Psalm 76

God, the Powerful Judge

For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song.

1 God is known in Judah; His name is greata in Israel.
2 His tent is in Salem,b c His dwelling place in Zion.
3 There He shatters the bow's flaming arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.d Selah
4 You are resplendent and majestic [coming down] from the mountains of prey.
5 The brave-hearted have been plundered; they have slipped into their [final] sleep. None of the warriors was able to lift a hand.
6 At Your rebuke, God of Jacob, both chariot and horse lay still.
7 And You-You are to be feared.e When You are angry, who can stand before You?f
8 From heaven You pronounced judgment. The earth feared and grew quiet
9 when God rose up to judge and to save all the lowly of the earth.g Selah
10 Even human wrath will praise You; You will clothe Yourself with their remaining wrath.h
11 Make and keep your vows to the Lord your God; let all who are around Him bring tributei to the awe-inspiring One.j
12 He humbles the spirit of leaders; He is feared by the kings of the earth.
