Psalm 76
International Standard VersionChristian Standard Bible
1God is known in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great.1God is known in Judah; his name is great in Israel.
2His abode is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.2His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
3There he shattered sharp arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of war. Interlude3There he shatters the bow's flaming arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah
4You are enveloped by light; more majestic than mountains filled with game.4You are resplendent and majestic coming down from the mountains of prey.
5Brave men were plundered while they slumbered in their sleep. All the men of the army were immobilized.5The brave-hearted have been plundered; they have slipped into their final sleep. None of the warriors was able to lift a hand.
6At the sound of your battle cry, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot rider fell into deep sleep.6At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both chariot and horse lay still.
7You are awesome! who can stand in your presence when you're angry?7And you--you are to be feared. When you are angry, who can stand before you?
8From heaven you declared judgment. The earth stands in awe and is quiet8From heaven you pronounced judgment. The earth feared and grew quiet
9when God arose to execute justice and to deliver all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude9when God rose up to judge and to save all the lowly of the earth. Selah
10Even human anger praises you; you will wear the survivors of your wrath as an ornament. 10Even human wrath will praise you; you will clothe yourself with the wrath that remains.
11Let everyone who surrounds the LORD your God make a vow and fulfill it to the Awesome One. 11Make and keep your vows to the LORD your God; let all who are around him bring tribute to the awe-inspiring one.
12He will humble the arrogant commanders-in-chief, instilling fear among the kings of the earth.12He humbles the spirit of leaders; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
