68:2 As the driving away of smoke Thou drivest away, As the melting of wax before fire, The wicked perish at the presence of God.
68:3 And the righteous rejoice, they exult before God, And they joy with gladness.
68:4 Sing ye to God — praise His name, Raise up a highway for Him who is riding in deserts, In Jah [is] His name, and exult before Him.
68:5 Father of the fatherless, and judge of the widows, [Is] God in His holy habitation.
68:6 God — causing the lonely to dwell at home, Bringing out bound ones into prosperity, Only — the refractory have inhabited a dry place.
68:7 O God, in Thy going forth before Thy people, In Thy stepping through the wilderness, Selah.
68:8 The earth hath shaken, Yea, the heavens have dropped before God, This Sinai — before God, the God of Israel.
68:9 A shower of free-will gifts thou shakest out, O God. Thine inheritance, when it hath been weary, Thou hast established it.
68:10 Thy company have dwelt in it, Thou preparest in Thy goodness for the poor, O God.
68:11 The Lord doth give the saying, The female proclaimers [are] a numerous host.
68:12 Kings of hosts flee utterly away, And a female inhabitant of the house apportioneth spoil.
68:13 Though ye do lie between two boundaries, Wings of a dove covered with silver, And her pinions with yellow gold.
68:14 When the Mighty spreadeth kings in it, It doth snow in Salmon.
68:15 A hill of God [is] the hill of Bashan, A hill of heights [is] the hill of Bashan.
68:16 Why do ye envy, O high hills, The hill God hath desired for His seat? Jehovah also doth tabernacle for ever.
68:17 The chariots of God [are] myriads, thousands of changes, The Lord [is] among them, in Sinai, in the sanctuary.
68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, Thou hast taken captive captivity, Thou hast taken gifts for men, That even the refractory may rest, O Jah God.
68:19 Blessed [is] the Lord, day by day He layeth on us. God Himself [is] our salvation. Selah.
68:20 God Himself [is] to us a God for deliverances, And Jehovah Lord hath the outgoings of death.
68:21 Only — God doth smite The head of His enemies, The hairy crown of a habitual walker in his guilt.
68:22 The Lord said: `From Bashan I bring back, I bring back from the depths of the sea.
68:23 So that thou dashest thy foot in blood, [In the blood of] enemies — the tongue of Thy dogs.’
68:24 They have seen Thy goings, O God, Goings of my God, my king, in the sanctuary.
68:25 Singers have been before, Behind [are] players on instruments, In the midst virgins playing with timbrels.
68:26 In assemblies bless ye God, The Lord — from the fountain of Israel.
68:27 There [is] little Benjamin their ruler, Heads of Judah their defence, Heads of Zebulun — heads of Naphtali.
68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength, Be strong, O God, this Thou hast wrought for us.
