The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.
For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.
1God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel.
2 His [a]tabernacle is in Salem;
His dwelling place also is in Zion.
3 There He broke the [b]flaming arrows,
The shield and the sword and the [c]weapons of war. [d]Selah.
4 You are resplendent,
[e]More majestic than the mountains of prey.
5 The stouthearted were plundered,
[f]They sank into sleep;
And none of the [g]warriors could use his hands.
6 At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both [h]rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep.
7 You, even You, are to be feared;
And who may stand in Your presence when once [i]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 save all the humble of the earth. Selah.
10 For the [j]wrath of man shall praise You;
With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself.
11 Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them;
Let all who are around Him bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.
12 He will cut off the spirit of princes;
He is [k]feared by the kings of the earth.
