  21. God shall wound the head of his enemies, *
    and the hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his wickedness.
  22. The Lord hath said, I will bring my people again, as I did from Bashan; *
    mine own will I bring again, as I did sometime from the deep of the sea.
  23. That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, *
    and that the tongue of thy dogs may be red through the same.
  24. It is well seen, O God, how thou goest; *
    how thou, my God and King, goest in the sanctuary.
  25. The singers go before, the minstrels follow after, *
    in the midst of the damsels playing with the timbrels.
  26. Give thanks unto God the Lord in the congregation, *
    ye that are of the fountain of Israel.
  27. There is little Benjamin their ruler, and the princes of Judah their council; *
    the princes of Zebulon, and the princes of Naphthali.
  28. Thy God hath sent forth strength for thee; *
    stablish the thing, O God, that thou hast wrought in us,
  29. For thy temple's sake at Jerusalem; *
    so shall kings bring presents unto thee.
  30. Rebuke thou the dragon and the bull, with the leaders of the heathen, so that they humbly bring pieces of silver; *
    scatter thou the peoples that delight in war;
  31. Then shall the princes come out of Egypt; *
    the Morians' land shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
  32. Sing unto God, O ye kingdoms of the earth; *
    O sing praises unto the Lord;
  33. Who sitteth in the heavens over all, from the beginning: *
    lo, he doth send out his voice; yea, and that a mighty voice.
  34. Ascribe ye the power to God over Israel; *
    his worship and strength is in the clouds.
  35. O God, wonderful art thou in thy holy places: *
    even the God of Israel, he will give strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
