Psalm 76Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

76 God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel.

His tabernacle is in Salem (Jerusalem);
His dwelling place is in Zion.

There He broke the flaming arrows,
The shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah.


You are glorious and resplendent,
More majestic than the mountains of prey.

The stouthearted have been stripped of their spoil,
They have slept the sleep [of death];
And none of the warriors could use his hands.

At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep [of death].

You, even You, are to be feared [with the submissive wonder of reverence];
Who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?


You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;
The earth feared and was quiet

When God arose to [establish] 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 clothe and arm 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 [with awe-inspired reverence].
12 
He will cut off the spirit of princes;
He is awesome and feared by the kings of the earth.

Psalm 76New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 76[a]

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song.

God is renowned in Judah;
    in Israel his name is great.
His tent is in Salem,
    his dwelling place in Zion.
There he broke the flashing arrows,
    the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.[b]

You are radiant with light,
    more majestic than mountains rich with game.
The valiant lie plundered,
    they sleep their last sleep;
not one of the warriors
    can lift his hands.
At your rebuke, God of Jacob,
    both horse and chariot lie still.

It is you alone who are to be feared.
    Who can stand before you when you are angry?
From heaven you pronounced judgment,
    and the land feared and was quiet—
when you, God, rose up to judge,
    to save all the afflicted of the land.
10 Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise,
    and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.[c]

11 Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them;
    let all the neighboring lands
    bring gifts to the One to be feared.
12 He breaks the spirit of rulers;
    he is feared by the kings of the earth.
