Psalm 76
NET BibleChristian Standard Bible
1For the music director; to be accompanied by stringed instruments; a psalm of Asaph, a song. God has revealed himself in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great. 1God is known in Judah; his name is great in Israel.
2He lives in Salem; he dwells in Zion. 2His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
3There he shattered the arrows, the shield, the sword, and the rest of the weapons of war. (Selah) 3There he shatters the bow's flaming arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah
4You shine brightly and reveal your majesty, as you descend from the hills where you killed your prey. 4You are resplendent and majestic coming down from the mountains of prey.
5The bravehearted were plundered; they "fell asleep." All the warriors were helpless. 5The brave-hearted have been plundered; they have slipped into their final sleep. None of the warriors was able to lift a hand.
6At the sound of your battle cry, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse "fell asleep." 6At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both chariot and horse lay still.
7You are awesome! Yes, you! Who can withstand your intense anger? 7And you--you are to be feared. When you are angry, who can stand before you?
8From heaven you announced what their punishment would be. The earth was afraid and silent 8From heaven you pronounced judgment. The earth feared and grew quiet
9when God arose to execute judgment, and to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. (Selah) 9when God rose up to judge and to save all the lowly of the earth. Selah
10Certainly your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; you reveal your anger in full measure. 10Even human wrath will praise you; you will clothe yourself with the wrath that remains.
11Make vows to the LORD your God and repay them! Let all those who surround him bring tribute to the awesome one! 11Make and keep your vows to the LORD your God; let all who are around him bring tribute to the awe-inspiring one.
12He humbles princes; the kings of the earth regard him as awesome. 12He humbles the spirit of leaders; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
