Praise to God for His Rescue of Israel

1 God [is] known in Judah. His name [is] great in Israel.
2 His den has been in Salem, his lair in Zion.
3 There he broke [the] flames of [the] bow, [the] shield and sword and battle. Selah
4 Radiant you [are], majestic, from [the] mountains of prey.
5 [The] stouthearted are plundered; they sleep their sleep, and all [the] able men cannot {use} their hands.
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse slumber.
7 {You, indeed, are to be feared}, and who can stand before you when you [are] angry?
8 From heaven you proclaimed judgment. [The] earth feared and was still
9 when God rose for justice, to save all [the] afflicted of [the] land. Selah
10 For the anger of humankind will praise you. You will put on [the] remnant of anger.
11 Make vows and fulfill them to Yahweh, your God; let all surrounding him bring tribute to the [one to be] feared.
12 He cuts off [the] spirit of leaders. [He is to be] feared by [the] kings of [the] earth.
