Psalm 76
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
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. 1In Judah God is known; his name is great in Israel.
2He lives in Salem; he dwells in Zion. 2His abode has been established 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 broke the flashing 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. 4Glorious are you, more majestic than the mountains full of prey.
5The bravehearted were plundered; they "fell asleep." All the warriors were helpless. 5The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; all the men of war were unable to use their hands.
6At the sound of your battle cry, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse "fell asleep." 6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned.
7You are awesome! Yes, you! Who can withstand your intense anger? 7But you, you are to be feared! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused?
8From heaven you announced what their punishment would be. The earth was afraid and silent 8From the heavens you uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still,
9when God arose to execute judgment, and to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. (Selah) 9when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth. Selah
10Certainly your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; you reveal your anger in full measure. 10Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt.
11Make vows to the LORD your God and repay them! Let all those who surround him bring tribute to the awesome one! 11Make your vows to the LORD your God and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared,
12He humbles princes; the kings of the earth regard him as awesome. 12who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
