|<< Psalm 76 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
[For the choir director; on stringed instruments; a psalm by Asaph; a song.] God is known in Judah. His name is great in Israel.
2His tent is in Salem. His home is in Zion.
3There he destroyed flaming arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of war. [Selah]
4You are the radiant one. You are more majestic than the ancient mountains.
5Brave people were robbed. They died. None of the warriors were able to lift a hand.
6At your stern warning, O God of Jacob, chariot riders and horses were put to sleep.
7You alone must be feared! Who can stand in your presence when you become angry?
8From heaven you announced a verdict. The earth was fearful and silent
9when you rose to judge, O God, when you rose to save every oppressed person on earth. [Selah]
10Even angry mortals will praise you. You will wear the remainder of [their] anger.
11Make vows to the LORD your God, and keep them. Let everyone around him bring gifts to the one who must be feared.
12He cuts short the lives of influential people. He terrifies the kings of the earth.
