Psalm 68

Exurgat Deus
Praised be the Lord daily *
even the God who helpeth us, and poureth his benefits upon us.
He is our God, even the God of whom cometh salvation *
God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.
God shall wound the head of his enemies *
and the hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his wickedness.
The Lord hath said, I will bring my people again, as I did from Basan *
mine own will I bring again, as I did sometime from the deep of the sea.
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.
It is well seen, O God, how thou goest *
how thou, my God and King, goest in the sanctuary.
The singers go before, the minstrels follow after *
in the midst are the damsels playing with the timbrels.
Give thanks, O Israel, unto God the Lord in the congregations *
from the ground of the heart.
There is little Benjamin their ruler, and the princes of Judah their counsel *
the princes of Zabulon, and the princes of Nephthali.
Thy God hath sent forth strength for thee *
stablish the thing, O God, that thou hast wrought in us,
For thy temple’s sake at Jerusalem *
so shall kings bring presents unto thee.
When the company of the spear-men, and multitude of the mighty are scattered abroad among the beasts of the people, so that they humbly bring pieces of silver *
and when he hath scattered the people that delight in war;
Then shall the princes come out of Eqypt *
the Morians’ land shall soon stretch our her hands unto God.
Sing unto God, O ye kingdoms of the earth *
O sing praises unto the Lord;
Who sitteth in the heavens over all from the beginning *
lo, he doth send out his voice, yea, and that a mighty voice.
Ascribe ye the power to God over Israel *
his worship and strength is in the clouds.
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.
