Let the wicked perish in the presence of God.H6227H5086H5086H1749H4549H6440H784H7563H6H6440H430 3But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God’s presence. Let them be filled with joy.H6662H8055H5970H6440H430H8057H7797 4Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the Lord—rejoice in his presence!H7891H430H2167H8034H5549H7392H6160H8034H3050H5937H6440 5Father to the fatherless, defender of widows—this is God, whose dwelling is holy.H1H3490H1781H490H430H6944H4583 6God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy. But he makes the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.H430H3427H3173H1004H3318H615H3574H5637H7931H6707 7O God, when you led your people out from Egypt, when you marched through the dry wasteland, InterludeH430H3318H6440H5971H6805H3452H5542 8the earth trembled, and the heavens poured down rain before you, the God of Sinai, before God, the God of Israel.H776H7493H8064H5197H6440H430H5514H2088H6440H430H430H3478 9You sent abundant rain, O God, to refresh the weary land.H430H5130H5071H1653H3559H5159H3811 10There your people finally settled, and with a bountiful harvest, O God, you provided for your needy people.H2416H3427H430H3559H2896H6041 11The Lord gives the word, and a great army brings the good news.H136H5414H562H7227H6635H1319 12Enemy kings and their armies flee, while the women of Israel divide the plunder.H4428H6635H5074H5074H5116H1004H2505H7998 13Even those who lived among the sheepfolds found treasures—doves with wings of silver and feathers of gold.H7901H8240H3671H3123H2645H3701H84H3422H2742 14The Almighty scattered the enemy kings like a blowing snowstorm on Mount Zalmon.H7706H6566H4428H7949H6756 15The mountains of Bashan are majestic, with many peaks stretching high into the sky.H2022H430H2022H1316H1386H2022H2022H1316 16Why do you look with envy, O rugged mountains, at Mount Zion, where God has chosen to live, where the Lord himself will live forever?H7520H1386H2022H2022H430H2530H3427H3068H7931H5331 17Surrounded by unnumbered thousands of chariots, the Lord came from Mount Sinai into his sanctuary.H7393H430H7239H505H8136H136H5514H6944 18When you ascended to the heights, you led a crowd of captives. You received gifts from the people, even from those who rebelled against you. Now the Lord God will live among us there.H5927H4791H7628H7617H3947H4979H120H5637H3050H430H7931 19Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. InterludeH1288H136H3117H3117H6006H410H3444H5542 20Our God is a God who saves! The Sovereign Lord rescues us from death.H410H410H4190H3069H136H8444H4194 21But God will smash the heads of his enemies, crushing the skulls of those who love their guilty ways.H430H4272H7218H341H8181H6936H1980H817 22The Lord says, “I will bring my enemies down from Bashan; I will bring them up from the depths of the sea.H136H559H7725H1316H7725H4688H3220 23You, my people, will wash your feet in their blood, and even your dogs will get their share!”H7272H4272H1818H341H3956H3611 24Your procession has come into view, O God—the procession of my God and King as he goes into the sanctuary.H7200H1979H430H1979H410H4428H6944 25Singers are in front, musicians behind; between them are young women playing tambourines.H7891H6923H5059H310H8432H5959H8608 26Praise God, all you people of Israel; praise the Lord, the source of Israel’s life.H1288H430H4721H136H4726H3478 27Look, the little tribe of Benjamin leads the way. Then comes a great throng of rulers from Judah and all the rulers of Zebulun and Naphtali.H6810H1144H7287H8269H3063H7277H8269H2074H8269H5321 28Summon your might, O God. Display your power, O God, as you have in the past.H430H6680H5797H5810H430H2098H6466 29The kings of the earth are bringing tribute to your Temple in Jerusalem.H1964H3389H4428H2986H7862 30Rebuke these enemy nations—these wild animals lurking in the reeds, this herd of bulls among the weaker calves. Make them bring bars of silver in humble tribute. Scatter the nations that delight in war.H1605H2416H7070H5712H47H5695H5971H7511H7518H3701H967H5971H2654H7128 31Let Egypt come with gifts of precious metals; let Ethiopia bow in submission to God.H2831H857H4714H3568H7323H3027H430 32Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth. Sing praises to the Lord. InterludeH7891H430H4467H776H2167H136H5542 33Sing to the one who rides across the ancient heavens, his mighty voice thundering from the sky.H7392H8064H8064H6924H5414H6963H5797H6963 34Tell everyone about God’s power. His majesty shines down on Israel; his strength is mighty in the heavens.H5414H5797H430H1346H3478H5797H7834 35God is awesome in his sanctuary. The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!H430H3372H4720H410H3478H5414H5797H8592H5971H1288H430
