1To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph. In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.2In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.3There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.4Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.5The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.6At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.7Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?8Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,9When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.10Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.11Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.12He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

Who Can Stand Before You?
1To 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)2His 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)3There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. (Ps 46:9; Eze 39:9)4Glorious are you, more majestic than the mountains full of prey. (Isa 14:25; Eze 39:4; Na 2:13)5The 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)6At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned. (Ex 15:1; Ex 15:21)7But you, you are to be feared! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused? (Ps 47:2; Ps 130:3)8From the heavens you uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still, (2Ch 20:29; Hab 2:20)9when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth. (Ps 9:7)10Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt. (Ex 9:16)11Make 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)12who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is to be feared by the kings of the earth. (Ps 47:2; Isa 18:5)
