¶ To the chanter, a Psalm and song of David.Let God arise, so shall his enemies be scattered, and they that hate him, shall flee before him. Like as the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away: and like as wax melteth at the fire, so shall the ungodly perish at the presence of God. But the righteous shall be glad and rejoice before God, they shall be merry and joyful. Oh sing unto God, sing praises to his name: magnify him that rideth above the heavens (whose name is the LORD) and rejoice before him. He is a father of the fatherless, he is a defender of widows: even God in his holy habitation. He is the God that maketh men to be of one mind in a house, and bringeth the prisoners out of captivity in due season, but letteth the runagates continue in scarceness.
¶ O God, when thou wentest forth before the people, when thou wentest thorow the wilderness. Selah: The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at the presence of God in Sinai, at the presence of God, which is the God of Israel. Thou, O God sendest a gracious rain, upon thine inheritance, and refreshest it, when it is dry. That thy beasts may dwell therein, which thou of thy goodness hast prepared for the poor. The Lord shall give the word, with great hosts of Evangelists. Kings with their armies shall flee, and they of the household shall divide the spoil. If so be that ye lie among the pales, the dove's feathers shall be covered with silver, and her wings the color of gold. When the Almighty setteth kings upon the earth, it shall be clear even in the darkness.
¶ The hill of Basan is God's hill, the hill of Basan is a plenteous hill. Why hop ye so, ye great hills? It pleaseth God to dwell upon this hill, yea the LORD will abide in it for ever. The chariots of God are many thousand times a thousand, the Lord is among them in the holy Sinai. Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts for men: yea even for thine enemies, that they might dwell with the LORD God. Praised be the Lord daily, even the God which helpeth us, and poureth his benefits upon us. Selah. The God that is our Saviour, even GOD the Lord by whom we escape death. The God that smiteth the enemies upon the heads and upon the hairy scalps: such as go on still in their wickedness.
¶ The Lord hath said: some will I bring away from Basan, some will I bring again from the deep of the sea. That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and that thy dogs may lick it up. It is well seen, O God, how thou goest, how thou my God and King goest in the Sanctuary. The singers go before, and then the minstrels among the maidens with the tumbrels. O give thanks unto God the LORDE in the congregation, for the wells of Israel. There little Benjamin, the princes of Iudah, the princes of Zabulon, and the princes of Nephtali bear rule among them. Thy God hath committed strength unto thee, stablish the thing, O God, that thou hast wrought in us. For thy temple's sake at Ierusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee. Reprove the beasts among the reeds, the heap of bulls with the calves: those that drive for money. Oh scatter the people that delight in battle. The princes shall come out of Egypt, the Morians land shall stretch out her hands unto God.
¶ Sing unto God, O ye kingdoms of the earth: O sing praises unto the Lord. Selah. Which setteth in the heavens over all from the beginning: Lo, he shall send out his voice, yea and that a mighty voice. Ascribe ye the power unto God, his glory is in Israel, and his might in the clouds. God is wonderful in his Sanctuary, he is the God of Israel, he will give strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
