Psalm 76
New International VersionEnglish Standard Version
1For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song. God is renowned in Judah; in Israel his name is great.1In Judah God is known; his name is great in Israel.
2His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.2His abode has been established in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
3There he broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.3There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah
4You are radiant with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game.4Glorious are you, more majestic than the mountains full of prey.
5The valiant lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands.5The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; all the men of war were unable to use their hands.
6At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still.6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned.
7It is you alone who are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry?7But you, you are to be feared! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused?
8From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet--8From the heavens you uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still,
9when you, God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land.9when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth. Selah
10Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.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 fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared.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 breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.12who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
