Psalm 76Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
God, the Powerful Judge
For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song.
1 God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel.
2 His tent is in Salem,
His dwelling place in Zion.
3 There He shatters the bow’s flaming arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.Selah
4 You are resplendent and majestic
coming down from the mountains of prey.
5 The brave-hearted have been plundered;
they have slipped into their final sleep.
None of the warriors was able to lift a hand.
6 At Your rebuke, God of Jacob,
both chariot and horse lay still.
7 And You—You are to be feared.
When You are angry,
who can stand before You?
8 From heaven You pronounced judgment.
The earth feared and grew quiet
9 when God rose up to judge
and to save all the lowly of the earth.Selah
10 Even human wrath will praise You;
You will clothe Yourself
with their remaining wrath.
11 Make and keep your vows
to the Lord your God;
let all who are around Him bring tribute
to the awe-inspiring One.
12 He humbles the spirit of leaders;
He is feared by the kings of the earth.
