Psalm 68:1 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

68 1 In this Psalm David setteth forth as in a glass the wonderful mercies of God toward his people: 5 Who by all means and most strange sorts declared himself to them. 15 And therefore God’s Church by reason of his promises, graces, and victories, doth excel without comparison all worldly things. 34 He exhorteth therefore all men to praise God forever.

To him that excelleth. A Psalm or song of David.

God [a]will arise, and his enemies shall be scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee before him.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 68:1 The Prophet showeth that albeit God suffereth the wicked tyrants to oppress his Church for a time, yet at length he will be revenged of them.
