Psalm 76 Bible in Basic English

The God of Victory and Judgment

76 1  In Judah is the knowledge of God; his name is great in Israel, 2  In Salem is his tent, his resting-place in Zion. 3  There were the arrows of the bow broken, there he put an end to body-cover, sword, and fight. (Selah.) 4  You are shining and full of glory, more than the eternal mountains. 5  Gone is the wealth of the strong, their last sleep has overcome them; the men of war have become feeble. 6  At the voice of your wrath, O God of Jacob, deep sleep has overcome carriage and horse.

7  You, you are to be feared; who may keep his place before you in the time of your wrath? 8  From heaven you gave your decision; the earth, in its fear, gave no sound, 9  When God took his place as judge, for the salvation of the poor on the earth. (Selah.) 10  The ... will give you praise; the rest of ... 11  Give to the Lord your God what is his by right; let all who are round him give offerings to him who is to be feared. 12  He puts an end to the wrath of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
