Psalm 76

Psalm 76

For the choir director: A psalm of Asaph. A song to be accompanied by stringed instruments.

God is honored in Judah;
    his name is great in Israel.
Jerusalem[a] is where he lives;
    Mount Zion is his home.
There he has broken the fiery arrows of the enemy,
    the shields and swords and weapons of war. Interlude

You are glorious and more majestic
    than the everlasting mountains.[b]
Our boldest enemies have been plundered.
    They lie before us in the sleep of death.
    No warrior could lift a hand against us.
At the blast of your breath, O God of Jacob,
    their horses and chariots lay still.

No wonder you are greatly feared!
    Who can stand before you when your anger explodes?
From heaven you sentenced your enemies;
    the earth trembled and stood silent before you.
You stand up to judge those who do evil, O God,
    and to rescue the oppressed of the earth. Interlude
10 Human defiance only enhances your glory,
    for you use it as a weapon.[c]

11 Make vows to the Lord your God, and keep them.
    Let everyone bring tribute to the Awesome One.
12 For he breaks the pride of princes,
    and the kings of the earth fear him.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 76

The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

1God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel.

His tabernacle is in Salem (Jerusalem);
His dwelling place is in Zion.

There He broke the flaming arrows,
The shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah.


You are glorious and resplendent,
More majestic than the mountains of prey.

The stouthearted have been stripped of their spoil,
They have slept the sleep [of death];
And none of the warriors could use his hands.

At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep [of death].

You, even You, are to be feared [with the submissive wonder of reverence];
Who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?


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

When God arose to [establish] judgment,
To save all the humble of the earth. Selah.
10 
For the wrath of man shall praise You;
With a remnant of wrath You will clothe and arm 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 [with awe-inspired reverence].
12 
He will cut off the spirit of princes;
He is awesome and feared by the kings of the earth.
