Psalm 76

For the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A Psalm by Asaph. A song. 1In Judah, God is known. His name is great in Israel. 2His tabernacle is also in Salem; His dwelling place in Zion. 3There he broke the flaming arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah. 4Glorious are you, and excellent, more than mountains of game. 5Valiant men lie plundered, they have slept their last sleep. None of the men of war can lift their hands. 6At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both chariot and horse are cast into a deep sleep. 7You, even you, are to be feared. Who can stand in your sight when you are angry? 8You pronounced judgment from heaven. The earth feared, and was silent, 9when God arose to judgment, to save all the afflicted ones of the earth. Selah. 10Surely the wrath of man praises you. The survivors of your wrath are restrained. 11Make vows to TheIAM your God, and fulfill them! Let all of his neighbors bring presents to him who is to be feared. 12He will cut off the spirit of princes. He is feared by the kings of the earth.
