1 To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
2 In Judah God is known, his name is great in Israel.
3 His abode has been established in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
4 There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. [Selah]
5 Glorious art thou, more majestic than the everlasting mountains.
6 The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; all the men of war were unable to use their hands.
7 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned.
8 But thou, terrible art thou! Who can stand before thee when once thy anger is roused?
9 From the heavens thou didst utter judgment; the earth feared and was still,
10 when God arose to establish judgment to save all the oppressed of the earth. [Selah]
11 Surely the wrath of men shall praise thee; the residue of wrath thou wilt gird upon thee.
12 Make your vows to the LORD your God, and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared, [ (Psalms 76:13) who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is terrible to the kings of the earth. ]
