I love how the Psalms sing of days long before they were written. They echo down the words of God and the history of Israel. This morning I started reading Psalm 68:

"Let God arise,
Let His enemies be scattered;
Let those also who hate Him flee before Him..."

[Around 1300 BC] So they departed from the mountain of the LORD on a journey of three days; and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them for three days' journey, to search out a resting place for them. And the cloud of the LORD was above them by day when they went out from the camp. So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said:

"Rise up, O LORD!
Let Your enemies be scattered,
And let those who hate You, flee before You."
-Numbers 10:33-35

Also, in Psalm 67:

"God be merciful to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us (selah),
That Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations."

[Around 1300 BC] And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, 'This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:

"The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace."
-Numbers 6:22-26
