1 Let God arise and let his enemies be scattered; ♦︎
let those that hate him flee before him.
2 As the smoke vanishes, so may they vanish away; ♦︎
as wax melts at the fire,
so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; ♦︎
let them make merry with gladness.
4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name;
exalt him who rides on the clouds. ♦︎
The Lord is his name; rejoice before him.
5 Father of the fatherless, defender of widows, ♦︎
God in his holy habitation!
6 God gives the solitary a home
and brings forth prisoners to songs of welcome, ♦︎
but the rebellious inhabit a burning desert.
19 God is for us the God of our salvation; ♦︎
God is the Lord who can deliver from death.
