Psalm 76:1-12

To the director on stringed instruments. A melody. Of Aʹsaph.+ A song. 76  God is known in Judah;+In Israel his name is great.+   And his covert proves to be in Saʹlem itself,+And his dwelling place in Zion.+   There he broke the flaming shafts of the bow,+The shield and the sword and the battle.+ Seʹlah.   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.+ Seʹlah. 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.+
