The Majesty of God in Judgment
To the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
1In #Ps. 48:1, 3Judah God is 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 sword of battle.
4You are more glorious and excellent
#Ezek. 38:12Than the mountains of prey.
5#Is. 10:12; 46:12The stouthearted were plundered;
#Ps. 13:3They have sunk into their sleep;
And none of the mighty men have found the use of their hands.
6#Ex. 15:1–21; Ezek. 39:20; Nah. 2:13; Zech. 12:4At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
Both the chariot and horse were cast into a dead sleep.
7You, Yourself, are to be feared;
And #(Ezra 9:15; Nah. 1:6; Mal. 3:2; Rev. 6:17)who may stand in Your presence
When once You are angry?
8#Ex. 19:9You caused judgment to be heard from heaven;
#1 Chr. 16:30; 2 Chr. 20:29The earth feared and was still,
9When God #(Ps. 9:7–9)arose to judgment,
To deliver all the oppressed of the earth.
10#Ex. 9:16; Rom. 9:17Surely the wrath of man shall praise You;
With the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself.
11#(Eccl. 5:4–6)Make vows to the Lord your God, and pay them;
#2 Chr. 32:22, 23Let all who are around Him bring presents to Him who ought to be feared.
12He shall cut off the spirit of princes;
#Ps. 68:35He is awesome to the kings of the earth.
