Bible: Psalm 76

Psalm 76 1 

76:1 For the music director; to be accompanied by stringed instruments; a psalm of Asaph, a song.

God has revealed himself in Judah; 2 

in Israel his reputation 3  is great.

76:2 He lives in Salem; 4 

he dwells in Zion. 5 

76:3 There he shattered the arrows, 6 

the shield, the sword, and the rest of the weapons of war. 7  (Selah)

76:4 You shine brightly and reveal your majesty,

as you descend from the hills where you killed your prey. 8 

76:5 The bravehearted 9  were plundered; 10 

they “fell asleep.” 11 

All the warriors were helpless. 12 

76:6 At the sound of your battle cry, 13  O God of Jacob,

both rider 14  and horse “fell asleep.” 15 

76:7 You are awesome! Yes, you!

Who can withstand your intense anger? 16 

76:8 From heaven you announced what their punishment would be. 17 

The earth 18  was afraid and silent

76:9 when God arose to execute judgment,

and to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. (Selah)

76:10 Certainly 19  your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; 20 

you reveal your anger in full measure. 21 

76:11 Make vows to the Lord your God and repay them!

Let all those who surround him 22  bring tribute to the awesome one!

76:12 He humbles princes; 23 

the kings of the earth regard him as awesome. 24
