Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered,
And let those who hate Him flee from
before His face.
As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish;
As wax melts before the fire,
So let the sinners perish from the face
And let the righteous be glad;
Let them greatly rejoice before God;
Let them be glad with merriment.
Sing to God, sing to His name;
Make ready the way for Him
Who rides upon the sunset;
His name is The Lord;
And greatly rejoice before Him.
Let them be troubled before His face,
He who is the father of orphans, and
the judge of widows;
God is in His holy place.

Your creatures are dwelling in it;
In Your goodness, O God, You provide
for the poor.
The Lord will give His word
To those proclaiming the gospel with
He who is the King of hosts of the

beauty of the house.
If you fall asleep in the midst of your
You will have the wings of a dove all
covered with silver,
and her back with yellow gold.
When the heavenly One appoints
kings over it,
They shall become white as the
snow in Zalmon.
The mountain of God is a fertile
A mountain richly curdled with milk, a

richly curdled with
This is the mountain God consented to
Truly, the Lord will lodge in it to the

Thousands abounding in numbers;
The Lord is among them at Sinai, in
the holy place.
You ascended on high, You led
You received gifts for mankind,
Truly for the disobedient, so they may
The Lord God is blessed;
Blessed is the Lord from day to day;
The God of our salvation will bring
prosperity upon us.

The hairy head of those who continue
in their transgressions.
The Lord said, "I will return from

The tongue of your dogs in the blood
of your enemies."
Your processionals were seen, O God,
The processionals of my God, and my
King in His holy place.
The rulers drew near, singers followed
In the midst of them came young
maidens playing timbrels.
Bless God in the churches,
The Lord from the fountains of Israel.
There is the young Benjamin in ecstasy;
The rulers of Judea are their leaders,
The rulers of Zubulun and Nephthali.
Give command, O God; to your power;
Strengthen, O God, what You
accomplished in us.
Because of Your temple at Jerusalem,
Kings will bring gifts to You.

Ambassadors shall come out of Egypt;
Ethiopia shall draw near to stretch out
her hands to God.
Sing to God, you kingdoms of the
earth, sing to the Lord.
Sing to God who rides upon the
heaven of heavens towards the
Behold, He will speak with His voice,
a voice of power.

His magnificence is over Israel,
And His power is in the clouds.
God is wonderous in His saints;
the God of Israel shall give power
and strength to His people.
Blessed is God.
