Who Can Stand in Your Presence?

Psalm 76

For the music director, on stringed instruments: a psalm of Asaph, a song.
In Judah God is known.
In Israel His Name is great.
In Salem is His sukkah
and His dwelling place in Zion.
There He broke the fiery shafts of the bow,
the shield, the sword, and the battle. Selah
You are brilliant,
more majestic than nourishing mountains.
The valiant have been plundered—
they slumbered in their sleep.
The mighty could not lift their hands.
At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both horse and rider lay dead asleep.
You are awesome, yes You are!
Who can stand in Your presence once You are angry?
From heaven You pronounced judgment.
The earth feared and was still—
10 when God rose up to judgment,
to save all the humble of the land. Selah
11 For wrath upon man will bring You praise,
a remnant of wrath You put on as a belt.
12 Make vows to Adonai your God and fulfill them.
Let all around Him bring tribute to the One who is to be feared.
13 He cuts off the breath of princes.
The kings of earth are in awe of Him.
