Psalm 76
New King James Version Par ▾ 

The Majesty of God in Judgment

To the Chief Musician. On [a]stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1In Judah God is known;
His name is great in Israel.
2In [b]Salem also is His tabernacle,
And His dwelling place in Zion.
3There He broke the arrows of the bow,
The shield and sword of battle. Selah

4You are more glorious and excellent
Than the mountains of prey.
5The stouthearted were plundered;
They [c]have sunk into their sleep;
And none of the mighty men have found the use of their hands.
6At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both the chariot and horse were cast into a dead sleep.

7You, Yourself, are to be feared;
And who may stand in Your presence
When once You are angry?
8You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;
The earth feared and was still,
9When God arose to judgment,
To deliver all the oppressed of the earth. Selah

10Surely the wrath of man shall praise You;
With the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself.

11Make vows to the Lord your God, and pay them;
Let all who are around Him bring presents to Him who ought to be feared.
12He shall cut off the spirit of princes;
He is awesome to the kings of the earth.
