[a]God came from Teman,[b]
    the Holy One from Mount Paran.(A)
Selah

His glory covered the heavens,
    and his praise filled the earth;
    his splendor spread like the light.
He raised his horns high,(B)
    he rejoiced on the day of his strength.
Before him went pestilence,
    and plague[c] followed in his steps.
