Psalms 76:1-12

To the director on stringed instruments. A melody. Of A′saph.+ A song. 76  God is known in Judah;+ In Israel his name is great.+   And his covert proves to be in Sa′lem itself,+ And his dwelling place in Zion.+   There he broke the flaming shafts of the bow,+ The shield and the sword and the battle.+ Se′lah.   You are enveloped with light, more majestic than the mountains of prey.+   The ones powerful in heart have been despoiled,+ They have drowsed away to their sleep,+ And none of all the valiant men have found their hands.+   From your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the charioteer and the horse have fallen fast asleep.+   You—fear-inspiring you are,+ And who can stand before you because of the strength of your anger?+   From heaven you caused the legal contest to be heard;+ The earth itself feared and kept quiet+   When God rose up to judgment,+ To save all the meek of the earth.+ Se′lah. 10  For the very rage of man* will laud you;+ The remainder of raging you will gird upon yourself.* 11  Vow and pay to Jehovah YOUR God, all YOU who are round about him.+ Let them bring a gift in fear.+ 12  He will humble* the spirit of leaders;+ Fear-inspiring he is to the kings of the earth.+
