{To the chief Musician.
On stringed instruments.
A Psalm of Asaph: a Song.}
In Judah is God known, his name is great in Israel;
2
And in Salem is his tent, and his dwelling-place in Zion.
3
There broke he the flashings of the bow, shield and sword and battle.
Selah.
4
More glorious art thou, more excellent, than the mountains of prey.
5
The stout-hearted are made a spoil, they have slept their sleep;
and none of the men of might have found their hands.
6
At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
7
Thou, thou art to be feared, and who can stand before thee when once thou art angry?
8
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from the heavens;
the earth feared, and was still,
9
When God rose up to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.
Selah.
10
For the fury of man shall praise thee;
the remainder of fury wilt thou gird on thyself.
11
Vow and pay unto Jehovah your God: let all that are round about him bring presents unto him that is to be feared.
12
He cutteth off the spirit of princes;
[he] is terrible to the kings of the earth.
