+ A song.To the director on stringed instruments. A melody. Of Aʹsaph.
76 God is known in Judah;+
In Israel his name is great.+
2 And his covert proves to be in Saʹlem itself,+
And his dwelling place in Zion.+
3 There he broke the flaming shafts of the bow,+
The shield and the sword and the battle.+ Seʹlah.
4 You are enveloped with light, more majestic than the mountains of prey.+
5 The ones powerful in heart have been despoiled,+
They have drowsed away to their sleep,+
And none of all the valiant men have found their hands.+
6 From your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the charioteer and the horse have fallen fast asleep.+
7 You—fear-inspiring you are,+
And who can stand before you because of the strength of your anger?+
8 From heaven you caused the legal contest to be heard;+
The earth itself feared and kept quiet+
9 When God rose up to judgment,+
To save all the meek of the earth.+ Seʹlah.
10 For the very rage of man will laud you;+
The remainder of raging you will gird upon yourself.
11 Vow and pay to Jehovah YOUR God, all YOU who are round about him.+
Let them bring a gift in fear.+
12 He will humble the spirit of leaders;+
Fear-inspiring he is to the kings of the earth.+
