The Passion Translation
A Song of Triumph
68 For the Pure and Shining One
David’s poetic song of praise
1 God! Arise with awesome power,
and every one of your enemies will scatter in fear!
2 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.
3 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!
- Psalm 68:3 As translated from the Septuagint. The Aramaic is “They rejoice in his sweetness.”
