You alone are to be feared.1 Who can stand2 before you when you are angry?38
From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared4 and was quiet--
when you, O God, rose up to judge,5 to save all the afflicted6 of the land. "Selah"
Surely your wrath against men brings you praise,7 and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.a11
Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them;8 let all the neighboring lands bring gifts9 to the One to be feared.
He breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
