Who Can Stand in Your Presence?
1For the music director, on stringed instruments: a psalm of Asaph, a song.
2In Judah God is known. In Israel His Name is great.
3In Salem is His sukkah and His dwelling place in Zion.
4There He broke the fiery shafts of the bow, the shield, the sword, and the battle. Selah
5You are brilliant, more majestic than nourishing mountains.
6The valiant have been plundered— they slumbered in their sleep. The mighty could not lift their hands.
7At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both horse and rider lay dead asleep.
8You are awesome, yes You are! Who can stand in Your presence once You are angry?
9From heaven You pronounced judgment. The earth feared and was still—
10when God rose up to judgment, to save all the humble of the land. Selah
11For wrath upon man will bring You praise, a remnant of wrath You put on as a belt.
12Make vows to Adonai your God and fulfill them. Let all around Him bring tribute to the One who is to be feared.
13He cuts off the breath of princes. The kings of earth are in awe of Him.
