Psalm 76:1-12

For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a song. 76  In Judah is God known: His name is great in Israel. 2  In Salem also is his tabernacle, And his dwelling-place in Zion. 3  There he brake the arrows of the bow; The shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah 4  Glorious art thou and excellent, From the mountains of prey. 5  The stouthearted are made a spoil, They have slept their sleep; And none of the men of might have found their hands. 6  At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both chariot and horse are cast into a deep sleep. 7  Thou, even thou, art to be feared; And who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry? 8  Thou didst cause sentence to be heard from heaven; The earth feared, and was still, 9  When God arose to judgment, To save all the meek of the earth. Selah 10  Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: The residue of wrath shalt thou gird upon thee. 11  Vow, and pay unto Jehovah your God: Let all that are round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared. 12  He will cut off the spirit of princes: He is terrible to the kings of the earth.
