Psalms 76

To the chief musician on Neginoth, a psalm or song of Assaph.

In Judah hath God been made known: in Israel is his name great. And in Salem was his tabernacle made, and his dwelling-place in Zion. There broke he the shining arrows of the bow, shield, and sword, and battle. Selah. Thou art more brilliant, more excellent than the mountains full of prey. Bereft of reason are the stouthearted, they slumber their sleep: and none of the men of might have found the use of their hands. From thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, lie in deep sleep both chariot and horse. Thou—thou art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thy anger is kindled? From heaven hast thou caused thy sentence to be heard: the earth feared, and became still, 10 When God rose to judgment, to save all the lowly of the earth. Selah. 11 For the fury of man shall praise thee: the remainder of the fury wilt thou gird about thee. 12 Make vows, and pay them unto the Lord your God, all ye that are round about him: let men bring presents unto him that exciteth fear. He will cut down the spirit of the powerful: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
