Psalm 76

The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.

1 God is known in Judah; His name is great in Israel.
2 His tabernacle is in Salem; His dwelling place also is in Zion.
3 There He broke the flaming arrows, The shield and the sword and the weapons of war. Selah.
4 You are resplendent, More majestic than the mountains of prey.
5 The stouthearted were plundered, They sank into sleep; And none of the warriors could use his hands.
6 At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep.
7 You, even You, are to be feared; And who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?
8 You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; The earth feared and was still
9 When God arose to judgment, To save all the humble of the earth. Selah.
10 For the wrath of man shall praise You; With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself.
11 Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; Let all who are around Him bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.
12 He will cut off the spirit of princes; He is feared by the kings of the earth.
