Psalm 68 builds to a resounding climax of praise, piling up references and allusions to God’s many deliverances into a many-peaked mountain of testimonies of God’s faithfulness. David’s opening hope that God will arise rests on a sure foundation of past protection and love. When verse 18 is quoted in Ephesians, referring to Christ, we see that God did indeed arise to give power and strength to His people, bringing salvation and deliverance from death. And so as we come to worship today, we join with David and all the kingdoms of the earth to ascribe power to God as we exult and sing His praises.
