Psalm 68:6-8 Amplified Bible (AMP)


God makes a home for the lonely;
He leads the prisoners into prosperity,
Only the stubborn and rebellious dwell in a parched land.


O God, when You went out before Your people,
When You marched through the wilderness, Selah.

The earth trembled;
The heavens also poured down rain at the presence of God;
Sinai itself trembled at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

Psalm 68:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

God sets the lonely in families,[a]
    he leads out the prisoners with singing;
    but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

When you, God, went out before your people,
    when you marched through the wilderness,[b]
the earth shook, the heavens poured down rain,
    before God, the One of Sinai,
    before God, the God of Israel.
