When you went up to the heights, you led a parade of captives. You received gifts from the people, even from those who ·turned [rebelled] against you [2 Cor. 2:14; Eph. 4:8]. And the Lord God will live there.
The chariots of God, twice ten thousand, and thousands more besides, The Lord in the lead, riding down Sinai— straight to the Holy Place! You climbed to the High Place, captives in tow, your arms full of booty from rebels, And now you sit there in state, God, sovereign God!
When You ascended the sacred mountain, with Your prisoners in tow, Your captives in chains, You sat in triumph receiving gifts from men, Even from those who rebel against You, so that You, the Eternal God, might take up residence there.
Thou ascendedest on high, thou tookest captivity (captive); thou receivedest gifts among men. For why thou tookest (also from) them that believed not; for to dwell in the Lord God. (Thou ascendedest on high, thou tookest the captivity captive; thou receivedest gifts, or tribute, from people. But thou also receivedest gifts from those who believed not/from those who were rebellious; so that the Lord God might live among them.)
