Psalm 68:1-3 Common English Bible (CEB)

Psalm 68

For the music leader. Of David. A psalm. A song.

68 Let God rise up;
    let his enemies scatter;
    let those who hate him
        run scared before him!
Like smoke is driven away,
        drive them away!
    Like wax melting before fire,
        let the wicked perish before God!
But let the righteous be glad
    and celebrate before God.
    Let them rejoice with gladness!

Psalm 68[a]

For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. A song.

May God arise, may his enemies be scattered;
    may his foes flee before him.
May you blow them away like smoke—

    may the wicked perish before God.
But may the righteous be glad
    and rejoice before God;
    may they be happy and joyful.
