Psalm 76

English Standard Version

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. In Judah God is known; his name is great in Israel. (Ps 4:1; Ps 48:3; Ps 50:1) His abode has been established in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion. (Ge 14:18; Ps 9:11; Ps 27:5; Ps 74:2; La 2:6) There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. (Ps 46:9; Eze 39:9) Glorious are you, more majestic than the mountains full of prey. (Isa 14:25; Eze 39:4; Na 2:13) The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; all the men of war were unable to use their hands. (2Ki 19:35; Ps 13:3; Isa 46:12; Jer 51:39; Na 3:18) At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned. (Ex 15:1; Ex 15:21) But you, you are to be feared! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused? (Ps 47:2; Ps 130:3) From the heavens you uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still, (2Ch 20:29; Hab 2:20) when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth. (Ps 9:7) 10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; the remnant[1] of wrath you will put on like a belt. (Ex 9:16) 11 Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared, (Ge 31:42; Ge 31:53; Ps 50:14; Ps 68:29; Ps 89:7; Isa 8:13) 12 who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is to be feared by the kings of the earth. (Ps 47:2; Isa 18:5)
