|1 To the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. In Judah God is known; His name is great in Israel.
2 In Salem also is His tabernacle, And His dwelling place in Zion.
3 There He broke the arrows of the bow, The shield and sword of battle. Selah
4 You are more glorious and excellent Than the mountains of prey.
5 The stouthearted were plundered; They have sunk into their sleep; And none of the mighty men have found the use of their hands.
6 At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both the chariot and horse were cast into a dead sleep. |
7 You, Yourself, are to be feared; And who may stand in Your presence When once You are angry?
8 You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; The earth feared and was still,
9 When God arose to judgment, To deliver all the oppressed of the earth. Selah
10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise You; With the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself.
11 Make vows to the Lord your God, and pay them; Let all who are around Him bring presents to Him who ought to be feared.
12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes; He is awesome to the kings of the earth.
