To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.
1
In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
2
In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
3
There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.
Selah.
4
Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
5
The stouthearted are spoiled, 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 the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
7
Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
8
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven;
the earth feared, and was still,
9
When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.
Selah.
10
Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
11
Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
12
He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
