Psalms - Chapter 76

In Judah God is known; his name is great in Israel.   1

His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.   2

There he broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.   3

You are resplendent with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game.   4

Valiant men lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands.   5

At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still.   6

You alone are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry?   7

From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet-   8

when you, O God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land.   9

Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.   10

Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared.   11

He breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.   12
