Psalm 76
NET BibleInternational 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. 1God is known in Judah; in Israel his reputation is great.
2He lives in Salem; he dwells in Zion. 2His abode 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 shattered sharp arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of war. Interlude
4You shine brightly and reveal your majesty, as you descend from the hills where you killed your prey. 4You are enveloped by light; more majestic than mountains filled with game.
5The bravehearted were plundered; they "fell asleep." All the warriors were helpless. 5Brave men were plundered while they slumbered in their sleep. All the men of the army were immobilized.
6At the sound of your battle cry, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse "fell asleep." 6At the sound of your battle cry, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot rider fell into deep sleep.
7You are awesome! Yes, you! Who can withstand your intense anger? 7You are awesome! who can stand in your presence when you're angry?
8From heaven you announced what their punishment would be. The earth was afraid and silent 8From heaven you declared judgment. The earth stands in awe and is quiet
9when God arose to execute judgment, and to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. (Selah) 9when God arose to execute justice and to deliver all the afflicted of the earth. Interlude
10Certainly your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; you reveal your anger in full measure. 10Even human anger praises you; you will wear the survivors of your wrath as an ornament.
11Make vows to the LORD your God and repay them! Let all those who surround him bring tribute to the awesome one! 11Let everyone who surrounds the LORD your God make a vow and fulfill it to the Awesome One.
12He humbles princes; the kings of the earth regard him as awesome. 12He will humble the arrogant commanders-in-chief, instilling fear among the kings of the earth.
