For the End: A Canticle Psalm of David, 67.
(Psalm 68 - Hebrew Numbering)
Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.
As smoke vanisheth, so let them vanish; as wax melteth before the fire, so let sinners perish at the presence of God.
And let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice in the presence of God, let them delight in gladness.
Sing unto God, chant unto His name; prepare ye the way for Him that rideth upon the setting of the sun.
Lord is His name; yea, rejoice before Him. Let them be troubled at His presence, Who is a father of orphans and a judge to the widows.
God is in His holy place, God settleth the solitary in a house, Mightily leading forth them that were shackled, and likewise them that embitter Him, them that dwell in tombs. O God, when Thou wentest forth before Thy people, when Thou didst traverse the wilderness, The earth was shaken and the heavens dropped dew, at the presence of the God of Sinai, at the presence of the God of Israel.
A rain freely given shalt Thou ordain, O God, for Thine inheritance; yea, it became weak, but Thou shalt restore it.
Thy living creatures shall dwell therein; Thou hast prepared it in Thy goodness for the poor man, O God.
The Lord shall give speech with great power to them that bring good tidings.
He that is the King of the hosts of His beloved one shall divide the spoils for the beauty of the house.
Even if ye sleep among the lots, ye shall have the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her pinions of sparkling gold.
When He that is in the heavens ordaineth kings over her, they shall be made snow-white in Selmon.
The mountain of God is a butter mountain, a curdled mountain, a butter mountain.
Why suppose ye that there be other curdled mountains?
This is the mountain wherein God is pleased to dwell, yea, for the Lord will dwell therein to the end.
The chariot host of God is ten thousandfold, yea, thousands of them that abound in number; the Lord is among them at Sinai, in His holy place.
Thou hast ascended on high, Thou leddest captivity captive, Thou didst receive gifts among men (yea, for they were disobedient) that Thou mightest dwell there. Blessed is the Lord God, blessed is the Lord day by day; the God of our salvation shall prosper us along the way.
Our God is the God of salvation, and the pathways leading forth from death are those of the Lord's Lord.
But God shall crush the heads of His enemies, the hairy crown of them that continue in their trespasses.
The Lord said: I will return from Basan.
I will return in the deeps of the sea, That thy foot may be dipped in blood, yea, the tongue of thy dogs in that of thine enemies.
Thy processionals have been seen, O God, the processionals of my God, of my King Who is in His sanctuary.
Princes went before, and after them the chanters, in the midst of timbrel-playing maidens.
In congregations bless ye God, the Lord from the well-springs of Israel.
Yonder is Benjamin the younger in rapture, the princes of Judah their rulers, the princes of Zabulon, the princes of Nephthalim.
Give Thou command, O God, unto Thy hosts; strengthen, O God, this which Thou hast wrought in us.
Because of Thy temple in Jerusalem, kings shall bring gifts unto Thee.
Rebuke the wild beasts of the reed, that congregation of bulls among the heifers of the peoples, lest they exclude them that have been proved like silver.
Scatter the nations that desire wars; ambassadors shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall hasten to stretch out her hand unto God.
Ye kingdoms of the earth, sing unto God; chant ye unto the Lord, unto Him that rideth the heaven of heaven towards the dayspring.
Lo, He will utter with His voice a voice of power.
Give ye glory unto God; His magnificence is over Israel and His power is in the clouds.
Wondrous is God in His saints; the God of Israel, He will give power and strength unto His people.
Blessed is God.
