Psalm 76
International Standard VersionNew International Version
1God is known in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great.1For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song. God is renowned in Judah; in Israel his name is great.
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 broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.
4You are enveloped by light; more majestic than mountains filled with game.4You are radiant with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game.
5Brave men were plundered while they slumbered in their sleep. All the men of the army were immobilized.5The valiant lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands.
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 horse and chariot lie still.
7You are awesome! who can stand in your presence when you're angry?7It is you alone who are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry?
8From heaven you declared judgment. The earth stands in awe and is quiet8From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet--
9when God arose to execute justice and to deliver all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude9when you, God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land.
10Even human anger praises you; you will wear the survivors of your wrath as an ornament. 10Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.
11Let everyone who surrounds the LORD your God make a vow and fulfill it to the Awesome One. 11Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared.
12He will humble the arrogant commanders-in-chief, instilling fear among the kings of the earth.12He breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
