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. 2 His tabernacle is in Salem (Jerusalem); His dwelling place is in Zion. 3 There He broke the flaming arrows, The shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah.
4 You are glorious and resplendent, More majestic than the mountains of prey. 5 The stouthearted have been stripped of their spoil, They have slept the sleep [of death]; And none of the warriors could use his hands. 6 At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep [of death]. 7 You, even You, are to be feared [with the submissive wonder of reverence]; Who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?
8 You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; The earth feared and was quiet 9 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.
