Psalm 68 rehearses the history of God’s interventions on the part of His people. It demonstrates that God is always on the move — creating, walking, sending, calling, commanding, defending, and defeating. During their wilderness wandering, God led Israel through the wilderness and defeated all enemies who stood in their path. According to the superscription, David is the author. As such, the likely writing of this Hymn of Victory is either the conquering of Jerusalem (2 Samuel 5) or moving the Ark to Zion (2 Samuel 6). Uniquely Paul applied Psalm 68:18 to Jesus’ Ascension in Ephesians 4:8. Jesus’ Ascension is the greatest victory parade in human history. It declares that Jesus was victorious over Satan, sin, and death. Because He is victorious, His people too will be victorious!
