16 O mountains with many peaks, why do you look jealously
    at the mountain God desires for his home?
Indeed, the Lord will dwell there forever.
17 The chariots of God are twice ten thousand,
thousands upon thousands.
Among them the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary.[a]
18 You ascended on high. You led captivity captive.
You received gifts among men,
so that even among the rebellious the Lord[b] God might dwell.

  2. Psalm 68:18 The Hebrew uses the short form Yah rather than Yahweh, the full form of the divine name.
