To the director; to be accompanied with stringed instruments. A melody of Aʹsaph.+ A song.
76 God is known in Judah;+
In Israel his name is great.+
2 His shelter is in Saʹlem,+
And his dwelling is in Zion.+
3 There he broke the flaming arrows of the bow,
The shield and the sword and the weapons of war.+ (Selah)
4 You shine brightly;*
You are more majestic than the mountains of prey.
5 The courageous of heart have been plundered.+
They have fallen asleep;
The warriors were all helpless.+
6 From your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both the charioteer and the horse have fallen fast asleep.+
7 You alone are awe-inspiring.+
Who can withstand your intense anger?+
8 From heaven you pronounced judgment;+
The earth was afraid and was silent+
9 When God rose up to execute judgment,
To save all the meek of the earth.+ (Selah)
10 For the rage of man will serve to your praise;+
With the remnants of their rage you will adorn yourself.
11 Make your vows to Jehovah your God and pay them,+
Let all who are around him bring their gift in fear.+
12 He will humble the pride* of leaders;
He inspires fear in the kings of the earth.
