To the Overcomer on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.
1¶ In Judah is God known; his name is great in Israel.
2In Salem also is his tabernacle and his dwelling place in Zion.
3There he broke the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the war. Selah.
4Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
5The stouthearted are spoiled; they have slept their sleep; and nothing was found in the hands of the men of might.
6At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
7¶ Thou, even thou, art to be feared, and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
8From the heavens thou didst cause judgment to be heard; the earth feared and was still,
9when thou didst arise unto judgment, O God, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
10Surely the wrath of man shall cause praise to come unto 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.
