The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.

For the music director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.

1God is known in Judah;

His name is great in Israel.

2His [a]tabernacle is in Salem;

His dwelling place also is in Zion.

3There He broke the [b]flaming arrows,

The shield, the sword, and the [c]weapons of war. Selah

4You are resplendent,

[d]More majestic than the mountains of prey.

5The stouthearted were plundered,

[e]They sank into sleep;

And none of the [f]warriors could use his hands.

6At Your rebuke, God of Jacob,

Both [g]rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep.

7You, You indeed are to be feared,

And who may stand in Your presence, [h]once You are angry?

8You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;

The earth feared and was still

9When God arose to judgment,

To save all the humble of the earth. Selah

10For the [i]wrath of mankind shall praise You;

You will encircle Yourself with a remnant of wrath.

11Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them;

All who are around Him are to bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.

12He will cut off the spirit of princes;

He is [j]feared by the kings of the earth.
