The Awesome God
76 God is known in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great. 2 His abode is in Salem,[a] his dwelling place in Zion. 3 There he shattered sharp arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of[b] war. Interlude
4 You are enveloped by light; more majestic than mountains filled with game. 5 Brave men were plundered while they slumbered in their sleep. All the men of the army were immobilized. 6 At the sound of your battle cry, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot rider fell into deep sleep. 7 You are awesome! who can stand in your presence when you’re angry? 8 From heaven you declared judgment. The earth stands in awe and is quiet 9 when God arose to execute justice and to deliver all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude 10 Even human anger praises you; you will wear the survivors of your wrath as an ornament.[c]
11 Let everyone who surrounds the Lord your God make a vow and fulfill it to the Awesome One.[d] 12 He will humble the arrogant[e] commanders-in-chief,[f] instilling fear among the kings of the earth.
