The Chariots of God

 



The mountains of Bashan are majestic 
mountains; rugged are the mountains of 
Bashan.  

Why gaze in envy, O rugged 
mountains at the mountain where God
chooses to reign, where the LORD himself 
will dwell forever?

The chariots of God are tens of thousands
and thousands of thousands;  the LORD
has come from Sinai into his sanctuary.

When you ascended on high, you led
captives in your train; you received gifts 
from men, even from the rebellious--
that you, O LORD of God,
might dwell there.

Psalm 68:15-18 NIV

Matthew Henry said of this passage that "'Angels are the chariots of God; his chariots of war, which he makes use of against his enemies, his chariots of conveyance, which he sends for his friends as he did for Elijah...his chariots of state, in the midst of which he shows his glory and power.  they are vastly numerous:  "Twenty thousands; even thousands multiplied."
