To him that excelleth on Neginoth.

A Psalme or song committed to Asaph.
1
God is knowen in Iudah: his Name is great in Israel.
2
For in Shalem is his Tabernacle, and his dwelling in Zion.
3
There brake he the arrowes of the bowe, the shielde and the sword and the battell.
Selah.
4
Thou art more bright and puissant, then the mountaines of pray.
5
The stout hearted are spoyled: they haue slept their sleepe, and all the men of strength haue not found their hands.
6
At thy rebuke, O God of Iaakob, both the chariot and horse are cast a sleepe.
7
Thou, euen thou art to be feared: and who shall stand in thy sight, when thou art angrie!
8
Thou didest cause thy iudgement to bee heard from heauen: therefore the earth feared and was still,
9
When thou, O God, arose to iudgement, to helpe all the meeke of the earth.
Selah.
10
Surely the rage of man shall turne to thy praise: the remnant of the rage shalt thou restrayne.
11
Vowe and performe vnto the Lorde your God, all ye that be rounde about him: let them bring presents vnto him that ought to be feared.
12
He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the Kings of the earth.
