Psalm 76

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.
His [a]tabernacle is in Salem;
His dwelling place also is in Zion.
There He broke the [b]flaming arrows,
The shield and the sword and the [c]weapons of war. [d]Selah.

You are resplendent,
[e]More majestic than the mountains of prey.
The stouthearted were plundered,
[f]They sank into sleep;
And none of the [g]warriors could use his hands.
At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both [h]rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep.
You, even You, are to be feared;
And who may stand in Your presence when once [i]You are angry?

You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;
The earth feared and was still
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.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 76

Psalm 76

For the director of music. A psalm of Asaph. A song to be played on stringed instruments.

In the land of Judah, God is well known.
    In Israel, his name is great.
His tent is in Jerusalem.
    The place where he lives is on Mount Zion.
There he broke the deadly arrows of his enemies.
    He broke their shields and swords.
    He broke their weapons of war.

God, you shine like a very bright light.
    You are more majestic than mountains full of wild animals.
Brave soldiers have been robbed of everything they had.
    Now they lie there, sleeping in death.
    Not one of them can even lift his hands.
God of Jacob, at your command
    both horse and chariot lie still.
People should have respect for you alone.
    Who can stand in front of you when you are angry?
From heaven you handed down your sentence.
    The land was afraid and became quiet.
God, that happened when you rose up to judge.
    It happened when you came to save all your suffering people in the land.
10 Your anger against sinners brings you praise.
    Those who live through your anger gather to worship you.

11 Make promises to the Lord your God and keep them.
    Let all the neighboring nations
    bring gifts to the God who should be respected.
12 He breaks the proud spirit of rulers.
    The kings of the earth have respect for him.
