Psalm 76
New Living TranslationInternational Standard Version
1God is honored in Judah; his name is great in Israel.1God is known in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great.
2Jerusalem is where he lives; Mount Zion is his home.2His abode is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
3There he has broken the fiery arrows of the enemy, the shields and swords and weapons of war. Interlude3There he shattered sharp arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of war. Interlude
4You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains.4You are enveloped by light; more majestic than mountains filled with game.
5Our boldest enemies have been plundered. They lie before us in the sleep of death. No warrior could lift a hand against us.5Brave men were plundered while they slumbered in their sleep. All the men of the army were immobilized.
6At the blast of your breath, O God of Jacob, their horses and chariots lay still.6At the sound of your battle cry, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot rider fell into deep sleep.
7No wonder you are greatly feared! Who can stand before you when your anger explodes?7You are awesome! who can stand in your presence when you're angry?
8From heaven you sentenced your enemies; the earth trembled and stood silent before you.8From heaven you declared judgment. The earth stands in awe and is quiet
9You stand up to judge those who do evil, O God, and to rescue the oppressed of the earth. Interlude9when God arose to execute justice and to deliver all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude
10Human defiance only enhances your glory, for you use it as a weapon.10Even human anger praises you; you will wear the survivors of your wrath as an ornament.
11Make vows to the LORD your God, and keep them. Let everyone bring tribute to the Awesome One.11Let everyone who surrounds the LORD your God make a vow and fulfill it to the Awesome One.
12For he breaks the pride of princes, and the kings of the earth fear him.12He will humble the arrogant commanders-in-chief, instilling fear among the kings of the earth.
