Psalm 76
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1God is known in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great.1In Judah God is known; his name is great in Israel.
2His abode is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.2His abode has been established in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
3There he shattered sharp arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of war. Interlude3There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah
4You are enveloped by light; more majestic than mountains filled with game.4Glorious are you, more majestic than the mountains full of prey.
5Brave men were plundered while they slumbered in their sleep. All the men of the army were immobilized.5The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; all the men of war were unable to use their hands.
6At the sound of your battle cry, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot rider fell into deep sleep.6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned.
7You are awesome! who can stand in your presence when you're angry?7But you, you are to be feared! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused?
8From heaven you declared judgment. The earth stands in awe and is quiet8From the heavens you uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still,
9when God arose to execute justice and to deliver all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude9when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth. Selah
10Even human anger praises you; you will wear the survivors of your wrath as an ornament. 10Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt.
11Let everyone who surrounds the LORD your God make a vow and fulfill it to the Awesome One. 11Make your vows to the LORD your God and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared,
12He will humble the arrogant commanders-in-chief, instilling fear among the kings of the earth.12who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
