Psalm 68:4-6 (JDV)

Psalm 68:4 Sing to God! Sing praises to his name. Exalt him who rides on the clouds – his name is Yah – and celebrate before him.
Psalm 68:5 God in his sacred dwelling is a father of the fatherless and a champion of widows.
Psalm 68:6 God provides homes for those who are abandoned. He leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious live in a scorched land.

Having established the future of the wicked, David now describes what God is doing for his poor prisoners. He describes God as ascending to the heights (18) and riding on the clouds (4). He sets free the captives, providing them prosperity and a home.

We should be singing this song even more so today, since we know that Christ ascended, and is providing us a prosperous eternal home, which he will give us when he returns to reign.

Lord, thank you for what you have provided for us today, and for the promise of eternal rest in our future.
