The Victorious Power of the God of Jacob.
For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song.
1God is known in Judah;
His name is great in Israel.
2His tabernacle is in Salem;
His dwelling place also is in Zion.
3There He broke the flaming arrows,
The shield and the sword and the weapons of war. Selah.
4You are resplendent,
More majestic than the mountains of prey.
5The stouthearted were plundered,
They sank into sleep;
And none of the warriors could use his hands.
6At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both rider and horse were cast into a dead sleep.
7You, even You, are to be feared;
And who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?
8You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;
The earth feared and was still
9When God arose to judgment,
To save all the humble of the earth. Selah.
10For the wrath of man shall praise You;
With a remnant of wrath You will gird Yourself.
11Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them;
Let all who are around Him bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.
12He will cut off the spirit of princes;
He is feared by the kings of the earth.
