Psalm 76

God, the Powerful Judge

For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph.(A) A song.

God is known in Judah;
his name is great in Israel.(B)
His tent is in Salem,
his dwelling place in Zion.(C)
There he shatters the bow’s flaming arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.(D)Selah

You are resplendent and majestic
coming down from the mountains of prey.(E)
The brave-hearted have been plundered;
they have slipped into their final sleep.
None of the warriors was able to lift a hand.(F)
At your rebuke, God of Jacob,
both chariot and horse lay still.(G)

And you—you are to be feared.[a]
When you are angry,
who can stand before you?(H)
From heaven you pronounced judgment.
The earth feared and grew quiet(I)
when God rose up to judge
and to save all the lowly of the earth.(J)Selah
10 Even human wrath will praise you;
you will clothe yourself
with the wrath that remains.[b](K)

11 Make and keep your vows
to the Lord your God;(L)
let all who are around him bring tribute
to the awe-inspiring one.[c](M)
12 He humbles the spirit of leaders;
he is feared by the kings of the earth.(N)
