Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the Lord— rejoice in his presence! Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy.
Sing to God, sing praises to his name; prepare a way for him who rides on the clouds. His name is the Lord—be glad in his presence! God, who lives in his sacred Temple, cares for orphans and protects widows.
[ A David Psalm ] Up with God! Down with his enemies! Adversaries, run for the hills! Gone like a puff of smoke, like a blob of wax in the fire— one look at God and the wicked vanish. When the righteous see God in action they’ll laugh, they’ll sing, they’ll laugh and sing for joy. Sing hymns to God; all heaven, sing out; clear the way for the coming of Cloud-Rider. Enjoy God, cheer when you see him! Father of orphans, champion of widows, is God in his holy house. God makes homes for the homeless, leads prisoners to freedom, but leaves rebels to rot in hell.
Be glad and sing songs of joy when you come soon God. The wicked disappear at his coming. When the godly see him in action they rejoice in joy and sing praise to him loud and clear for all to hear. He is the father to orphans and the fatherless, protects the widows, provides homes for the homeless and freedom to the prisoners.But leaves the rioters in the dark of hell. He does not atone the violence and ungodly though he shows favor to orphans and the god fearing. Be glad in his presence.
