The God of Victory and Judgment
76 1 To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. In Judah God is known, his name is great in Israel. 2 His abode has been established in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion. 3 There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. [Selah] 4 Glorious art thou, more majestic than the everlasting mountains. 5 The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil; they sank into sleep; all the men of war were unable to use their hands. 6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both rider and horse lay stunned.
7 But thou, terrible art thou! Who can stand before thee when once thy anger is roused? 8 From the heavens thou didst utter judgment; the earth feared and was still, 9 when God arose to establish judgment to save all the oppressed of the earth. [Selah] 10 Surely the wrath of men shall praise thee; the residue of wrath thou wilt gird upon thee. 11 Make your vows to the Lord your God, and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared, 12 who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is terrible to the kings of the earth.
