For the choir director. A Davidic psalm. A song.God arises. His enemies scatter,
and those who hate Him flee from His presence.
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord shines over you.
Rise up, Lord, come to Your resting place,
You and Your powerful ark.
Whenever the ark set out, Moses would say:Arise, Lord!
Let Your enemies be scattered,
and those who hate You flee from Your presence.
Rise up, Lord!
Save me, my God!
You strike all my enemies on the cheek;
You break the teeth of the wicked.
Rise up, Lord, in Your anger;
lift Yourself up against the fury of my adversaries;
awake for me;
You have ordained a judgment.
Rise up, Lord! Do not let man prevail;
let the nations be judged in Your presence.
Rise up, Lord God! Lift up Your hand.
Do not forget the afflicted.
Rise up, Lord!
Confront him; bring him down.
With Your sword, save me from the wicked.
Rise up! Help us!
Redeem us because of Your faithful love.
Rise up, God, defend Your cause!
Remember the insults
that fools bring against You all day long.
Rise up, God, judge the earth,
for all the nations belong to You.
Rise up, Judge of the earth;
repay the proud what they deserve.
The Spirit then lifted me up, and I heard a great rumbling sound behind me—praise the glory of the Lord in His place!—
You will rise up and have compassion on Zion,
for it is time to show favor to her—
the appointed time has come.
“Because of the oppression of the afflicted
and the groaning of the poor,
I will now rise up,” says the Lord.
“I will put the one who longs for it in a safe place.”
“Now I will rise up,” says the Lord.
“Now I will lift Myself up.
Now I will be exalted.
God ascends among shouts of joy,
the Lord, among the sound of trumpets.
But He also is wise and brings disaster.
He does not go back on what He says;
He will rise up against the house of wicked men
and against the allies of evildoers.
For the Lord will rise up as He did at Mount Perazim.
He will rise in wrath, as at the Valley of Gibeon,
to do His work, His strange work,
and to perform His task, His disturbing task.
The glory of the Lord rose up from within the city and stood on the mountain east of the city.
When He finished talking with him, God withdrew from Abraham.
Then God withdrew from him at the place where He had spoken to him.
