Praise and Thanksgiving
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song.
68 [a]Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered;
let those who hate him flee before him!
2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
as wax melts before fire,
let the wicked perish before God!
3 But let the righteous be joyful;
let them exult before God;
let them be jubilant with joy!
- 68 This is one of the most ancient compositions in the Psalter and has been influenced by Canaanite motifs and representations.
