Psalm 76

God, the Powerful Judge

For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song.

1 God is known in Judah;
his name is great in Israel.
2 His tent is in Salem,
his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There he shatters the bow’s flaming arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.


4 You are resplendent and majestic
coming down from the mountains of prey.
5 The brave-hearted have been plundered;
they have slipped into their final sleep.
None of the warriors was able to lift a hand.
6 At your rebuke, God of Jacob,
both chariot and horse lay still.
7 And you ​— ​you are to be feared.
When you are angry,
who can stand before you?
8 From heaven you pronounced judgment.
The earth feared and grew quiet
9 when God rose up to judge
and to save all the lowly of the earth.


10 Even human wrath will praise you;
you will clothe yourself
with the wrath that remains.
11 Make and keep your vows
to the Lord your God;
let all who are around him bring tribute
to the awe-inspiring one.
12 He humbles the spirit of leaders;
he is feared by the kings of the earth.
