68 1 In this Psalm David setteth forth as in a glass the wonderful mercies of God toward his people: 5 Who by all means and most strange sorts declared himself to them. 15 And therefore God’s Church by reason of his promises, graces, and victories, doth excel without comparison all worldly things. 34 He exhorteth therefore all men to praise God forever.

To him that excelleth. A Psalm or song of David.

God [a]will arise, and his enemies shall be scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee before him.

As the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away: and as wax melteth before the fire, so shall the wicked perish at the presence of God.

[b]But the righteous shall be glad, and rejoice before God: yea, they shall leap for joy.
