A Song of Triumph

68 For the Pure and Shining One
David’s poetic song of praise
God! Arise with awesome power,
and every one of your enemies will scatter in fear!
Chase them away—all these God-haters.
Blow them away as a puff of smoke.
Melt them away like wax in the fire.
One good look at you and the wicked vanish.
But let all your godly lovers be glad!
Yes, let them all rejoice in your presence
and be carried away with gladness.[a]
Let them laugh and be radiant with joy!
