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. 1For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song. God is known in Judah; His name is great in Israel.
2He lives in Salem; he dwells in Zion. 2His tabernacle is in Salem; His dwelling place also is in Zion.
3There he shattered the arrows, the shield, the sword, and the rest of the weapons of war. (Selah) 3There He broke the flaming arrows, The shield and 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, More majestic than the mountains of prey.
5The bravehearted were plundered; they "fell asleep." All the warriors were helpless. 5The stouthearted were plundered, They sank into sleep; And none of the warriors could use his 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 were cast into a dead sleep.
7You are awesome! Yes, you! Who can withstand your intense anger? 7You, even You, are to be feared; And who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?
8From heaven you announced what their punishment would be. The earth was afraid and silent 8You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; 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 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. 10For the wrath of man shall praise You; With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself.
11Make vows to the LORD your God and repay them! Let all those who surround him bring tribute to the awesome one! 11Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; Let all who are around Him bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.
12He humbles princes; the kings of the earth regard him as awesome. 12He will cut off the spirit of princes; He is feared by the kings of the earth.
