Who Can Stand Before You?

To the choirmaster: with (A)stringed instruments. A Psalm of (B)Asaph. A Song.

76 In Judah God is (C)known;
    his name is great in Israel.
His (D)abode has been established in (E)Salem,
    his (F)dwelling place in Zion.
There he (G)broke the flashing arrows,
    the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah
Glorious are you, more majestic
    (H)than the mountains of (I)prey.
(J)The stout-hearted were stripped of their spoil;
    (K)they sank into sleep;
all the men of war
    were unable to use their hands.
At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
    both (L)rider and horse lay stunned.
(M)But you, you are to be feared!
    Who can (N)stand before you
    when once your anger is roused?
From the heavens you uttered judgement;
    (O)the earth feared and was still,
when God (P)arose to establish judgement,
    to save all the humble of the earth. Selah
10 Surely (Q)the wrath of man shall praise you;
    the remnant[a] of wrath you will put on like a belt.
11 (R)Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them;
    let all round him (S)bring gifts
    to him who (T)is to be feared,
12 who (U)cuts off the spirit of princes,
    who (V)is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
