Psalms 76

Who Can Stand Before You?

To the choirmaster: with a stringed instruments. A Psalm of b Asaph. A Song.

In Judah God is c known;
his name is great in Israel.
His d abode has been established in e Salem,
his f dwelling place in Zion.
There he g broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.  Selah
Glorious are you, more majestic
h than the mountains full of i prey.
j The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;
k they sank into sleep;
all the men of war
were unable to use their hands.
At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both l rider and horse lay stunned.
m But you, you are to be feared!
Who can n stand before you
when once your anger is roused?
From the heavens you uttered judgment;
o the earth feared and was still,
when God p arose to establish judgment,
to save all the humble of the earth.  Selah
10  Surely q the wrath of man shall praise you;
the remnant
Or extremity
of wrath you will put on like a belt.
11  s Make your vows to the  Lord your God and perform them;
let all around him t bring gifts
to him who u is to be feared,
12 who v cuts off the spirit of princes,
who w is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
