Why does the spelling look unusual?
[To the chiefe Musician. A Psalme or song of Dauid.] Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him, flee before him.
As smoke is driuen away, so driue them away: as waxe melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
But let the righteous be glad: let them reioyce before God, yea let them exceedingly reioyce.
Sing vnto God, sing praises to his Name: extoll him that rideth vpon the heauens, by his Name Iah, and reioyce before him.
A father of the fatherlesse, and a iudge of the widowes, is God in his holy habitation.
God setteth the solitary in a families: hee bringeth out those which are bound with chaines, but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people; when thou didst march through the wildernes, Selah.
The earth shooke, the heauens also dropped at the presence of God: euen Sinai it selfe was mooued at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
Thou, O God, didst send a plentifull raine, whereby thou didst confirme thine inheritance, when it was weary.
Thy Congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodnesse for the poore.
The Lord gaue the word: great was the company of those that published it.
Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that taried at home, diuided the spoile.
Though ye haue lien among the pots, yet shall yee bee as the wings of a doue, couered with siluer, and her feathers with yellow gold.
When the Almighty scattered Kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.
The hil of God is as the hill of Bashan, an high hill as the hill of Bashan.
Why leape ye, ye high hilles? this is the Hil which God desireth to dwell in, yea the Lord will dwel in it for euer.
The chariots of God are twentie thousand, euen thousands of Angels: the Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the holy place.
Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast ledde captiuitie captiue, thou hast receiued giftes for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth vs with benefits, euen the God of our saluation. Selah.
Hee that is our God, is the God of saluation; and vnto God the Lord belong the issues from death.
But God shall wound the head of his enemies: and the hairy scalpe of such a one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
The Lord said, I will bring againe from Bashan, I will bring my people againe from the depthes of the sea:
That thy foote may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogges in the same.
They haue seene thy goings, O God, euen the goings of my God, my King, in the Sanctuarie.
The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; amongst them were the damosels playing with timbrels.
Blesse yee God, in the Congregations, euen the Lord, from the fountaine of Israel.
There is little Beniamin with their ruler, the princes of Iudah and their Councill, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for vs.
Because of thy Temple at Ierusalem, shall kings bring presents vnto thee.
Rebuke the company of spearemen, the multitude of the bulles, with the calues of the people, till euery one submit himselfe with pieces of siluer: scatter thou the people that delite in warre.
Princes shall come out of Egypt, Ethiopia shall soone stretch out her hands vnto God.
Sing vnto God, yee kingdomes of the earth: O sing praises vnto the Lord, Selah:
To him that rideth vpon the heauens of heauens, which were of olde: loe, hee doeth send out his voice, and that a mightie voice.
Ascribe yee strength vnto God: his excellencie is ouer Israel, and his strength is in the cloudes.
O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giueth strength, and power vnto his people: blessed be God.

Ivory Dorsey's Psalms Chapter 68 comment about verse 1 on 6/13/2013, 7:30am...
It is a very powerful verse that issues a command to us to allow God to get between us and Satan. I believe when any person internalizes this verse and actively think it; if Satan is in the midst, in their heart, or in their mind, he will recieve this command and he will flee. "Let God Arise and His enemies be scattered. And let those who hate Him flee before Him..." Peace replaces Pain..

I love reading the psalms. i just started reading the bible and it's giving me a connection with God. Every night I have decided that if i wanted to get close to God than I must learn his word to understand him. I'm so glad that I know God for myself. God bless you.

Praise be to God for his wonderful love, for he loads us every day and thank him for seeing another bright day this is one of the greatest blessings I always receive from God.

This comment is to Jacob K. Jacob, There are many voices in this world and many religions; but, there is only one truth and HIS NAME IS JESUS! The angel declared His Name before His fleshly body of His habitation was born. The angel said ye shall call His Name Jesus, he shall save His people from their sins. The God of Glory took on flesh to save all who will come to Him. He was crucified, dead and buried; BUT, HE AROSE and continually lives. The instructions for eternal life are given to us in Acts 2:37,38. REPENT (ask forgiveness of sins, and turn from them), BE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS AND YE SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY GHOST. GOD IS WAITING ON YOU, JACOB. There is only ONE God and His Name is JESUS. Praying for you.

Charlie's Psalms Chapter 68 comment on 3/05/2012, 11:50pm...
Why do you have God name in verse as Jah. First and foremost there is no J letter in hebrew. And my father name in heaven is Yah and his son name is not Jesus its Yahoshua
Please can you explain? Thanks
