1For the leader. With string music. A psalm of Asaf. A song:
2In Y’hudah God is known;
his name is great in Isra’el.
3His tent is in Shalem,
his place is in Tziyon.
4There he broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. (Selah)
5You are glorious, majestic,
more so than mountains of prey.
6The bravest have been stripped of their spoil
and now are sleeping their final sleep;
not one of these courageous men
finds strength to raise his hands.
7At your rebuke, God of Ya‘akov,
riders and horses lie stunned.
8You are fearsome! When once you are angry,
who can stand in your presence?
9You pronounce sentence from heaven;
the earth grows silent with fear
10when God arises to judge,
to save all the humble of the earth. (Selah)
11Human wrath serves only to praise you;
what remains of this wrath you wear as an ornament.
12Make vows to Adonai your God, and keep them;
all who are around him must bring presents to the one who should be feared.
13He curbs the spirit of princes;
he is fearsome to the kings of the earth.
