God Always Wins
76 You, our God, are famous in Judah and honored in Israel. 2 Your home is on Mount Zion in the city of peace. 3 There you destroyed fiery arrows, shields, swords, and all the other weapons.
4 You are more glorious than the eternal mountains.[a] 5 Brave warriors were robbed of what they had taken, and now they lie dead, unable to lift an arm. 6 God of Jacob, when you roar, enemy chariots and horses drop dead in their tracks.
7 Our God, you are fearsome, and no one can oppose you when you are angry. 8 From heaven you announced your decisions as judge! And all who live on this earth were terrified and silent 9 when you took over as judge, ready to rescue everyone in need. 10 Even the most angry people will praise you when you are furious.[b]
11 Everyone, make your promises to the Lord your God and do what you promise. The Lord is fearsome, and all of his servants should bring him gifts. 12 God destroys the courage of rulers and kings and makes cowards of them.
