For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph [C a Levitical musician, a descendant of Gershon, at the time of David; 1 Chr. 6:39; 15:17; 2 Chr. 5:12]. A song.
76 ·People in Judah know God [L God is known in Judah]; his ·fame [name] is great in Israel. 2 His Tent is in ·Jerusalem [L Salem; C shortened name of Jerusalem]; his ·home [abode] is on Mount Zion [Ps. 48]. 3 There God broke the flaming arrows, the shields, the swords, and the weapons of war. ·Selah[Interlude]
4 God, how ·wonderful [glorious; awesome; or radiant] you are! You are more ·splendid [majestic] than the ·hills full of animals [hills full of prey; or everlasting mountains]. 5 The ·brave soldiers [L strong of heart] were ·stripped [plundered] as they ·lay asleep in death [sleep their last sleep]. Not one ·warrior [valiant person] ·had the strength to stop it [L could lift their hand]. 6 God of Jacob, ·when you spoke strongly [L at your rebuke/reprimand], horses and riders ·fell dead [L were in deep sleep; or lay stupefied]. 7 You are ·feared [awesome]; ·no one [L who…?] can stand against you when you are angry. 8 From heaven you ·gave the decision [made your judgment heard], and the earth was afraid and silent. 9 God, you ·stood [rose] up to judge and to ·save [give victory to] the needy people of the earth. ·Selah[Interlude] 10 ·People praise you for your anger against evil [or Human anger praises you]. ·Those who live through your anger are stopped from doing more evil [Those who survive your wrath are restrained; L You gird the remains of wrath on you].
11 Make and keep your ·promises [vows] to the Lord your God. From all around, gifts should come to the God ·we worship [L who is awesome]. 12 God ·breaks [cuts off] the spirits of ·great leaders [princes]; the kings on earth fear him.
