Acts 1:11; Psalm 47:5; Psalm 103:19 [Latin]

11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

God ascended in hearty song; and the Lord in the voice of a trump. (God ascended with a hearty song; the Lord went up with the sound of trumpets.)
