Trivia: According to Psalm 68, what is God's name?



It won't break my head

A Psalm of David.

1Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

Listen to me, God, when I'm talking to you.

4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

Don't let me eat evil peoples' dainties.

5Let the righteous smite me it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.

6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.

7 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.

9 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.

Let righteous people smite me. [1]

It won't break my head.

10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.

Trap the wicked people in their own nets,

but let me escape.
