Psalm 68:15-20


A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan;
A [high] mountain of many summits is Mount Bashan [rising east of the Jordan].

Why do you look with envy, mountains with many peaks,
At the mountain [of the city of Zion] which God has desired for His dwelling place?
Yes, the Lord will dwell there forever.

The chariots of God are [a]myriads, thousands upon thousands;
The Lord is among them as He was at Sinai, in holiness.

You have ascended on high, You have led away captive Your captives;
You have received gifts among men,
Even from the rebellious also, that the Lord God may dwell there.


Blessed be the Lord, who bears our burden day by day,
The God who is our salvation! Selah.

God is to us a God of acts of salvation;
And to [b]God the Lord belong escapes from death [setting us free].
