Psalm 76

The God of Victory

For the choir director. With stringed instruments. A psalm by Asaph. A song.

God’s Fame

God is known in Judah. In Israel his name is great.
His shelter is in Salem. His dwelling place is in Zion.

God’s Victory

There he broke the flaming arrows,
the shield and the sword, and the weapons for battle. Interlude
You shine brightly as the Mighty One from the mountains full of prey.
The strong-hearted are plundered.
They have fallen into their final sleep.
Not one of the strong men can lift his hands.
At your rebuke,[a] O God of Jacob, both chariot and horses sleep.
You are to be feared, yes, you.
Who can stand before you at the time of your wrath?
From heaven you announced judgment.
The earth feared and was quiet
when you rose up to judge, O God,
and to save all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude

God’s Fame

10 Even the wrath of mankind[b] will bring you praise.
You wear what remains of your wrath like a belt.
11 Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them.
Let all who are around him bring tribute to the one who is fearsome.
12 He restrains the spirit of nobles.
He is fearsome against the kings of the earth.

Psalm 76 New 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.
