Praised be the Lord daily, *
even the God who helps us and pours his benefits upon us.
He is our God, the God from whom salvation comes; *
God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.
God shall wound the head of his enemies, *
and the hairy scalp of those who persist in their wickedness.
The Lord has said, “I will bring back my people again, as I did from Bashan; *
my own will I bring back again, as I did before from the depths of the sea,
That your foot may be dipped in the blood of your enemies, *
and that the tongues of your dogs may be red with blood.”
Your solemn procession is seen, O God, *
how you go into the sanctuary, my God and King.
The singers go before, the musicians follow after; *
in the midst are the maidens playing the timbrels.
Give thanks unto God in the congregations, *
unto the Lord, the fountain of Israel.
There is little Benjamin their ruler, and the princes of Judah their counsel, *
the princes of Zebulon, and the princes of Naphtali.
O God, send forth your strength ; *
establish, O God, what you have wrought in us.
For your temple’s sake at Jerusalem *
kings shall bring presents unto you.
Rebuke the beasts that dwell among the reeds, *
a herd of bulls with their calves;
Rebuke the peoples who trample on those whom you have tried as silver, *
and scatter the peoples who delight in war.
Then shall they bring tribute out of Egypt; *
Ethiopia shall stretch out her hands unto God.
Sing unto God, O you kingdoms of the earth; *
O sing praises unto the Lord,
Unto God who sits in the heavens over all from the beginning; *
he sends out his voice, his mighty voice.
Ascribe power to God over Israel; *
his worship and strength are in the clouds.
O God, you are wonderful in your holy places; *
the God of Israel will give strength and power to his people. Blessed be God.
