Psalms 67

 1 Unto the end. A Canticle Psalm of David himself 2 May God rise up, and may his enemies be scattered, and may those who hate him flee from before his face 3 Just as smoke vanishes, so may they vanish. Just as wax flows away before the face of fire, so may sinners pass away before the face of God 4 And so, let the just feast, and let them exult in the sight of God and be delighted in gladness 5 Sing to God, sing a psalm to his name. Make a path for him, who ascends over the west. The Lord is his name. Exult in his sight; they will be stirred up before his face 6 the father of orphans and the judge of widows. God is in his holy place 7 It is God who makes men dwell in a house under one custom. He leads out those who are strongly bound, and similarly, those who exasperate, who dwell in sepulchers 8 O God, when you departed in the sight of your people, when you passed through the desert 9 the earth was moved, for the heavens rained down before the face of the God of Sinai, before the face of the God of Israel 10 You will set aside for your inheritance, O God, a willing rain. And though it was weak, truly, you have made it perfect 11 Your animals will dwell in it. O God, in your sweetness, you have provided for the poor 12 The Lord will give the word to evangelizers, along with great virtue 13 The King of virtue is beloved among the beloved. And the beauty of the house will divide spoils 14 If you take your rest in the midst of the clergy, you will be like a dove whose wings are covered with fine silver and edged with pale gold 15 When heaven discerns kings to be over her, they will be whitened with the snows of Zalmon 16 The mountain of God is a fat mountain, a dense mountain, a thick mountain 17 So then, why are you distrustful of dense mountains? The mountain on which God is well pleased to dwell, even there, the Lord will dwell until the end 18 The chariot of God is ten thousand fold: thousands rejoice. The Lord is with them in Sinai, in the holy place 19 You have ascended on high; you have taken captivity captive. You have accepted gifts among men. For even those who do not believe dwell with the Lord God 20 Blessed is the Lord, day after day. The God of our salvation will make our journey prosper for us 21 Our God is the God who will bring about our salvation, and our Lord is the Lord who has brought an end to death 22 So then, truly, God will break the heads of his enemies, the hairy skull of those who wander around in their offenses 23 The Lord said: I will turn them away from Bashan, I will turn them into the depths of the sea 24 so that your feet may be soaked in the blood of your enemies, so that the tongue of your dogs may be soaked with the same 25 O God, they have seen your arrival, the arrival of my God, of my king who is in a holy place 26 The leaders went ahead, united with the singers of psalms, in the midst of girls playing on timbrels 27 In the churches, bless the Lord God from the fountains of Israel 28 In that place, Benjamin is a youth in ecstasy of mind. The leaders of Judah are their governors: the leaders of Zebulun, the leaders of Naphtali 29 Command by your virtue, O God. Confirm in this place, O God, what you have wrought in us 30 Before your temple in Jerusalem, kings will offer gifts to you 31 Rebuke the wild beasts of the reeds, a congregation of bulls with the cows of the people, for they seek to exclude those who have been tested like silver. Scatter the nations that are pleased by wars 32 Ambassadors will come out of Egypt. Ethiopia will offer in advance her hands to God 33 Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth. Sing psalms to the Lord. Sing psalms to God 34 He ascends, up to the heaven of the heavens, toward the east. Behold, he will utter his voice, the voice of virtue 35 Give glory to God beyond Israel. His magnificence and his virtue is in the clouds 36 God is wonderful in his saints. The God of Israel himself will give virtue and strength to his people. Blessed is God
