Psalm 68:6-8 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

God gives the lonely a home.
    He leads prisoners out with joy.
    But those who turn against God will live in a dry land.

God, you led your people out.
    You marched through the desert. Selah
The ground shook,
    and the sky poured down rain
before God, the God of Mount Sinai,
    before 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.
