2 May God rise up, and may his enemies be scattered, and may those who hate him flee from before his face.
3 Just as smoke vanishes, so may they vanish. Just as wax flows away before the face of fire, so may sinners pass away before the face of God.
4 And so, let the just feast, and let them exult in the sight of God and be delighted in gladness.
5 Sing to God, sing a psalm to his name. Make a path for him, who ascends over the west. The Lord is his name. Exult in his sight; they will be stirred up before his face,
6 the father of orphans and the judge of widows. God is in his holy place.
7 It is God who makes men dwell in a house under one custom. He leads out those who are strongly bound, and similarly, those who exasperate, who dwell in sepulchers.
